The Law Offices of David M. Sperling immigration experts.

The Law Office of David M. Sperling, founded in 1995, is the largest and most reputable provider of legal services to immigrants on Long Island, New York. We take pride in our zealous representation never resting or giving up — even in the most difficult cases.

Even though most of our clients are Hispanic, we represent immigrants from around the world in family-based and employment-based cases. Our cutting-edge technology enables us to handle your case, wherever in the world you might live, from start to finish.

Our attorneys and paralegals speak many languages, including Spanish, Portuguese, German, French and Indonesian. Our clients never have to speak to an attorney through an interpreter.

Most important, we CARE about your case. The vast majority of our clients are referred through word or mouth — satisfied clients recommending our services to their friends and family.
We are happiest when our clients win their cases, and we will never give up until we have achieved the best possible outcome.

We have four conveniently located offices on Long Island — in Hempstead, Huntington Station, Central Islip and Riverhead.
