Providing essential legal services to new arrivals and the residents of Raleigh
The Law Firm of Paul A. Suhr is a practice dedicated to protecting the rights and interests of our clients. We represent clients in the areas of immigration and naturalization law, criminal defense, business and commercial law, and personal injury. Whether your legal needs involve corporate transactions, or you are facing a criminal charge, an injury, or an immigration issue, we will stand with you and protect your rights every step of the way.
For our clients seeking to immigrate to the United States for purposes of work, study, religious projects, research, or to join family members already living here, we provide assistance with visa applications and we aggressively pursue options for clients that have been denied visas. The immigration process can be complicated, especially for new arrivals and their family members. We work closely with our clients and their family members to see that we have taken every step necessary to ensure the acceptance of them or their loved ones.
We also represent clients facing deportation and removal proceedings. Our clients have rights in these proceedings, and we work tirelessly to enforce those rights. If you or a loved one is facing deportation due to a criminal conviction, an illegal entrance, or an expired or invalid visa, we can help.
In addition, we continue to work with clients that arrive in the United States from countries with governments and conditions that the United States considers "oppressive" and who are seeking asylum.
As a compliment to our immigration practice, we work with couples seeking to expand their family through international adoption.
If you are facing a criminal charge, whether it is a misdemeanor or a felony, you may be frightened and confused about what could happen to you. If convicted, you may be facing large fines and jail or prison time. You should not participate in criminal proceedings without an experience criminal trial attorney. We have extensive experience representing clients in criminal matters, including numerous successful jury trials. Whether your case calls for aggressive plea negotiations, or trial, we will zealously defend you from beginning to end. We also provide skilled and experienced post-conviction and appellate services. We have enjoyed success at the post-conviction stage, including successful pardon petitions. If you have been wrongfully convicted, or you have been charged, arrested, or indicted, do not hesitate to contact us.
In addition to our immigration and criminal practice, we assist our business clients with all manner of commercial transactions, including incorporations, partnership agreements, purchases and sales, contracts, and litigation of disputes.
We also work with clients suffering from personal injuries. Whether you were injured in an auto accident, or otherwise due to someone else's negligence, we will help you get compensation for medial bills, lost wages, and pain and suffering. Whether we are able to settle your claim with the insurance company, or your claim requires litigation, we will work hard to see that you get what you are entitled to.
