Areas of Practice
Employment Based Immigration includes temporary H1-B visas for professionals, and L-1 visas for managers and executives and O-1 visas for entertainers and other persons of extraordinary ability. Skilled workers and unskilled workers can obtain permanent visas through the Perm Labor certification process. Certain persons including multinational executives and managers persons of extraordinary ability and outstanding researhcers and professors can obtain a waiver of the labor certification process. However there are over a dozen different employment based visa types. We carefully analyze background and skills to determine alternatives and select the most appropriate visa options.
Compliance for Employers is rapidly becoming the most important area of immigration law. We advise employers on how to maintain appropriate immigration records including paper and electronic compliance for I-9 records in light of the changing environment, new rules and regulations and the current trend of immigration raids that can cripple a business if they are not prepared.
Family Based Immigration is through sponsorship by a U.S. Citizen or a family member who is a permanent resident. We assist in filling out the detailed applications, identifying legal issues which may affect eligibility and stand by you through the interview and follow up process. Our years of experience, careful planning and preparation will help us identify avoid - and if necessary, manage - potential immigration problems.
