Business Immigration

Business Immigration

Department of Homeland Security and the Department of Labor apply stringent regulations when it comes to allowing a United States (US) company to hire workers using non-immigrant or immigrant visas. Unfortunately, these regulations are complicated; this is one reason why many business owners and human resource departments turn to a business immigration attorney to help them navigate the system.

“Our attitude toward immigration reflects our faith in the American ideal.  We have always believed it possible for men and women who start at the bottom to rise as far as their talent and energy allow.  Neither race nor place of birth should affect their chances.”
