Our firm represents individuals, entrepreneurs, professionals, investors, athletes, religious workers and other foreign nationals in all immigration matters. We handle all visa categories. Our goal is to successfully assist clients in navigating the complex immigration laws to obtain temporary visas or permanent residence in the United States.  We analyze each case in order to assess which non-immigrant visa or immigrant petition type is most appropriate.  

Non-immigrant visas

Our firm assists foreign nationals, as well as companies, and their employees in securing non-immigrant visas in the United States.  Non-immigrant visas are temporary visas. They allow foreign nationals to reside and work in the United States.  Eligibility criteria vary on the visa type. We also provide assistance with the consular interview process once the foreign national has secured an Approval Notice from USCIS.

Most common visa categories include:

  • B-1 business visa/After Sales Contract employee
  • B-1/B-2 Visitor visas
  • B-1 Domestic workers
