Employment Sponsorship

Employment based sponsorship for lawful permanent residence is ruled by some of the most complex and challenging of all immigration regulations. In addition to the highly complicated rules and regulations, extensive backlogs and government delays mean that even small mistakes can have devastating ramifications on a foreign worker’s future in the U.S.

Our firm has an excellent track record of providing in-depth analysis, planning and supervision for all kinds of employer-sponsored Green Card applications. We keep up-to-date with changes in the legal environment so that our client’s cases have the best opportunity for success. We specialize in working with employers to ensure that Green Card programs are fast, legally strong and cost effective.

In addition to assisting sponsoring companies, we have extensive experience consulting with individuals about how employment and educational choices affect future green card processing.

Family Sponsorship

Our firm has extensive experience providing comprehensive service for individuals seeking to sponsor their family members for Lawful Permanent Residence. We are intimately familiar with all manner of family based processes both with USCIS and at various Consulates world-wide. We have the knowledge to experience to successfully structure these cases and answer complex questions to guide our clients toward the best possible outcome.

We pride ourselves in our ability to understand the complexities of family sponsorship and work hard to bring families together and help clients establish their lives in the U.S. quickly and successfully.


Gaining Lawful Permanent Residence through investment is a complex enterprise. Commonly known as “the million dollar green card”, EB-5 Immigrant Investor Visa was established in 1990 to stimulate the U.S. economy through job creation and capital investment. To date it remains one of the most underutilized and elusive of all immigrant visa classifications.

Our firm can help guide Entrepreneurs and Investors through the complex EB-5 process and answer the questions you must know before starting your business in the U.S.

Diversity Visa Lottery

The Diversity Immigrant Visa Program (commonly known as the Diversity Lottery) creates 50,000 new Immigrant Visas annually and allows Foreign Nationals from countries with low rates of immigration to apply for their green card either from abroad or from within the U.S. The disbursement of the visas is based on a randomized lottery held at a specific time each year.

In most cases, individuals apply for the Diversity Lottery independently and then, if they are selected, work with an immigration lawyer to complete the necessary paperwork and green card application. Our firm has the knowledge to effectively assist winners of the Diversity Lottery to ensure their filings are accurate and successful.
