Facing Immigration Issues?
Contact Our Firm of Injury Attorneys for Legal Advice and Representation
As the son of migrant workers, injury attorney William McBride was raised to believe in hard work, commitment to family and justice for everyone. When he saw his family suffer from injustice due to an act of fraud, he decided to become a lawyer to protect those who cannot protect themselves. In his own community, he is affectionately called “Abogado William” because of his close client contact and dedication to serving others.
Attorney McBride founded the law firm of McBride, Scicchitano & Leacox, P.A. to serve individuals seeking to immigrate and build a productive life in our county.

Why You Need an Immigration Attorney
When you or a member of your family is facing an immigration issue, it may be tempting to file the necessary forms yourself. U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) offers a variety of legal forms on its website, which leads people to believe they can file the paperwork on their own. That is a huge mistake.
Immigration laws are incredibly complex. The laws and regulations, as well as the legal forms, are not written for everyday people to easily understand. In fact, many of the forms allow only a little room to answer the questions—what they do not tell you is most forms will not receive consideration unless you include certain supporting documents. These supporting documents can include affidavits by family members, employers and health care professionals. They can include evidence of medical hardship, psychological hardship, financial records and even family photographs. Without these supporting documents and additional evidence, a person’s application may have little chance of being accepted.
An immigration officer may deny an application or waiver request for many reasons. Qualified legal assistance is absolutely essential for successfully resolving an immigration dispute.
