Jamie H. Gorton

Founder, Managing Attorney


“I love my job, I love working for my clients, and I love being the best immigration lawyer I can be.”

Jamie Gorton founded the Law Offices of Jamie Gorton in November 2013 with a mission to resolve complicated immigration cases for immigrants and New Americans in Malden, Boston, and beyond. His family immigrated to the United States from England, Ireland, Poland, and Canada. He lives and works in Malden, Massachusetts and has built his practice around getting great results for clients.

Since starting the Law Offices of Jamie Gorton in 2013, Attorney Gorton has helped hundreds of clients win their immigration cases, including naturalization, family-based immigration, deportation defense, asylum, and complex waivers.

One of Jamie Gorton’s strongest talents is the ability to tell the client’s story in the context of the immigration law. “I really believe that I’m a storyteller at heart,” Attorney Gorton said. “Getting to know a deep understanding of a family or a business, and being able to tell that story to the Judge, or to USCIS, and really explain that person’s truth to the adjudicator, is the foundation of what I do. Every business and every individual have their own piece of the American Dream and getting the government to understand that dream inside the language of immigration is a challenge that will never get old for me.”

As the Principal Attorney at the Law Offices of Jamie Gorton, Jamie H. Gorton is responsible for:

  • Giving clients personalized legal services, designed just for them
  • Directing legal strategy across the firm
  • Giving fresh insights to clients and fellow attorneys
  • Constantly improving and enhancing the practice of immigration law
