Educating and assisting our clients in plotting a course toward lawful residence
America has long been known as a melting pot – a metaphor more appropriate than ever now that our immigration laws have become such a hot topic post-9/11.
For centuries, people have been migrating to and from the United States for personal and professional reasons. Today, shifting policies and stricter guidelines regulating the movement of people across borders have made navigating the immigration laws increasingly complex.
The Burns White Immigration Practice Group counsels clients on compliance issues, processes and files required paperwork, trains employers on better business practices and represents individuals before various boards and tribunals.
Our clients include individuals, families and businesses with diverse immigration issues such as employment visas, residential status, deportation, naturalization and asylum.
Corporations hiring non-U.S. citizens to work in the U.S., and process and obtain H-1B and H-3 visas.
Entrepreneurs and foreign investors who want to relocate to the U.S., and process and obtain their E-1 and E-2 visas.
Individuals wanting to become U.S. citizens.
Workers seeking temporary employment in the U.S.
U.S. citizens who have married non-U.S. citizens.
Students and visitors seeking temporary visas to study and travel in the U.S.
Individuals and families seeking asylum.
We also partner with members of our Firm’s Business Practices, White Collar Criminal Defense and Employment Practice Groups in an effort to provide our clients with a well-rounded solution to their specific needs.
