U. S. Border Practice

What makes Green and Spiegel U.S. truly unique is our presence on both sides of the U.S./Canadian border. Started in 1992 by our Senior Partner, Evan Green, we have grown the practice with consistency each year, developing expertise in the ever-changing and unique procedures of U.S. Customs and Border Protection. Due to the volume and diversity of our U.S. border practice, we are repeatedly recognized by fellow immigration practices and clients as the ultimate resource in matters concerning U.S. border entries and applications.

U.S. Canadian Immigration Cross-Border Assistance

Our recent expansion to the U.S. (and the strategic location of offices in the Northeast United States and Toronto, Canada’s major business centre) has provided a valuable synthesis and increased our capacity to deal with critical cross-border immigration issues. We provide full services to Canadian nationals and Canadian residents
interested in working, investing, traveling to, or residing in the U.S. as well as to nationals of countries other than the U.S. or Canada.

The value of our expertise grows exponentially as security measures and regulations continue to increases at U.S. borders. This trend has been accompanied by growing trade and investment from Canada into the United States. If you are a foreign national, you are likely to encounter increased processing times or be asked to produce more information about yourself and to explain the purpose of your visit to the United States. We are here to help you make the process as painless and productive as possible.
