Products & Services

Empower Law provides services related to immigration, business, and family law.


We specialize in immigration law for both individuals seeking to live and work in the United States and for American businesses looking to legally employ individuals from other countries.

We serve our diverse community by assisting immigrants, their families, and Americans who are married to immigrants. Our clients take huge personal and financial risks to pursue their dreams, often leaving behind established positions and status. Our passion is to help our clients navigate the sometimes complicated immigration process as quickly and easily as possible, with compassion, integrity, and respect.

Business Law

We assist corporations and businesses with a wide variety of legal services, including employment-based immigration compliance, contracts, company formation education, and counseling.

We love collaborating with business clients who are diverse, progressive, innovative, and dedicated to sustainable, non-exploitive working practices; international fair trade; and environmental and social awareness.

Our goal is to help your business serve humanity and prosper to its fullest potential while protecting you from legal traps.

"Many of life's failures are people who did not realize how close they were to success when they gave up." -Thomas Edison

Family Law

At Empower Law we believe in a constructive, non-confrontational approach to family law matters. We recognize that family law disputes should be dealt with in a manner designed to protect and preserve the dignity of all the parties. We strive to negotiate in a civilized way and to encourage our clients and their spouses to put their differences aside and reach fair agreements. Experience shows that such agreed solutions are more likely to work in the long term, particularly when children are involved, than any arrangements imposed by a court. It's about what is right versus what one's rights are.

"Unless both sides win, no agreement can be permanent." - Jimmy Carter

"Three years ago I got an exciting job offer at the school I am currently working at. However, being a foreigner, I couldn't legally work here in the US without a work permit (H1-B visa). The head teacher at my school recommended Eric Jones, who was also handling her case at the time. Before talking to Mr. Jones, I had already talked to a couple of lawyers. But all I got was pessimism and uncertainty from all of them. Needless to say, I did not expect much from the next lawyer I was about to meet with. However, I was pleasantly surprised by what followed. Mr. Jones took over my case only after he was one-hundred-percent sure and positive of the outcome. It lifted my spirits to know that I was in good hands.

Mr. Jones is a very optimistic person. He is confident, straightforward, knowledgeable, and collected. He treats each client as a family member. No matter how many times you call him, he is always there with a calm attitude and smile on his face, ever ready to serve you. He always returned my calls promptly. He assured me that I would not have to worry and that he would handle everything. I must say that my case progressed exactly as he said it would ... he was extremely patient with me and answered all my questions uncomplainingly. I had great representation and I really felt like he cared about me. That means a lot when an attorney is not just looking at the dollar sign. I am very impressed with his work. His firm really knows what they are doing and I would refer them to anyone. Thank you Eric for a marvelous job on my case. You made the impossible POSSIBLE!"

— Laila Kabani

"We obtained my wife's green card approval with the help of Eric's excellent legal services. Eric walked us through the entire process from end to end, and he prepared us for the expected as well as the unexpected. Eric is one of the kindest, friendliest, and most honorable attorneys we have ever obtained legal services from. His honesty and integrity is truly in a class of its own, and we will definitely maintain our relationship with him for our future legal needs."

— LaVonte Elegan

"I have had several attempts to write a glowing testimony for your web site. Every time I have written something, it's sounded so corny-I'm still working on it. How do you say Eric Jones saved my life for real! And the other ones I wrote sounded like a commercial... If you are even looking at this web site, you do need Eric Jones-I am standing here because of him. I wrote about how I was detained out of state and Eric got me out and helped my family deal with the situation emotionally. He is better than a lawyer... he is a superstar to not just me but to everyone I know across the globe (and it's true that you now have many fans, Eric)!"

— Carlie Fisher

"With all heart and sincere gratitude to Mr. Eric Jones and his law firm that made it possible for me to get my permanent residency status [Green card] after being in the United States over 13 years, I am writing this personal testimony for others not to lose hope in adjusting their immigration status in the United States.

Empower Law firm believes in preserving and fighting for the dignity of the human persona despite the legal issues. Every time I visited Mr. Jones's office, I felt welcome and taken into consideration with my thoughts and opinions about my own case and others.

I want to thank Mr. Jones for always taking in consideration what was best for me when he consulted with other professionals to make a decision on my case. My life has changed for the better and now it has a sense of direction to help others in my limited capacities to promote social justice, not to lose their hope to life and pursuit of happiness in the United States.

Mr. Jones's tenacity and strong advocacy between the criminal justice system, US government, and the Department of Immigration restored the hope that was lost in me. Mr. Jones advocated for my human and civil rights, as he understood the permanent implications that my deportation to El Salvador would imply for my life."

— Jose

"Dear Mr. Jones,

I would like to express my appreciation for having had the opportunity to utilize your services as an attorney in my effort to regularize my status in the United States. … I was fascinated by the promptness with which you responded to me and then you gave me all the information that I needed to know.

You continue to provide me with all the support needed, which includes completing all the paperwork that needed to be done and submitting it to the Homeland Security. … I got my Employment Authorization few months ago which gave me the opportunity to get employment in the US. Now my application for change of status has been approved. I have been granted permanent resident status.

Thanks to you and your staff."
