Attorney Profile

Immigration Lawyer Philip Eichorn

As an attorney, I believe deeply in the promise of America as a nation of immigrants. Throughout our history, immigrants and refugees from all corners of the world have come to the United States, determined to improve their lives through hard work. In the process, they have made this country a strong and great nation. We must continue to attract the best and brightest from across the globe for our nation to flourish.

The primary focus of my law practice, Philip Eichorn Co., LPA, is serving the legal needs of immigrants throughout the country. My Firm is dedicated to aggressive and relentless legal representation in defending deportation or removal charges and obtaining bonds for immigrants detained by ICE or CBP. We provide experienced representation in obtaining all types of visas including fiancé visas, marriage visas and visas for other family members. We work and in hand with employers and routinely procure H-1B visas for specialty occupation employment, TN visas for Canadian citizens working in the U.S. and extraordinary ability visas for foreign nationals in sciences, education, business or athletics (commonly referred to as O-1's and O-2's). Finally, we believe the ultimate goal is citizenship, whether citizenship comes via naturalization or by determining if someone obtained citizenship automatically based on their family and immigration history.

In addition to running the firm and litigating cases, I am the teaching adjunct for immigration law at Cleveland State University Cleveland-Marshall School of Law.

As well, I am an active member of the Ohio Chapter of the American Immigration Lawyers Association (AILA). I am currently the Vice Chairperson of our chapter and have regular interaction with the Cleveland Immigration Court, the Cleveland USCIS Field Office and the local branch of Immigration and Customs Enforcement. In doing so, our Firm receives cutting edge information on happenings with the court and USCIS. This also allows us to help shape local policy.

My approach to immigration and citizenship law as well as my work as a criminal defense lawyer is grounded in my experience as an assistant county prosecutor. In the beginning of my career, I prosecuted both felonies and misdemeanors including drug trafficking, drug possession, burglary, domestic violence, theft, robbery and kidnapping, gaining valuable knowledge and building my skills as a trial attorney in the process. I learned how to think like the government, including how to evaluate evidence and what it takes to convict someone. Today, that is one of the strengths I offer my clients that many other immigration, criminal defense or DUI/DWI attorneys do not possess. There are few attorneys in northern Ohio who, like me, have both impaneled a criminal jury and successfully defeated the government in deportation & removal trials.
