Immigration and Nationality Cases


Areas of Practice



We help U.S. employers through the process of obtaining authorization for foreign workers to provide temporary or permanent services.

Immigrant Visas

We specialize in assisting individuals immigrate to the U.S. as lawful permanent residents. This is done based on family relationships, vocational skills (via labor certification, extraordinary ability or national interest waiver petition, multinational manager or executive petition, or religious worker petition) or through investment and job creation.

Consular Liaison

We aid those seeking administrative review of a consular officer’s incorrect interpretation or misapplication of immigration law resulting in a denied visa application at U.S. consulates abroad.

Federal Litigation

We provide support by bringing federal court actions against U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services for failing to adjudicate a petition or application.

Cuban Adjustment Act

We provide assistance to individuals born outside of Cuba seeking U.S. lawful permanent residence under the Cuban Adjustment Act.


We provide assistance to U.S. citizens and lawful permanent residents seeking lawful permanent residence for their spouses, parents, children and siblings. We also help those seeking lawful permanent residence under the Violence Against Women Act.

Non Immigrant Visas

We help individuals obtain temporary permission to come to the U.S. as professionals and skilled workers, investors, traders, executives or managers, journalists, performers or athletes, fashion models, religious workers or trainees.
