Who We Are
We are your partners in immigration, helping businesses, individuals and families with their immigration needs.

Business
As part of our service in processing business immigration cases:

We develop an immigration plan for each employee, consistent with company goals, to guide them from nonimmigrant status to green card status, and US citizenship if desired. We look at matters in connection with the company, while making sure to keep the employee’s long term goals in mind.

We track each visa and let Human Resources know when new action is required to preserve an employee’s work status and what those steps entail. We monitor immediate family immigration consequences, and watch out for children who may be aging out, spouses who might be lapsing out of valid employment status, and work to prevent these from becoming an HR burden, or resulting in an employee having to depart the USA to maintain family unity.

International travel can often trigger immigration complications, and requires expert knowledge of US consulate procedures all over the world to ensure that employees do not get stuck overseas. We don’t just get the visa approval from USCIS and then forget about the case; we coordinate your employee’s visa processing abroad and work with you to ensure that international business travel does not compromise your employee’s status in the USA.

We regularly update our clients on important changes in U.S. immigration laws, Department of Labor requirements and political developments that may impact their workforce. We assist our clients in a wide range of immigration matters, including:

  • Health care and medical immigration
  • Business and employment-based immigration, including start-up businesses
  • Marital and family immigration
  • Employer compliance, including I-9 training, auditing, and consulting services
  • Naturalization

As an added service to our clients, we work seamlessly with the firm’s other practice areas including Employment and Labor, Health Care and Business, to provide clients with a unique understanding of the impact that immigration has on their business.

Together with our dedicated health care attorneys, we represent health care systems, hospitals, and medical professionals.
