About the Firm

Nashville Immigrant Rights Attorney Since 2011

International Affairs Professional Since 2004

Brent Hessel, Esq.
Managing Attorney
Master of Arts in International Affairs

I am a great advocate of the essential place immigrants have in this country. Not only is immigration the foundation of our history, but it is the cornerstone of our future success. While I am a fourth-generation American, with roots based in Eastern Europe, my wife is a first-generation Cuban-American. We were both raised in Miami, Florida, a true melting pot of international culture. I have travelled extensively, visiting more than 30 countries on five continents throughout my life. As a result of these experiences, I have a deep and abiding respect and appreciation for difference and realize how fortunate I am to work in a field that allows me first-hand access to the diverse experiences our world has to offer.

When my wife, son, and I moved to Nashville after graduating from law school, I was so happy to experience the extent to which immigrant communities have successfully integrated into the center of our nation. I currently serve on the Board of Directors of the Tennessee World Affairs Council. I have represented hundreds of clients before the Immigration Courts, USCIS, the Department of Labor, and U.S. Consulates in many foreign countries before the full range of immigration matters. I approach every client creatively, finding solutions to their problems while making sure that each client and their families understand their options and the consequences of the choices they made.

Hessel Law continues to apply this creative and committed approach to protecting my clients’ rights and interests as I help them to navigate the complexities of U.S. immigration law. I offer full-service immigration solutions to individuals, families, employers, and investors, whether in obtaining permanent residence in the United States, nonimmigrant visas, or a strong defense during removal proceedings. I truly enjoy working on your behalf to keep your families together, to grow your business, and to protect your rights from threats both foreign and domestic.

I hope to have the opportunity to meet with and discuss your options for getting what you want.

My firm’s priority will always be our relationship with those who have allowed us to help them and their family to live and work safely and securely in your home, here in the United States. To reflect these values, our office is located in what was originally a single-family home, and is now zoned for commercial use. In a world that sometimes feels filled with anger and hatred, it is important to me that everyone who comes to see me can feel the way they should feel anywhere in this country: safe at home. It is a a warm, comforting space, which reflects my desirefor everyone who comes in to know that they are welcome.

We are conveniently located in Berry Hill, close to the intersection of I-440 and I-65 (where the Walmart and Home Depot are located), and less than 5 minutes West of Nolensville Pike, just off Thompson Lane. I hope that this location will be convenient and accessible for you, and believe that you will find that the space and location reflect the values we strive to maintain in my firm’s practice. I hope that you will call or text us, so we can greet you when you stop by and see how I can work to make you feel as welcome in our country, as you do in my office.
