About Immigration

Companies that wish to hire foreign employees often struggle with a complex array of immigration categories, which include unique requirements and involve numerous government agencies. Our group of immigration attorneys and paralegals assist corporate clients in sorting through alternative immigration strategies in order to attain and maintain lawful immigration status for employees and their families. We also provide advice concerning the employer’s and employee’s responsibilities under each immigration option, while preparing the necessary forms and gathering supporting documentation for submissions to the U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services, the Department of Labor, the State Department, and other appropriate government bodies.

Employment-based immigration often touches upon other areas of the law, such as tax, employee benefits, discrimination and labor law. The attorneys in each practice area work together to provide the client with high-quality advice from experienced attorneys in these and other areas.
