Claimed Lawyer Profile
Biography

I am the founder and owner of the Law Office of Sidney Collier, PLC, and have over 15 years of experience working exclusively in the area of U.S. immigration and nationality law.

I work on both employment-based and family immigration matters. I have successfully assisted clients with H, L, and O temporary visas, and permanent residence matters including Extraordinary Ability, Outstanding Researcher, Multinational Executive/Manager, and PERM labor certification cases. I have also worked with employers on I-9 and H-1B compliance issues. I have proudly worked with all types of businesses, from small start-ups to large, multinational corporations, and worked with clients in the hospitality, international business, scientific research, engineering, technology, accounting and marketing sectors, and college and university settings, among others. I also assist clients with all facets of family-based matters including marriage-based petitions, and naturalization cases.

I enjoy the challenge of staying informed about the rapidly evolving immigration laws and procedures, so I can best advise my clients, and eliminate guesswork from immigration filings.

Prior to moving to Vermont, I worked in high-volume law firms in both Washington, D.C. and Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. I attended the American University’s Washington College of Law in Washington, D.C. (cum laude) and The George Washington University in Washington, D.C., where I majored in International Affairs, with a concentration in Latin America and a minor in Spanish.

I am a member of the American Immigration Lawyers Association, the International Medical Graduate Taskforce, the Vermont Bar Association, and the Washington County Bar Association. I currently hold the positions of Secretary of the Washington County Bar Association, and Chair of the Immigration Law Section of the Vermont Bar Association. I am admitted and authorized to practice law in Vermont and before federal agencies only.
