Immigration, Nationality and Consular Law

Our comprehensive U.S. immigration and visa services include preparation of all temporary and employment visa petitions (K, F, J, H, Q, L, O, P, R, and E), applications that may lead to permanent residence (EB, marriage, labor certifications -PERM-, national interest waivers). Our attorneys are members of America Immigration Lawyers Association, (AILA), and are strong advocates for immigration reform. In limited circumstances we also represent our clients in removal or deportation proceedings, claims for political Asylum, and complex adjustment of status issues.
