Private Practice
- Current
We represent employers in obtaining immigrant and non-immigrant work visas, individuals in obtaining family visas for relatives abroad, and foreign students and trainees in seeking visas to pursue their respective endeavors in the United States. We have been extremely successful in immigration litigation involving adjudication of delayed naturalization and adjustment of status applications in federal courts. In addition, we work closely with foreign nationals facing criminal convictions, to minimize the negative impact of criminal violations on their immigration history. We also represent foreign nationals in the areas of federal income, gift and international taxation at all levels of the Internal Revenue Service review and in the United States Tax Court.
