Family Immigration

Many families have become separated because of our inadequate immigration system, and family members in the United States have to jump through many hoops and wait for a long time in the hope that they might be reunited with their spouses and children. Others in the United States have found love across the borders only to learn that the process of marrying a foreigner is more difficult than anyone believes. Cook Attorneys can help you navigate the complicated process and avoid the many hazards involved in bringing family members or a fiance to the United States.


America has always been a beacon of freedom and a refuge for those seeking asylum from persecution and unjust treatment for their beliefs. If returning to your homeland threatens your life or safety, we will help you understand your options and complete the asylum process.

Initial Immigration Consultation

There are many rumors floating around regarding immigration law, deportation, and opportunities to obtain an immigration status. Be aware that some individuals who advertise immigration assistance and, unfortunately, even some attorneys, do not understand the process or, worse, take advantage of immigrants who want to believe there is hope to become documented. Our attorneys will provide a confidential consultation to help you understand what options may be available to you and to help you separate rumor from fact.


Cook Attorneys know that sometimes sacrifices have to be made in order to make the journey to the United States. We can help you apply for a family based visa for your family members that you wish to bring to this country.

Immigration and Criminal Charges

Consequences for criminal charges can be especially serious for individuals who are not United States citizens.  Being accused of a crime as a non-citizen is a serious matter. Offenses like domestic abuse, assault and battery, DUI and other offenses can lead to deportation and make it impossible to return to the United States.  At Cook Attorneys, we understand how criminal law intersects with immigration law and may be able to help you avoid excessive and irreversible long-term consequences of minor criminal convictions. If you have been charged with any crime, get help from an attorney you can trust who understands both immigration law and criminal defense.   Let us put our experience to work for you.

Firearms restoration and Expungement

After certain convictions, Virginia residents can permanently lose their right to possess a firearm. If you have lost your right to carry a firearm, you may have the opportunity to take steps to restore your civil rights, including the right to possess a firearm. Our attorneys can work with you to restore your gun rights and, in some cases, to expunge the documents relating to your arrest. A prior arrest sometimes causes problems down the road when pursuing employment and other opportunities. Under Virginia law, expungement may be available to erase the fact of an arrest from all official court and police records. Contact Cook Attorneys to see if expungement may be available for you. To contact our law firm, please send us an email or call 540-564-9699. We offer free initial consultations to all criminal defense clients. Se habla español.
