Areas of Practice

United States Immigration & Citizenship

Our attorneys and staff have helped hundreds of clients navigate the vastly intricate American immigration system and begin to live their own “American Dream.” We represent individuals, families, and business owners in the immigration process. The way immigration laws are applied is constantly changing, and the legal process of gaining citizenship or residency in America can discourage even the most determined people. Regardless of where you are in the process, the federal immigration courts can be intimidating to many individuals, especially if English isn’t your first language. To be sure your interests are completely represented and the correct steps are taken to meet your objective, the help of an immigration lawyer is crucial. An immigration attorney who is very familiar with the laws, courts, and their staff will aid in completing the citizenship requirements successfully. We offer legal representation for the following areas:

  • Green cards and visas
  • Citizenship
  • Employment-based immigration
  • Family-based immigration
  • Adjustment of status and consular processing
  • Waivers of inadmissibility
  • Investment visas
  • Asylum

Corporate Immigration

U.S. Immigration law touches on many aspects of business and corporate life. Very often, employers wish to sponsor their employees for permanent residence or corporations need to bring skilled workers to the U.S. for a specific activity. Labor certification is one of the steps often necessary for getting a green card through employment.

In addition, there are many kinds of visas that apply to workers coming to this country because of a job opportunity or business venture – each visa is known by a letter-number combination as well as a name.

Some of the most common work-related visas include:

  • B-1 > Business visitors
  • E-1 > Treaty traders, their spouses and children
  • H-1B > Persons working in specialty occupations requiring at least a bachelor’s degree or its equivalent in on-the-job experience
  • H-2B > Temporary workers of various kinds coming to the U.S. to perform temporary jobs for which there is a shortage of available qualified American workers
  • J-1 > Exchange visitors coming to the U.S. to study, work, or train as part of an exchange program officially recognized by the U.S. Information Agency
  • O-1 > Persons of extraordinary ability in the sciences, arts, education, business, or athletics
  • P-1 > Internationally recognized athletes and entertainers and their essential support staff

We have helped individuals, corporations and other business entities large and small navigate the complex U.S. immigration rules at an affordable price. We would be honored to help your business and employment needs too.
