Our Practice


Helping people navigate the U.S. immigration system since 2003

We represent companies and individuals in a wide variety of employment-based immigrant (permanent) and nonimmigrant (temporary) visa petitions and applications, as well as family-based petitions and naturalization/citizenship applications.  We handle all types of J-1 212(e) waiver applications, and other types of waivers.  We have successfully represented a broad spectrum of clients, including professional athletes, agents and coaches, artists, entertainers and musicians, fashion designers, physicians/nurses/physical therapists, journalists, university professors, scientists, researchers holding advanced degrees, and executives/entrepreneurs.
