What Visa is Right for You?

Get help obtaining both temporary and permanent work visas. Let us listen to your story, inform you of U.S. immigration laws, explain the process involved, and complete the applications needed to ensure your foreign employees are authorized to work in the U.S.

Permanent Work Visas

We’ll simplify the process for obtaining permanent residence status in all five visa categories. Each category is specific to the type of worker and includes the following:

  • EB-1 – Noncitizens of extraordinary ability, outstanding professors and researchers, and multinational managers or executives.
  • EB-2 – Those holding advanced degrees and foreign nationals with exceptional ability.
  • EB-3 – Skilled workers, professionals, and other types of workers.
  • EB-4 – Special immigrants like religious workers, broadcasters, and other types of workers.
  • EB-5 – Investors bringing capital to the United States that can apply for a Green Card.

Temporary Work Visas

Satisfy your temporary staffing needs with the following visa categories:

Legal Solutions For Your Business's Worksite Compliance

Get the workers you need and avoid losing employees or the imposition of penalties and fines due to worksite non-compliance issues after a government audit. Immigration attorneys prevent violations down the road and offer solutions to make your workplace compliant with US immigration laws.

Employee Visas Post Mergers & Acquisitions

Without proper guidance during a merger or acquisition, employers might not consider how an employee’s immigration status might have changed during a transaction. Oversights could result in the loss of skilled workers and potential violations.

A business immigration lawyer can assess your new merger to discover your immigration needs and develop the best course of action. They will also inform you of the issues related to corporate restructuring and the consequences that may follow.

LCA / Public Access File Compliance

A “public access file” must be retained for each employee in H-1B status. Employers need to set up the public access file for the candidate, and they must retain a copy of the required records for one year starting on the last day that any H-1B visa holder is employed.

A work visa attorney ensures that public access files are filed correctly and helps you avoid Department of Labor investigations, civil and administrative penalties, payment of back wages, and disbarment from key immigration programs.

Help with E-Verify

E-Verify is a free, Internet-based program operated by the U.S. federal government. The program compares an employee’s Form I-9 to U.S. government records. If the information matches, that employee can work in the United States.

If there’s a difference, E-Verify alerts the employer, and the employee is allowed to work while they resolve the problem within eight days. The E-Verify program is voluntary for employers; however, enrollment is mandatory under certain circumstances. An experienced business immigration lawyer helps you avoid costly mistakes and guides you through the process.

I-9 Immigration Compliance

All U.S. employers must complete an I-9 form every time they hire a new employee, regardless of whether the new hire is a citizen or non-citizen. Likewise, all employees must complete an I-9 form. This form verifies the identity and authorization of employees. An attorney informs you of your legal obligations and ensures you complete your form correctly.

ICE IMAGE Program Compliance

The Mutual Agreement between Government and Employers (IMAGE) program was established to keep undocumented noncitizens from unlawfully acquiring jobs in the United States. This program educates employers on proper hiring procedures to prevent unauthorized employment. We’ll inform you of the many requirements for those seeking certification in IMAGE and make sure you know what to expect.
