Employment-based Immigration

Our firm’s immigration practice includes:

  • Obtaining Temporary Business-Related Work Visas

    We are most active in the preparation and filing of non-immigrant worker petitions with the Immigration and Naturalization Service. We provide this service to clients interested in the employ of a foreign national in an executive, managerial or otherwise professional capacity.

  • Obtaining Employment-Based Permanent Residence Petitions

    Many clients wish to retain their foreign skilled workers on a permanent basis. Our group assists clients in preparing and conducting labor certification processes with the United States Departments of Labor and in obtaining approval of employment based immigrant visas with the United States Immigration and Naturalization Service.

  • Assisting Clients in Complying With Immigration Reform Control Act and Other Immigration Laws

    We assist clients in complying with the United States immigration laws that regulate entry to the United States and employment of foreign nationals.

Our firm also processes visa petitions, extensions of stay and adjustment of status petitions, among others, for business visitors, students in practical training or exchange, athletes, artists and family dependents of executives and other professional clients.

IRCA and I-9 Compliance for U.S. Employers The immigration laws make it illegal to employ foreign nationals who lack INS permission to work in the United States. With very limited exceptions, employers are required to verify that all employees (even U.S. citizens) are authorized to work in the country by timely completing and maintaining Forms I-9. Penalties may be imposed against employers for knowingly hiring and continuing to employ an unauthorized worker, and/or for failing to complete and/or maintain the required documentation.
