Overview

U.S. immigration laws involve a complex array of processes and procedures. Businesses and individuals that effectively manage these laws are better positioned to succeed in the global marketplace. Our immigration lawyers help clients successfully accomplish this task by monitoring the effects of the laws’ ever-changing details on clients and their plans, and keeping clients updated on what we are doing for them and why.

We realize that a stalled or denied case can result in lost time and money as well as separated families. Our approach is to eliminate every opportunity for questions from immigration authorities, thereby producing more predictable outcomes and faster, more favorable results.

Providing a Broad Range of Services

Our services include the following:

  • Helping foreign and U.S. enterprises qualify key technical, executive, managerial, and professional personnel, along with their family members, so these individuals can enter and remain in the United States on a temporary or permanent basis
  • Advising families seeking to have fiancés, spouses, parents and children enter and remain in the country
  • Updating business clients on legislative and administrative developments in U.S. immigration laws
  • Ensuring that businesses comply with U.S. immigration laws, including those designed to prevent employment of unauthorized aliens

Representing a Broad Range of Clients

Our business clients include everything from major multinational entities transferring employees around the world, to international travel and reservation entities, to small businesses hiring the best and brightest. These clients come from a variety of industries such as shipping, manufacturing, accounting and forestry.

Healthcare Immigration

We have considerable experience representing regional healthcare systems. We help them obtain employment authorization and permanent resident status for physicians, nurses and other critical personnel. Our services also include obtaining waivers of foreign residence requirements and employment in medically underserved areas.

Holding Down Legal Costs

Legal services for immigration matters can be costly. To improve efficiencies and control costs, we work in teams: one lawyer and one paralegal, with the paralegal gathering and preparing information needed by the lawyer. Most teams have worked together for many years, making them extraordinarily efficient and productive.

Representing Clients Before Government Agencies

Our attorneys regularly represent clients in matters before the U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services, the U.S. Department of State, U.S. diplomatic posts, the U.S. Department of Labor and state agencies to which the Department of Labor has delegated immigration-related responsibilities.
