SDH US Immigration Law is a solo law practice devoted solely to matters arising under the US Immigration and Nationality Act.  We advise on business and personal immigration, visas, naturalization, and expatriation.  Based in the UK, we specialize in representing individuals with  applications before the US Embassy in London or the Consulate in Belfast, but we also assist individuals with consular matters throughout the world as well as appeals before the AAO.

Steven D. Heller has been practicing US immigration law since 1992. 

He began practicing with a small Washington, DC firm.  He then joined the Immigration and Naturalization Service (INS) in New York, and later Newark, before returning to legal practice with the New York Association for New Americans (NYANA), a New York-based non-profit organization.  He subsequently returned to the government, taking positions with US Citizenship & Immigration Services (USCIS) headquarters in Washington, DC.  In 2006, he relocated to the UK where, after a brief foray into private client representation with the Brighton solicitors firm of Burt, Brill & Cardens, he rejoined USCIS as an adjudicator at the US Embassy in London.   He left USCIS to join the London firm of Gudeon & McFadden, before establishing his own practice on the south coast of England.

Steven has experience in representing individuals and businesses in matters ranging from family- and business-based immigration to inadmissibility waivers and protection issues, as well as citizenship and naturalization. 

A 1991 graduate of the Georgetown University Law Center and a member of the New York Bar, he has spoken on US immigration matters before various groups and associations, including the American Bar Association, the American Academy of Adoption Attorneys, the American Immigration Lawyers Association (AILA), and community groups.

He has been quoted in UK media and appeared on CNN as an expert in US immigration law.  He has published articles on US immigration including articles in Benders Immigration Bulletin, Immigration Briefings, AILA’s Immigration Today, and the Solicitor’s Journal (UK). He is also the co-author, with Cheri Sicard, of US Citizenship for Dummies. 

Steven D. Heller is a member of the American Immigration Lawyers Association (AILA) and the New York City Bar Association. He is currently co-chair of the AILA NY Chapter Consular Liaison Committee and a member of the AILA London Chapter Consular Liaison Committee.
