About Us

Attorney J. Bradley Pace was first licensed to practice law in 1987, and has had a broad range of experience in state and federal courts. His first 12 years of practice were focused on business and personal injury litigation, and divorce. He has continued to develop these areas of expertise, and regularly networks and partners with other attorneys working in these practice areas.

In 1999, he began his experience in the complex and rapidly changing field of immigration law by serving as immigration legal counsel to a non-profit agency. In this capacity he provided immigration assistance to hundreds of refugees from war torn nations, and from other areas of the world facing crisis. Today he provides comprehensive legal services to individuals and families coming from around the world in search of their own American dream.

Pace is licensed to practice law in Missouri and Kansas, and also various federal courts. He has represented businesses, individuals, public employers, and non-profit agencies before the United States Citizenship and Immigration Services, Immigration Court, Board of Immigration Appeals and the U.S. Eighth Circuit Court of Appeals. He provides comprehensive immigration representation including the full range of employer based worker petitions, family based relative cases, individual applications, as well as overseas consular processing. He also advises corporate and public entity human resources departments regarding corporate compliance with federal and state immigration laws, including anti-discrimination provisions. He has been a member of the American Immigration Lawyers Association since 2000. Over the years he has also continued to provide divorce representation, also offering conscientious and caring attention to detail for friends and clients going through the traumatic end of a marriage.

Pace is a frequent writer on historical subjects, and has authored a book on Missouri's historic courthouses (see link). He is a past president of the Jackson County Historical Society.
