Immigration bureaucracy and the national interest
Employment-based immigration is meant to benefit the immigrant, the employer and U.S. interests. U.S. policy attempts to balance the competing needs of attracting essential workers and ensuring that qualified U.S. workers are not disadvantaged. The hopeful immigrant must craft a petition with that understanding. Our experienced attorney understand how the immigration bureaucracy works and what elements are essential to a successful petition.
Defense against violations
Penalties for violating immigration laws are severe, including heavy fines for employers and lifetime bans from entering the United States for immigrants convicted of misrepresenting material facts. Our skilled attorney know what is necessary to mount a successful defense, and will defend you vigorously against such charges.
