The Law Office of Raphael M. Scheetz is experienced in meeting the unique immigration needs of US citizens and other foreign nationals living in and outside of the USA.

Our approach is to ensure that we understand our clients and provide personalized legal service while guiding them through the often difficult and confusing process.

We have developed long-lasting relationships with many of our clients who were more than satisfied with the outcome of their case and recommended us to their friends and family. In fact, 80% of our new cases come through referrals. We have represented people from all parts of the world – Europe, Africa, southeast Asia, China, India, Canada, Mexico, and many other countries.

Online Skype Consultation
Even if you are overseas or not local to Cedar Rapids, you can meet with Mr. Scheetz through a Skype consultation. Contact our office directly to it set up.

I had at least a couple of experiences with attorney Scheetz. When a person doesn’t have a case, he will tell you. If he can really help, he will gladly also say so. The problem with many immigration attorneys is that they will just take your money and give you false hopes so they can get business, not so with attorney Scheetz. If you ask him, however, to delay a deportation, he will be able to do so by many years, but he will tell you that on front if you have a good case or not. In my opinion, he’s a young attorney from the “old school”, that is, with traditional ethical values, and that’s what matter at the end of the day.


At Scheetz Law Office we represent clients in a wide range of immigration-related matters, including:

  • Asylum
  • Immigration Reform
  • Deportation
  • Non Immigrant Visa
  • Family Immigration
  • US Naturalization/US Citizenship
  • Permanent Residence
  • Same Sex Marriage

Ray Scheetz helped my wife with her transition from being on a work visa in the US to a permanent resident. His expertise in the field and ability to thoroughly explain the steps of the process put our minds at ease during an already stressful time. His follow up kept us on task with regards to the timing of key dates in the process, and after she received her permanent resident card, he circled back to check on how we were, a very kind and personal touch we won’t ever forget.



I was so lucky that Mr. Scheetz was my Immigration Lawyer. Everything seemed to turn from black to white after meeting with him. His immediate attention and action were extremely impressive. Thank you!
