My Mission

“Every person and every matter, no matter how humble, deserves qualified and competent legal representation.”
-L. Ford Banister, II
American Travel Lawyer

The Law Office of L. Ford Banister, II is a law practice dedicated to this simple proposition.

American diplomatic posts receive millions of travel visa applications each year. The U.S. Consulate in Guangzhou, China is the world’s busiest U.S. diplomatic post. According to a December 2015 ChinaDaily article, the Guangzhou consulate issued more than one million non-immigrant visas in the twelve months preceding publication. The B-1 business visa and the B-2 tourist visa are the most common American travel visa types. As a matter of practice, the B-1 and B-2 visas are almost always issued together. These visa types permit the visa holder to travel to the U.S. for business, tourism, medical care and childbirth.

American Travel Visa applicants often believe that attorney review is prohibitively expensive. Entirely too many American Travel Visa applicants feel they have no choice but to attempt to navigate this complicated area of foreign law alone. Still others turn to so-called “visa agencies” or “visa consultants” who do nothing more than fill out forms and whose unqualified “advice,” if accepted may lead to serious immigration consequences including delays, denials and in some cases, long term bars to entering the United States.

(See my blog post entitled “How to Avoid Immigration Fraud” and U.S. Consulate at Guangzhou Warning.)

I am an immigration attorney, licensed to practice law by and in the State of New York and fully authorized to practice American immigration law throughout the United States and before U.S. consular posts around the world.

My firm’s flat fee prices are designed to ensure that each and every applicant receives a thorough review and sound legal advice from a qualified American travel visa lawyer at prices that may even be competitive with the referenced “visa consultants.” This is My Mission.

American Travel Visa applicants no longer have to brave the system without competent legal representation.
