Summary

I provide immigration solutions to corporate clients including foreign investors, domestic businesses hiring foreign workers, and multinational companies transferring foreign employees to the United States. I also represent individual executives, professionals, researchers, scientists and artists regarding their specific immigration-related needs. My practice comprises all aspects of nonimmigrant visas, permanent residence, citizenship and worksite enforcement, including Form I-9, Employment Eligibility Verification, and E-Verify compliance.

I try to anticipate my clients’ needs by making every effort to consider cost, timing and longer-term issues at stake, as immigration decisions can have a reverberating impact even decades into the future. By understanding what is important to each client I serve, I provide customized solutions specific to their business objectives.

My clients span a wide range of industries, such as information technology, manufacturing, transportation and warehousing, financial services, healthcare, retail, mining, education, technical services and the arts. I truly enjoy serving clients from around the globe — getting to know them, understanding their experiences, and finding practical ways to overcome their challenges. If you have a question about how I help your business meet your immigration needs, please contact me at 847-734-8811 or econtreras@masudafunai.com.
