Our California Bay Area immigration attorneys have one compelling mission: to assist employers and immigrants in obtaining their immigration goals. We have dedicated our careers to developing and maintaining expertise in immigration law and know how to assist immigrants to obtain legal status as they contribute to our nation’s diverse economy.
From our offices in the Santa Clara-San Francisco area, we have a national practice that primarily focuses on assisting Northern California businesses and individuals with business immigration issues and family immigration matters. We are able to help you think about various solutions which will enable you to achieve your immigration objectives. For example, as an employer you might not realize how a particular aspect of the applicant’s education could account for unique qualifications for a particular job. As an immigrant, you may overlook a factor that will allow you to get your green card quicker. We will help you discover and put to use all factors in your favor.
With the aim of helping you meet your U.S. immigration needs, we apply ourselves to the pursuit of excellence both individually and collectively as a dynamic, mid-sized firm.
