This case work involves us with investors, business executives and managers, technical and professional individuals. Our broad experience has allowed us to develop substantial expertise in all aspects of the immigration practice.


We evaluate, prepare and file applications and petitions for temporary (nonimmigrant) and permanent (immigrant) employment in the United States as well as all family-related immigrant petitions, removal proceedings, citizenship and naturalization matters.

Fees are fixed based on the specific visa classification sought. The fees reflect the complexity of individual matters as well as the projected volume of matters we are assigned. We accept cash, check, credit card or wire transfer payments.
