The father and son partners of Gottfried and Gottfried LLP., Bob and David, share a family history of and commitment to U.S. Immigration. The Gottfried family has lived the immigration experience of our clients. Bob is a first generation American, as the son of a refugee from Nazi Germany, and the grandson of refugees from Czarist Russia. Both Bob and David chose to enter the field of immigration representation because they recognize the extraordinary opportunities that have been bestowed on them through their American citizenship; and their desire to help new foreign nationals live the American dream, by assisting them in obtaining permission to work, reside permanently, and ultimately become U.S. Citizens.
