Attorneys Committed To Resolving Your Legal Issues

With over 30 years of combined experience, attorneys Paul Suhr and Melissa Mitchell are dedicated to representing clients in immigration, criminal defense, and family law matters in Raleigh and the surrounding areas.

This two-person team of attorneys and their staff are welcoming, sympathetic, and assertive when it comes to understanding your case and fighting for your rights. We have your best interest in mind and will be your line of defense when you need it the most.

Taking A Stand For Immigrants

We routinely work with immigrants who seek citizenship in the United States, and we can help our clients with issues such as:

  • Visa applications
  • Green cards
  • Citizenship
  • Naturalization
  • Employment for noncitizens
  • Deportation defense
  • Asylum applications

We have a strong understanding of the immigration laws in North Carolina and will provide straightforward guidance concerning the legal immigration process.

While attempting to obtain U.S. citizenship, one of the risks you may face involves deportation and removal. We know that deportation can be emotionally crushing for you and all members of your family. As your attorneys, we will guide you through the process of preparing legal documents and advocate for your right to not only stay in this country but become a legal citizen of the United States, as well, if that is your goal.

Growing Your Family Through International Adoption

Here at Mitchell & Suhr PLLC, our attorneys have extensive insight working with family law issues such as divorce, child custody, child support and international adoption.

We help prospective parents who are looking to adopt internationally. Challenges to international adoption can include lack of health and family history information, language and cultural differences, and the need for legal documentation that pertains to the Hague Adoption Convention.

As your attorneys, we will explain how this pertains to your adoption and how having an attorney represent you is vital to the outcome of your adoption.

Criminal Law Advocates

We defend those facing criminal charges, including felonies, misdemeanors, drug charges, white collar crimes, sex crimes and other state and federal crimes. We also represent clients who are in danger of being deported. We investigate all aspects of your case and take into consideration penalties, fines and potential jail time you could face. Our attorneys will craft a well-thought-out, detailed strategic plan to help resolve your case.
