Our Services

Bocancea Law Firm

We are an immigration law firm. We advise clients from all over the world on U.S. immigration law and visa matters. Our fundamental goal is to help our clients successfully accomplish their immigration-related objectives. Our experienced team offers dynamic and creative solutions to a wide range of complex U.S. immigration problems. With offices in the United States and Romania, Bocancea Law Firm is the only U.S. immigration law firm in Eastern Europe, and we are uniquely positioned to serve our European clients. We also speak several languages.

When thinking about doing business in the United States temporarily or permanently, it is important to have an experienced attorney on your side. Our team has over 20 years of combined experience, having worked with various types of clients. While some immigration procedures may appear simple at first, the legal considerations and ramifications that pertain to immigration are highly complex. Far too often our firm is contacted to do damage control after a situation has escalated. The consequences of not getting it right the first time vary anywhere from costly delays to a negative decision. Most errors made by those who self-represent would can generally be avoided if assisted by an experienced immigration lawyer.
