Our firm can relate to clients on a personal level. As an immigrant herself, Attorney Kaysee-Saydee understands the personal plight, experience and hardships immigrants endure in the United States. She and her mother migrated to the United States from Liberia, West Africa about 23 years ago. Thus, we at KLG, LLC understand and identify with the desire to work hard, provide for one’s family and contribute as a constructive member of society. Therefore, we are passionate about immigration law and ensuring that everyone understands their legal rights as residents and citizens of the United States.
We assist individuals, families, and employers in the following immigration matters:

Adjustment of Status
Adjustment of status is the process used to apply for lawful permanent resident status (also known as applying for a Green Card) when the applicant is present in the United States. This means the applicant may get a Green Card without having to return to their home country and apply for an immigrant visa.
