The Immigration Law Practice Area offers a comprehensive range of immigration and naturalization legal services to corporate, small business and individual clients. We focus on temporary and permanent immigration, as well as citizenship.

Temporary/Nonimmigrant Visas

We offer analysis, advice and handle applications for individuals seeking to enter the U.S. to visit, study or work, or change visa categories. Each status has its own eligibility requirements, advantages and disadvantages, and therefore individualized attention and communication are crucial to a successful outcome. We have experience in guiding individuals and companies in the following areas:

  • B1/B2 (visitor for business or pleasure) and visa waiver
  • F1 (student)
  • J1 (exchange visitor)
  • E (treaty trader or investor)
  • H-1b (temporary worker)
  • L-1 (intracompany transferee)
  • O-1 (outstanding researcher, professional or artist)
  • P-1 (athlete or performer)
  • R-1 (religious workers)
  • TN (NAFTA category for Mexican or Canadian professionals)

Immigrant Visas/ Permanent Residence (Green Cards)

We represent both individuals and employers who apply for or sponsor foreign national through employment-based or family-based petitions. It is important to discuss and plan for the applicable processes, timing, and importance of remaining in valid temporary status, where applicable, due to visa backlogs and retrogression.

Our firm fully understands the necessity of keeping abreast of the most recent changes in immigration laws, understanding the importance of filing concurrent adjustment of status applications, mastering the intricacies of filing labor certification applications with the Department of Labor, complying with recruiting requirements for advertised positions, and helping clients plan for interviews at U.S. embassies around the world. We can counsel employers regarding hiring foreign personnel who have existing or pending applications or whose status is about to terminate. Our attorneys have extensive experience in all facets of immigrant visas, including:

  • Labor certifications (PERM)
  • Immigrant visa petitions for family members and workers
  • Priority workers: multinational executives and managers
  • Outstanding professors and researchers
  • Exceptional ability in the sciences, arts or business
  • Special Immigrant religious workers
  • Investors
  • Marriage-based green cards, including same-sex marriage cases, and removal of   conditional residence
  • Waivers (I-601 and I-601A provisional waivers)

We also offer counseling and advice for family members of foreign nationals who must apply for or renew visa status, and citizenship applications for those seeking naturalization.
