Meet Your Immigration Lawyer
Daniel Patrick Shaffer
I am an American attorney 100% devoted to US immigration law and helping you chart your future in the US.
In my Washington, DC-based solo practice, I intentionally keep client numbers low so I have more time to devote to each individual, and I am always just a text or phone call away. In working with me, you will have direct access to your lawyer and peace of mind that your case is being handled by an attorney who lives and breathes immigration law.
In my practice as Shaffer Immigration Law PLLC, I focus primarily on family- and business-related immigration, including marriage-based green cards, fiance visas, E-2 visas, L-1 visas, EB-1A green cards, EB-2 NIW green cards, EB-3 green cards, and EB-2 green cards.
