Meet Your Immigration Attorney

Daniel Patrick Shaffer

Immigration Lawyer Daniel Patrick Shaffer

I am an American attorney 100% devoted to US immigration law. In my Washington, DC-based practice, I intentionally keep client numbers low to ensure every individual receives the attention they deserve. Providing clients with direct access to their attorney is what sets my firm apart. Working with Shaffer Immigration Law PLLC provides peace of mind that your case is handled by a professional who lives and breathes US immigration law.

Shaffer Immigration Law PLLC focuses on family-based green cards (spouses, fiancés, parents, children, siblings), employment-based green cards (EB-1A, EB-2 NIW, EB-2, EB-3), employment-based visas (E-2 investors, L-1 transferees, O-1A, TN), and B1/B2 tourist visa applications.
