CITIZENSHIP                                                   

Our firm successfully represents applicants for naturalization and derivative citizenship.  Whether you have a complicated case due to prior mistakes with the criminal justice system, tax problems or allegations of fraud, we will consult and advise if citizenship is right for you.  

 

EMPLOYMENT IMMIGRATION

We pride ourselves on resolving cases for clients from all over the world, who are sponsored by companies from small businesses to Fortune 500 corporations.  We offer creative solutions for many entities seeking visas in categories such as H-1B, L-1, O-1, TN, E-1, E-2, J-1, and many other nonimmigrant work visas.

 

FAMILY BASED IMMIGRATION

Whether you are a US citizen petitioning for your parents, children or siblings, we can help you.  We also apply for green cards for the relatives of permanent residents.  Do not try to fill out the forms without proper guidance.  The laws often are modified by changes occurring on a weekly basis due to rulings from federal courts, new decisions by Homeland Security or changes in federal regulations. Allow our attorneys to guide you in taking the most important steps for your family and loved ones. 

 

GREEN CARDS

There are a variety of ways to get your green card.  Our constant, thorough review of the latest progress – in the ever-changing procedures by which to secure legal permanent residence status – will help you achieve the best outcome possible on your green card application.

 

H-1B AND ALL WORK VISAS

Immigrants who graduate from university, as well as inter-company transfers, are just two of the many bases of work visas we handle.  We have long standing relationships with industries ranging from manufacturers and distributors of a multitude of products as well as service providers in finance, law, health care and technology, among others.  Contact us to review your work visa needs.

 

INVESTOR VISAS

Especially E-2 nonimmigrant status resembles green card status in many ways. E-2s may remain in the US indefinitely, are not required to maintain ties abroad, can be engaged in self-employment if in furtherance of the investment, and their spouses can obtain work authorization. The investment need not always be extraordinarily high.  These cases are carefully prepared to advance the standing of immigrant investors in America.

 

J VISA WAIVERS

Our attorneys cases and will review all five types of waivers of the two-year J Visa home residency rule.  We can navigate you through the labyrinth of waivers and have decades of experience in successfully overcoming this impediment to permanent residence for many Immigrants.

 

K VISAS FOR FIANCÉES

A popular area of immigration law, K visas, are utilized by immigrants engaged to US citizens.  We have assisted hundreds of couples beginning a new life together in America.  The procedure is often fraught with challenges ranging from document review to time delays to questions as to the validity of the relationship.  You deserve to be united with your true love as soon as possible.  We will do everything we can to return your emails and calls as soon as possible.  Our immigration firm has assisted American citizens whose fiancées are all over the world waiting to enter the US.

 

LABOR CERTIFICATION (PERM)

Typically used for skilled laborers and immigrants with advanced degrees, the PERM process is a necessary part of acquiring a green card for thousands of immigrants annually.  We will outline and execute PERM cases for you, no matter what industry.  We know the ins and outs of carefully crafting job duties and responsibilities.  Recruitment and “ability to pay” issues are carefully reviewed in order to have the best results.

 

MARRIAGE BASED IMMIGRATION

The most common way to become a lawful resident, applying for residence through marrying a US citizen, is often misunderstood by people who think it is an “easy” way to get a green card.  Educate yourself by speaking to us today about the complex nature of this process and why hiring us may be the smartest move you make.  Do not go it alone.  Far too many couples call us after a bad experience on their own or with lawyers not thoroughly experienced in immigration law.
