Leech Tishman’s Immigration attorneys provide in-depth knowledge of the technical and dynamic landscape of immigration laws and regulations.
The United States immigration system is complicated and constantly in flux; therefore, you need trustworthy lawyers who can keep up with the changes and can deliver results. Leech Tishman’s Immigration Practice Group provides comprehensive legal services to our ever-growing clientele. We represent businesses, as well as individuals, undergoing the U.S. immigration process throughout the United States or around the world. Our goal is to assist clients across international borders while remaining cognizant of controlling costs and achieving legal compliance.
Our immigration attorneys regularly represent businesses, organizations, and individuals in a variety of immigration legal matters related to employment-based and family-based immigration. With regulatory compliance as an utmost priority, our lawyers are skilled in providing immigration help to individuals and businesses navigating through the minefield of immigration laws.
Our nationally-recognized immigration lawyers assist with all types of non-immigrant and immigrant visas, including work and extraordinary ability visas (for professionals in all fields, business executives/managers, investors, scientists, IT and computer scientists/engineers, athletes, actors, artists, entertainers, among others); family petitions; labor certifications; asylum applications; green cards through investment, business or citizenship; as well as employer sanctions and related business immigration matters. We also counsel foreign nationals accused of crimes in the United States to assess the potential immigration consequences of any conviction. Our immigration attorneys are also members of the American Immigration Lawyers Association.
We have developed the expertise necessary to effectively represent clients before state, federal, governmental, and administrative agencies, such as the U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services, U.S. Department of Justice, U.S. Department of State, U.S. Department of Labor, U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement, and within the federal court system.
Our Immigration Practice Group regularly utilizes the skills of the firm’s other practice groups, and in particular, our Government Relations, Corporate, and Employment teams, to ensure that your business competes in a global economy.
Our firm is positioned to offer high-quality representation and address any potential legal issues before they become roadblocks to the successful completion of visa petitions and applications.
