About

Garcia & Qayum Law Group, P.A. is uniquely qualified to provide the most effective and competent legal representation to those in need of guidance in most matters related to criminal and immigration law in Miami. We bring an impressive set of skills and experience to the table when it comes to counseling clients facing immigration issues, even when their situation is complicated by criminal charges or convictions.

Our team stands apart from the rest because our involvement with immigration law started well before we began practicing in this arena. We have a strong understanding of the needs and concerns of migrants because we went through the immigration process ourselves.

We recognize the questions you may have, we empathize with your fears, and completely understand what you need in a legal representative because we once had those same questions, concerns, and needs. Members of our team are immigrants themselves, including a partner that was detained by ICE at Krome Service Processing Center when they arrived in the US from Cuba on a raft.

Fluent in both English and Spanish, our team of attorneys has dedicated a large part of their lives to establishing one of the most qualified, experienced law firms in immigration law, inspired by their own experiences.

Each member of our team has their own story to tell as an immigrant, and that background equips them with a wide variety of perspectives that most other lawyers cannot relate with. It would be challenging to find another law group with personal experience in immigration, coupled with legal expertise and knowledge that allows them to help others like they were once helped.

Of course, it is not just our team’s personal stories that contribute to the skills you need to succeed; our attorneys have years of practice in the legal world in South Florida and beyond, giving them invaluable inside knowledge. We have worked at some of the highest levels of both the judicial system and governmental agencies, giving us the “inside scoop” on how the system works, and how to make it best work for you.

Our legal team consists of lawyers that have served with the Executive Office for Immigration Review with the Department of Justice, District Attorney’s offices, the Florida State Attorney’s Office, and the Third District Court of Appeal, and have many years of working for the rights of immigrants like themselves.

The lawyers at Garcia & Qayum Law Group understand how to help and are invested in providing compassionate, effective representation to those that may feel like they have nowhere else to turn. We know how dangerous the wrong advice can be to a client dealing with immigration issues and know how to deal with any legal situation, no matter how complex.

Whether you are in danger of removal proceedings being filed against you, you already have the proceedings scheduled, or if you are in the custody of ICE at one of their immigration detainment centers (such as Krome or the Broward Transitional Center), Garcia & Qayum Law Group was explicitly created to help those in your situation.

Immigration law is not our only area of expertise. Many clients that need legal representation may also have criminal charges that must be dealt with, and if these circumstances are not handled properly, those charges can harm their immigration status.

For example, a mother of three was in danger of being removed from the United States, due in large part to a conviction for Grand Theft on her record. Not knowing what to do, or if she had a chance to remain in the country at all, she turned to our team at Garcia & Qayum Law Group in Miami.

We worked with her to find the best way to overcome her issues, and after several years of legal battles, she now has lawful, permanent status in the United States, where she remains with her family. It is possible that the outcome would not have worked in her favor if she did not employ the best legal representation when she did.

There is no need to spend time worrying needlessly, searching for someone that understands your life and what you want to achieve with it; we had those same dreams once, and now we can help you reach them as well. If you are looking for an immigration attorney that will listen, be compassionate, and remain committed to your case, you have come to the right place.

Garcia & Qayum Law Group, P.A. has helped many people navigate the complicated path that is the immigration process, guiding them toward a future in America, and we can do the same for you. Call us today at (305) 230-4020 to schedule an appointment to find out how we can help you. Alternatively, visit our offices at 3475 W. Flagler St. in Miami.
