    Working with Rana is a treat. She is extremely knowledgeable and quickly demonstrates a great capacity to foresee the caveats. Finding the most efficient way to avoid them is probably what characterizes her most. Very highly recommended!

Assisting Employers and Individuals Seeking Visas that Authorize Lawful Employment in the United States 

Our attorneys understand the complex U.S. immigration laws and regulations, and have a proven record of success navigating the often drawn-out and difficult U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) process.

Our skilled attorneys help U.S. employers sponsor employees for temporary work authorization or U.S. lawful permanent residency.

At Klingner Jazayerli LLP, our attorneys help employers throughout the United States obtain the required visas to hire foreign national employees when necessary. Depending on the needs of the employer and the employee, the visas may be temporary business-based visas, or the employer may sponsor the employee for U.S. permanent residency. Our attorneys can also assist foreign nationals who qualify to self-sponsor for permanent resident status. 

Temporary Employment Visas

We draw on our immigration law experience to help employers trying to secure skilled workers from abroad and to help foreign nationals seeking to achieve their goals of working in the United States. We assist clients with nonimmigrant temporary employment visas such as these:

  • B1 Business visitor
  • E-1 treaty trader and E-2 treaty investor
  • H-1B specialty occupations
  • L-1A executive and managerial transferee visas
  • L-1B specialized knowledge
  • O-1 extraordinary ability in arts, education, business, sciences or athletics
  • P-1 athletes and group entertainers

We understand the complexities involved with hiring foreign workers and can assess your situation thoroughly to provide you with the guidance you need.

Permanent Employment-Based Immigrant Visas

U.S. immigration law provides foreign nationals with a variety of ways to become lawful permanent residents (get a Green Card) through employment in the United States. These employment-based (EB) “preference immigrant” categories including foreign nationals who are:

  • Persons with extraordinary ability in the sciences, arts, education, business, or athletics;
  • Outstanding professors and researchers; or
  • Certain multinational managers and executives.
  • Members of the professions holding advanced degrees or who have exceptional ability (including requests for national interest waivers). 
  • Skilled workers, professionals, or other workers.

Our attorneys regularly assist employers and individuals with permanent employment-based immigrant visa petitions and can advise you about your options and guide you through the entire process. 

Knowledgeable U.S. Immigration Law attorneys help U.S. Employers with I-9 compliance

Our immigration representation for employers is not limited to assisting with obtaining visas for employees. Even if your business has just one employee, you are required to comply with INA requirements on employment eligibility. The Department of Homeland Security (DHS) enforces U.S. laws addressing employment eligibility, employment verification and nondiscrimination. The consequences of an employer hiring unauthorized workers or failing to properly complete and retain an Employment Eligibility Verification Form, commonly known as a Form I-9, can include criminal charges and penalties.

We thoroughly examine acceptable forms of documentation, confirm your employees’ citizenship or eligibility to work in the United States and help you conduct self-audits of your I-9s each year to ensure they have been completed accurately. Our attorneys also provide you with personalized immigration counsel so you can take proactive measures against discrimination lawsuits arising from improperly handled I-9 forms under the Immigration Reform and Control Act of 1986 (IRCA).

Contact our diligent immigration lawyers for help with business-based visas and other immigration matters.
