Mrs. Cynthia Groomes Katz, J.D., LL.M., the
founder of our law firm (and recently named "Advocate of The Year" by
the American Immigration Lawyers Association - AILA DC Chapter, covering
Maryland, Virginia, and Washington, DC) along with one of our clients,
was interviewed on TV, July 5, 2007, for a story on excessive delays
faced by Lawful Permanent Residents (Green Card holders) waiting years
beyond filing, well after the legally prescribed time period, to finally
receive US Citizenship - but are still waiting. Mrs. Katz helped this
client become a citizen, a couple of weeks later. -
Law Offices of Cynthia A. Groomes, P.C. is an international law firm, founded by renowned immigration attorney, Cynthia Groomes Katz, J.D., LL.M., with a focus on solutions to legal matters pertaining to immigration law, nationality law, and ancillary issues. As an experienced immigration lawyer, Ms. Katz recognized the importance of a highly professional, responsive, and service oriented law firm where open and forthright communication with clients and prospective clients is of paramount importance - on par with the importance of exceptional legal strategy, advice, and work product.
As an immigration law firm, we serve the needs of clients from all over the United States of America, U.S. Territories, and from around the world. For matters regarding immigration and nationality law, our ability to serve your needs is not dependent on your location or access to our offices. The firm also represents clients in limited areas of family and business law as the needs of individual clients might dictate. For areas of law other than immigration and nationality issues, our practice is geographically limited to Maryland and Washington, DC.
The vast majority of our clients contact us through referral from other attorneys or current or previous clients. This web site exists only as a courtesy for a point of reference or contact. We do not offer walk up consultations. An appointment is necessary for a legal consultation and can usually be arranged within one day of your initial contact, if necessary, and even sooner if the situation is an emergency or urgent. Consultations may be conducted in person or telephonically. While the firm does have the technological capabilities, due to the private and confidential nature of attorney-client privileged communication, security concerns limit the usefulness of the internet for certain types of detailed communication.
We receive hundreds of email inquiries per week and respond to personalized inquiries as soon as possible. Time restraints do not allow us to respond to broadcast inquiries. If you are in need of our services, please contact us by telephone, as opposed to email, for the timeliest response. If you need to contact us or correspond by mail or courier, all mail and packages should be addressed to our main office in Bethesda, Maryland USA.
If we may be of service to you either now or in the future, we look forward to hearing from you. If you anticipate a need for legal services, please remember that an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure. Thank you for visiting the World Wide
