Immigration Law

Helping Businesses and Individuals with Immigration Law Issues

In an increasingly global market, U.S. employers recruit talented individuals for their specialized human resources needs from all over the world. Securing the services of such talent requires navigation of the complex and convoluted Federal Immigration law structure. Even employers who are not directly recruiting and sponsoring foreign-born employees are still affected by Federal Immigration laws through mandatory employment verification programs. Whether our clients need assistance in securing the services of international employee talent or in assuring compliance with hiring requirements applicable to all employers, we are fully equipped to assist employers in navigating the complex U.S. immigration laws.
