Becoming a permanent resident or citizen of the United States is a dream for people all over the world. Those who pursue it sometimes do so at great risk. It costs time and money. Families may sometimes be left behind. Each person’s story and circumstances are unique.
How do you do it? Who do you trust? It starts with finding a reputable immigration lawyer near you. For immigrants in Las Cruces, New Mexico and beyond, that’s Lauren Armstrong.
A Trusted Las Cruces Immigration Lawyer
Ms. Armstrong is passionate about immigration law because it’s life-changing. “I know how frustrating and scary the process can be to get your green card or citizenship. And for me, it’s really a privilege to help guide somebody through that so they can find freedom and safety at the end,” she says.
Ms. Armstrong’s experiences as a Peace Corps volunteer in Panama shaped her desire to work for social justice and help create access to services for community members. After going to law school, Ms. Armstrong worked in the non-profit sector in Washington, DC, where she handled her very first immigration cases. Ms. Armstrong saw firsthand the transformation that could occur in a person’s life when they were able to legalize their status. As an immigration lawyer in the borderlands with over ten years’ experience, Ms. Armstrong serves as a bridge between the immigration system and the people who need to navigate it.
