(3/2018) Evelyn V: "It has been a long journey with you, Mr. Brill. Over six years since we won the humanitarian reinstatement case to keep my brother's case valid after my mom's death and now he has arrived here with his permanent resident status with his spouse and kids. I am so happy and thankful! Thanks for keeping at it!"

(10/2017) Juty J: "Thank you Mr. Brill for all of your help over these years to obtain permanent resident status for both myself and my son through my marriage. It has been a long road from the TPS program to our permanent residency and I thank you very, very much!"
I am a practicing immigration lawyer for more than 34 years and every case is handled personally by me. I work with all types of immigration cases from family and work visas; residency and citizenship to removal defense.
I offer telephone consults for free and then meetings for a consultation fee in either my main office in Brookline, MA. or in my office in Lowell, MA. when I am in Lowell on Wednesdays.
I speak some Spanish as well, but friends or family members are welcome to come in and assist as needed for interpreting.
I have families and individuals come back to me over the years to handle new cases for them and I have received a number of awards for my work in defending and helping immigrants from all over the world in family, business and immigration defense work.
