Our team has more than 20 years of combined legal experience solely focusing on immigration matters. We have built a reputation for delivering high quality and innovative legal solutions. We appreciate and value our clients’ partnership and longevity. Many of our clients select our firm because they trust our experience, knowledge, and stability. We are proud to serve clients today that we began assisting a decade ago.
We focus our resources toward a select number of clients that we know we can help with determination and partnership. We are selective about who we represent. We feel it is important to find the right fit between the client and their immigration lawyer.
We admire what our clients do in their own lives and we strive to make their work and professional lives better. There is no better feeling than helping a client cross a finish line and achieving their goals.
Our team is committed to and driven by positive results.
We consider the facts specific to your situation and design tailored solutions to help you achieve your goals. In immigration matters, there are often multiple ways to achieve a result. We value creativity and thinking outside the box to achieve your goals more efficiently.
We can’t guarantee results or predict the future for our clients. However, our clients’ experiences and testimonials speak for themselves.
What our clients say:
“Effective and clear communications, reasonable expectations of the success of the process, but always with the comfort of the trust transmitted and felt through the distance, that we were in the right hands, that we were taken care of by a friend.”
“How do you thank a fantastic team of angels when they have changed your life forever?.. there are no words to express it but know that I am forever grateful.”
In addition to being very responsive to our clients’ case specific communications, we also offer a variety of resources which provide access to important information. Our website, blog, and YouTube channel offer a multitude of FAQs and publications that we have created for our clients.

Testimonials & Reviews
Almost three years ago I landed with my wife at Jacksonville to start a new stage in my life as a professional soccer player. […] We found the best advice possible with Giselle and her team at Marks Gray. The entire process was successful thanks to excellent teamwork. […] Thank you Giselle for all your time invested in make our dreams of build a life here come true.
Atty. Carson and her Immigration Team made us feel comfortable and welcome the very first minute we came to their office. […] Her legal team is very organized, highly efficient, and truly dedicated in their work to get us our immigration documents processed and approved the fastest way possible. […] Atty. Giselle and her team are a great blessing to us indeed. They are not only the best at what they do, but also — and most importantly — they treated us as family.
Giselle is my “go-to” for Form I-9 and immigration compliance. I met Giselle over ten years ago when I was the HR Admin at Elkins Constructors. She provided us with practical and relevant guidance on immigration verification and compliance.
I have worked with Giselle for several years with our immigration needs. She is highly knowledgeable in all U.S. immigration and is very attentive to the needs of our Company. I have reached out with complicated cases and questions and, without hesitation, offer solutions and options. She and her team are true partners and has the best interest for the Company and our employees.
We are just beyond happy and cannot thank you enough. We never would have won this case without you. I was also shocked at the short time frame of the approval. We had resigned ourselves to the fact that we may not know anything for another year. We will give you the highest recommendations.

Navigating Name Discrepancies in Form I-9: Can Employers Accept Supporting Documents with Different Names?
Happy Fall, everyone! Last month I flew to Australia to participate in a Marathon there – and, of course, explore the amazing things the country has to offer. The entire experience was incredible, and it got me thinking about how working in HR is kind of like a...
You might be wondering: "How bad can a few simple I-9 mistakes be?" It's natural to think that a mistake or two won’t matter. Especially if you’re busy with lots of other things or haven’t been trained to avoid these mistakes. Unfortunately, when it comes to...
