Skilled lawyers provide detailed guidance during USCIS proceedings
Any non-U.S. citizen who hopes to live or work in the United States needs to obtain a temporary work visa or lawful permanent resident status (green card) from the U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS). Though there are USCIS offices throughout the United States, it is smart to work with a D.C. legal team if you plan to live, work or conduct business in this area.
The USCIS offers immigrant visas and nonimmigrant visas. An immigrant visa allows the recipient to receive a green card and live in the United States permanently, while a nonimmigrant visa allows the recipient to be in the United States temporarily and only for a specifically designated reason.
Our firm prepares a full range of immigrant and nonimmigrant visa applications, including requests related to:
- Family reunification — A person who obtains citizenship or lawful permanent residence in the United States can sponsor an immigrant visa application of a closely related family member. There are two categories of family immigration visas: Immediate Relative Visas and Family Preference Visas. The sponsor’s legal status and relationship to the beneficiary determine the type of visa that may be available.
- Business and employment needs — Whether you are a business owner looking to hire an executive, specialty worker or unskilled employee, we can guide you through the steps you need to take to hire the best talent. Experienced in a wide range of business immigration matters, our attorneys also represent investors and individuals petitioning for employment-related visas.
Failure to secure the appropriate legal status can result in deportation. Businesses that violate the U.S. visa laws set forth within the Immigration and Nationality Act and other regulations may face severe penalties. With more than 75 years of combined experience, our immigration lawyers help clients petition for visas efficiently while abiding by the law.
Knowledgeable counselors file appeals and respond to requests for evidence
The USCIS has broad powers when it comes to approving or denying visa applications, and immigration officers follow strict evidentiary requirements. A small mistake on an application or failure to provide appropriate documents relating to visa eligibility can result in a lengthy case delay, application denial and eventual deportation.
Having handled hundreds of visa and green card petitions, our lawyers know how to build strong cases and prevent the mistakes that occur when people try to deal with the USCIS on their own. We understand the current U.S. immigration laws and are committed to providing clear and thorough answers to any questions our clients may have. If the USCIS challenges your visa eligibility, our attorneys will work diligently to assert your rights and qualifications.
