About

My name is Paul B. Grotas. I am a graduate of University of Pennsylvania and the Hofstra University School of Law. I am admitted to practice law in the State of New York.   You can reach me by email at paulgrotas@gmail.com or by phone at 646-581-9537.

I chose to focus on immigration law because I want to help people have a fair chance at starting a new life in this country. I believe in the “American Dream” and the fundamental principles that founded this great country.  At the core of these principles is the opportunity for foreigners to come to the United States and enjoy the freedom to start a new life and work to build a future here for oneself and one’s family.

America is a country built on the backbone of immigrants. In this country we are all truly immigrants, whether first generation or fifth generation; myself included.  My great-grandfather – who I am named after – was an immigrant who came to the United States in 1917 with little more than the clothes on his back and the dream of a better life. Respect for immigrants and the belief that everyone deserves a chance to start a life here is something that was instilled in me from childhood and it is a cause that I have devoted my career to ensuring – one client at a time.

Prior to opening my own practice, I spent the past several years running the immigration department for a local New York criminal defense firm. I chose to break off and start my own practice so that I might have a chance to offer more personalized, one-on-one services to my clients. Everyone’s situation is different and understanding the specifics of each individual’s case is crucial to achieving the desired outcome for each client. That is why I will be the only attorney handling your case from beginning to end.
