Skilled Employment Immigration Legal Representation
Legal immigration is a critical component of the United States workforce. Experienced, adept workers coming into the United States. bring new ideas and skills with them, allowing companies to build up businesses using their essential services. Despite how necessary or crucial an immigrant employee may be to their employer, earning permanent residency through seeking asylum or getting a green card application may not be the best option to gain the legal immigration status an employee needs. The employment-based immigration process can offer employees the immigrant visa they are looking for, but they are not easy to earn.

Comprehensive Visa Assistance
The U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) of the Department of Homeland Security offers many different work visas for US immigration. More than a dozen types of visas relate to lawful employment, and not all of them work for each employee’s needs. We take the time to understand what your unique needs are in your case before filing for the specific visa that relates to your situation. We can assist you with visa applications like:
- H1B – visas specifically for professionals or academics looking to immigrate that have a college degree

- L1 visa – a visa granting an employer the ability to transfer an executive from a foreign office to a local one
- O – visas designed for people with exceptional skill in the arts, sciences, business, or athletics
- TN (Trade NAFTA) – The North American Free Trade Agreement visas allow highly skilled workers with Canadian or Mexican nationality
- I-140 – a petition to help someone classified as an alien as qualified for an employment-based visa
Knowing what kinds of visas are available and how they may apply to a certain situation is not all we do for our clients. We proudly assist our clients through every obstacle in their path to securing the outcome they deserve in their employment-based immigration application.
Whether you need a visa as a qualified or specialist worker, or you need help with extension petitions, requests for more evidence, labor certification, change of employers, or because of a business merger or acquisition, we can help. When an application is denied, we can also help with your immigration appeals, appearing before the Board of Immigration Appeals during the process. Our knowledge of every aspect of immigration law enables us to take on the most challenging cases in the immigration law system.
Avoid The Consequences Of Not Getting A Visa
When an employee does not have legal authorization to work in the United States, both the employer and the employee can face serious consequences. Employers can incur penalties, including severe fines ranging from several hundred to several thousand dollars per undocumented employee, based on the number of previous offenses the employer has. If the business has a history of prior similar transgressions, the employer can face harboring charges, with a conviction resulting in up to 10 years in prison.
Employees who work without a valid employment-based visa risk initiating removal proceedings for deportation and temporary or permanent barring from the United States, denying any opportunity for reentry. This may also apply to people who come here on a visitor visa and then begin working. Being prohibited from reentering the United States can keep an employee from career advancement opportunities, and may also keep them from their US-based family.
