Butvilas & Associates PC


About Us

Butvilas & Associates P.C. is the immigration law firm that represents clients in complex immigration cases in family and employment immigration area and removal proceedings. In addition, our associate attorneys handle family law and criminal cases having in mind that legal issues facing immigrants often may require different approach than the same legal issues facing American citizens.

The successful resolution of our clients’ cases requires a balance of well grounded understanding of law and perseverance dealing with the government agencies. We make every effort to obtain the results as quickly as possible. When government is failing to timely address our clients’ needs, we take the case to federal court to assure that the rights of our clients are properly protected.

Over the years, our strong record of excellent client service and success has earned Butvilas & Associates P.C. the trust of colleagues, clients and their families and friends.
