Privacy Policy


At the law offices of Philip Eichorn, we represent clients in a variety of immigration-related matters. Immigration law is a complex “legal specialty of its own.” It is a “labyrinth that only a lawyer can navigate” and is “second only to the Internal Revenue Code in complexity.” Choosing an intelligent, experienced and determined immigration attorney to protect you and your interests throughout your family's case is the wise choice.

Our practice is focused primarily on immigration law and the immigration consequences of criminal matters ("crimmigration").  Our clients benefit from our specialized knowledge of this complicated field. Our top priority is to provide you with high-quality legal work and superior client service.  Great legal work is driven by both academic and real-world experience as well as tireless preparation.  Our ability to provide outstanding service is facilitated by our accessibility and understanding of our clients’ needs and concerns.

We assist and counsel businesses and entrepreneurs in:

Crimmigration - The Intersection of Criminal and Immigration Laws

Our firm also routinely co-counsels with criminal defense attorneys across the country regarding the immigration consequences of criminal convictions to obtain better outcomes for their non-citizen clients. It is especially important that foreign nationals charged with crimes obtain a criminal defense attorney who has extensive experience with immigration law, because even misdemeanor convictions can lead to deportation, detention without bond, denial of naturalization or exclusion from reentry after having traveled abroad.

Benefit from Our Experience

Attorney Philip Eichorn is a professor of Immigration Law at the Cleveland-Marshall College of Law. He is also the chairperson of the Ohio Chapter of the American Immigration Lawyers Association (AILA), the premier association of immigration attorneys. Attorney Eichorn has practiced immigration law around the country for many years and each case builds on his ability to identify creative resolutions for even the most complex immigration issues.  Attorney Eichorn has represented foreign nationals before many immigration courts throughout the country, the Board of Immigration Appeals and several Circuit Courts of Appeal.  His experience can make a difference.

Practice Locations – Nationwide But Primary Office In Ohio

Our main administrative office is located in Cleveland, Ohio, and we practice extensively in Charlotte, North Carolina.  Recenct trips have taken Attorney Eichorn to Newark, New York, Memphis, Salt Lake City, Seattle and San Diego to mention a few.  Attorneys who practice immigration law are practicing federal law and, therefore, may practice immigration law nationwide.
