Overview

Established in 1982, the Law Offices of Robert P. Gaffney has over 30 years of experience counseling a wide range of corporate and individual clients in areas of employment- and investment-related immigration matters. The firm has developed significant expertise in the representation of E-1 and E-2 treaty traders and investors, H-1B professionals, L-1 intra-company transferees, and O-1 persons of extraordinary ability, as well as individuals immigrating under the EB-5 “immigrant investor” visa program and the various employment-based visa categories. With offices located in San Francisco, we have successfully represented clients from across the United States and around the world.

Our attorneys are supported by a highly skilled, multi-faceted team of assistants with native fluency in multiple dialects of the Chinese language as well as English. In addition to our multilingual capabilities, we have an advanced understanding of the legal, social, and cultural context of East Asian countries affecting our clients’ businesses and families, which we successfully leverage to win our cases. Based on these strengths, we are often hired by other attorneys looking for specialized assistance or brought on to problem-solve a case that has reached a dead end. We are, in this sense, “an attorney’s attorney.”
