Firm Profile

Teresa M. Graw, Esq. is the managing attorney and sole owner of Teresa M. Graw, LLC (the “Firm”). The Firm, which has been practicing since 1992, provides personalized, timely and expert legal advice with respect to all areas of United States Immigration and Nationality Law to a broad range of clients from around the world. Our clients include individuals, families, small to medium-sized businesses and Fortune 500 companies. As a U.S. citizenship and naturalization lawyer in Shrewsbury, NJ, Attorney Graw also serves as special immigration counsel to other attorneys and law firms.

Many of our corporate clients are leaders in industries such as telecommunications, finance, real estate, pharmaceuticals, healthcare, construction, and advertising. Some include cutting edge scientists, researchers, and entrepreneurs in emerging businesses in high tech industries. The Firm represents companies when the level of immigration law expertise needed surpasses the general knowledge of in-house counsel, human resources departments or other, less focused, law practices.

As a family-based immigration lawyer, Teresa M. Graw, LLC, also represents individuals and families from around the world. These are people who may be in many different phases of immigration to the United States. When it comes to representing and advising people, the breadth of our experience is very diverse and has involved many different types of legal advocacy, from representing unaccompanied children from Central and South America who fled their home countries to escape persecution to advising foreign nationals, who are expatriate executive employees of U.S. companies, on how to maintain their permanent residence while working abroad for extended periods.

Although our client base is quite diverse, our full-service immigration law firm serves clients with the same extraordinary level of personal attention. Attorney Graw personally assesses each matter and is the main point of contact for every client. All of our clients, therefore, receive the benefit of having a knowledgeable attorney, with over twenty-three years of experience working in the area of United States Immigration and Nationality Law, representing them, regardless of their individual circumstances. This unique standard of excellence is much more than other, larger law firms offer, where it is common for paralegals and office staff, with little experience, education and personal investment, to be the only people a client ever interacts with. Attorney Graw is also fluent in Spanish and is happy to converse with Hispanic clients in Spanish.
