Immigration Law

Attorney Irina G. Ehrlich, a member of AILA (American Immigration Lawyers Association) , has a personal knowledge of immigration.

Irina came to the United States with her family from the former Soviet Union – the Ukraine – in 1994 and became a United States citizen in 2000. To obtain and file necessary documents for her family, Irina had to deal with the bureaucratic agencies of the former Soviet Union – in the Ukraine and Russia. Irina also had to prepare her family for an interview at the American Embassy in Moscow. While in the United States, Irina, her parents and even her 93 year old grandmother received Green Cards and five years later they all became the United States citizens.

Irina, fluent in Russian and Ukrainian, understands first hand cultural and language barriers that immigrants have to overcome in this country. Irina’s knowledge of immigration issues earned her the Managing Editor’s position on the prestigious International and Comparative Law Journal of the Temple University Beasley School of Law.

After graduation from the Temple University Beasley School of Law, Irina began her legal career in the Philadelphia District Attorney's Office. For over 13 years, Irina prosecuted complex gun and drug cases, assaults, burglaries, robberies, child abuse and White Collar crimes. Irina's victims and witnesses often were immigrants from Eastern European, African, Asian, Latin and Middle Eastern communities. Irina knew how to comfort and put them at ease and how to help them navigate the legal system.

Irina is always committed to representing her clients' best interests. Whether you need help in bringing a family member from overseas, wish to work or study in the United States, or need help with the naturalization process, contact Irina.

If you are not a citizen and you are arrested and charged with a crime, it is very important you contact Irina – the criminal attorney with knowledge of immigration law. A criminal conviction could be grounds for deportation or removal from the United States. If you apply for a work visa, Green Card (permanent residence) or citizenship, the Immigration Service will review your criminal history and may deny your application. Your future and your family's future are in your hands. If you need help, contact our office.
