The Law Office of Kathryn N. Karam, P.C.

The immigration system in the United States is, sadly, broken. The failure of Congress to act on immigration reform has left the regulation of who can come into our country entirely out of step with the economic and social needs of our country.

Navigating the immigration system, whether to bring a talented person to the Houston area to work, to unite a family, to escape violence, or for any other reason, is a daunting challenge. However, having an experienced advocate on your side who knows how to address complicated problems can make a significant difference.

Passionate About Helping You Through the Immigration System 

Before pursuing a career in law, Kathryn Karam spent a significant amount of time abroad, particularly in China, as she sought a bachelors degree in Chinese Studies from Trinity University. There, she experienced firsthand what it's like to be an outsider in an unfamiliar place.

She decided to attend law school at the University of Texas School of Law, one of the top-ranking programs in the country, because she wanted to work in an action-oriented career that would allow her to help people. She possessed an innate skill at solving puzzles and complex problems, and knew being an attorney would allow her to exercise that skill for good.

In law school, she realized that her problem-solving skills could be put to work for people experiencing in this country what she did in China. She decided she would pursue a career in immigration law. Kathryn Karam worked with the Political Asylum Project of Austin (now known as American Gateways) and as a Student Attorney in the UT School of Law Immigration Clinic.

We Partner With Gulf Coast Employers Recruiting Global Talent

Houston in an international city, with companies that have reach around the world. Businesses in Houston are able to seek the best and brightest from across the globe. However, actually getting these talented people into the United States requires getting through the U.S. immigration system.

Employees coming from other countries will require either an immigrant visa or a nonimmigrant visa, depending on whether the position is a permanent or temporary one. The type of visa will also depend on the necessary qualifications for the job, the employee's individual qualifications and, sometimes, the country from where they are coming.

Kathryn Karam has extensive experience as a lawyer working with large corporations to small businesses on many types of employment-based immigration matters. She is able to find innovative solutions to problems that can arise, including tentative nonconfirmations, requests for evidence and notices of intent to deny.

Let's work Together to Bring  Your Family to Houston

A key purpose of immigration law in the United States is to promote family unity. Unfortunately, the law is broken, and that purpose can often be ill-served. If you are seeking to help spouses, children, parents or brothers and sisters become permanent residents, citizens or visit the United States, the process can be long and complicated.

Having an attorney as a guide can mean avoiding many complications, and having an advocate who is ready to handle them can make a tremendous difference in the outcome of your family member's immigration process, including deportation proceedings. Kathryn Karam has been working to help unite families in Texas since she was still in law school, and still helps people come to the United States or remain here.

Kathryn Karam can also assist any person with other family-based immigration matters, including assisting victims of domestic violence, crime victims seeking refuge, and juveniles seeking to immigrate to the United States.
