Practice Areas


Our Immigration Law Practice 

We represent clients in the following areas of immigration law:

Employment-Based Immigration 

Our employment-based immigration practice includes obtaining nonimmigrant and immigrant visas and green cards for professionals, including: 

Work Visas: H-1B, TN, L-1A, L-1B, E-3, O and P visas, and E-2 investor visas.

Green Card Petitions

• Professional/skilled workers 

• Advanced degree professionals 

• Investors 

• Multinational managers 

• Outstanding researchers and professors 

• Extraordinary ability immigrants (including artists, researchers and scientists)

We also handle nonimmigrant temporary visas related to business travel, including B-1 (business visitor) and B-2 (tourist) visas.  

National Interest Waivers 

A large part of our employment-based immigration practice includes helping individuals with unique skills obtain U.S. green cards through national interest waivers.  

The national interest waiver is a visa category that allows "advanced degree professionals" or "aliens of exceptional ability" to receive green cards without going through the sometimes-burdensome labor certification process and without needing employer sponsorship. 

We have successfully helped many clients obtain their green cards through the national interest waiver category.  

Family-Based Immigration 

Our family-based immigration practice includes helping reunite families through: 

• Fiancé(e) visas

• Marriage visas 

• Relative visas 

• Green cards 

• Family-based petitions 

• I-751 petitions 

We also assist clients with naturalization and citizenship applications, extensions of stay for nonimmigrant workers and adjustment from one nonimmigrant category to another.

 If you need help with renewal of employment authorization documents or advance parole documents, we can offer assistance with preparation.
