The law firm’s founding attorney, Laura Edgerton, established Edgerton Immigration Law to provide a different type of immigration service to our clients. You do not believe your case or your business is a commodity and neither do we. We believe that every client and situation is unique. Our law firm prides itself on providing expertise, individual attention, and exceptional client service to each matter. We stand out because we combine the large firm experience and sophistication that many businesses want from their immigration lawyers with the friendliness, flexibility, personal attention and reasonable fees of a small firm.
We are also extremely pleased that our firm received a Raleigh Metropolitan First Tier Ranking for Immigration Law in the inaugural 2010 "Best Law Firms" rankings by the U.S. News Media Group and Best Lawyers®, which is an honor that was repeated in the 2011, 2014, 2015, 2016, 2017 and 2018 and 2019 rankings.
With over twenty years of immigration experience, recognition in The Best Lawyers in America® and North Carolina Super Lawyers® magazine, and leadership roles in the American Immigration Lawyers Association, our founder Laura Edgerton is an experienced immigration lawyer who understands the immigration needs of companies and enjoys working with businesses of all sizes. We take particular pride in helping entrepreneurs, investors, emerging businesses, and multinational companies entering the U.S. market to grow and succeed by obtaining the work visas and permanent resident status they need for their key employees.
Ms. Edgerton is also delighted to have worked with some of the brightest and most innovative researchers, scientists, business people and academics from around the world, as well as Olympic athletes and coaches, Emmy and Academy Award winners, and performers, in securing permanent residence through the extraordinary ability (EB-1 and O-1 Extraordinary Ability Visa), outstanding researcher (EB-1 Outstanding Researcher Visa), and national interest waiver categories.
While we strive to help our clients achieve their dreams, we have also learned that no one is an island. People need people. That means that people who are here for business, work, education and other reasons need their families. We take satisfaction in helping people obtain the family-based visas that keep families together.
We look forward to working with you to ensure that your immigration legal needs are met. Our Raleigh immigration law firm provides legal services for individuals and businesses throughout North Carolina (including Raleigh, Research Triangle Park, Chapel Hill, Durham, Morrisville, Cary, Fayetteville, New Bern, Wilmington, Greensboro, Winston-Salem, Charlotte, Asheville, and Greenville). Because U.S. immigration law is federal, we can assist clients throughout the United States and around the world. We are committed to using advanced research, communication and case management systems to stay current on the rapidly changing immigration laws and to keep our clients informed of changes in the law that affect them.
We understand that there is a lot of information out there. We also know that much of the information is incomplete, inaccurate, outdated or fails to discuss important exceptions to rules – all of which may directly impact your case. Our experience has taught us that the volume of available information frequently leaves people more confused than ever about how the laws affect them. Our goal is to provide real answers, rather than leaving you with more questions.
