Nataliya Gavlin founded Gavlin & Associates, P.C., providing clients with experienced, dedicated, and personal representation for various immigration issues.
She has extensive experience handling immigration matters before the Immigration Courts throughout the United States, USCIS, Board of Immigration Appeals, and Federal Courts.
Being an immigrant from Ukraine, she is very sensitive to all the issues her clients face in this country. She believes that this country is rich culturally because of the constant influx of new immigrants from around the world- those who come here to escape violence or persecution, seek a better future for themselves and their families, or find better job opportunities.
She loves meeting new people from other countries, learning about their lives and cultures, and being able to help them achieve their “American Dream,” starting with their immigration status. She feels rewarded and fulfilled after successfully handling hundreds of cases for her clients. She knows exactly what it means for someone who does not have legal status to finally get it, for someone who has been separated from their family for a long time to finally reunite, or for someone who has been persecuted and harmed in their country to finally find protection in the United States.
She is an active member of the American Immigration Lawyers Association (AILA). She also participates in a pro bono program with Immigration Equality, a nonprofit organization for the LGBT community. In addition, she frequently speaks at the Immigration Support Group at the Center in New York City.
