Investment Immigration

The Law Offices of Robert P. Gaffney in California has a national reputation as one of the most experienced and successful law firms practicing in the challenging and rapidly evolving field of EB-5 investment immigration. We are one of very few firms nationwide that has been continuously involved in representing immigrant investor clients since the EB-5 visa category was created by the U.S. Congress in 1990.

While our lawyers have represented EB-5 clients from every continent except Antarctica, our firm's reputation is built upon the representation of EB-5 clients from countries with transitional economies such as India, China, Vietnam, Indonesia, Russia, Iran, Afghanistan, Egypt and Latin American countries, where evolving legal, financial, political and social infrastructures and business practices can greatly complicate the task of documenting the lawful source of an investor's capital. With over three decades of experience in the specialized field of EB-5 immigration, the Law Offices of Robert P. Gaffney has developed a solid reputation for its sophisticated understanding of EB-5 law as well as the legal, social, cultural and political context of East Asian, Latin American and Middle Eastern countries affecting its clients' businesses and families.
