U.S. immigration law allows foreign-born workers to come and work in the United States, but only after they and their employer have complied with strict legal requirements. If successful, the prospective foreign worker is issued with either a temporary work visa or an immigrant visa based on their prospective employment. However, many who apply for this type of work visa or migrant visa are denied. At Kriezelman Burton & Associates LLC, our Chicago employment immigration attorneys help clients to successfully apply and obtain these difficult-to-obtain visas. We also take cases in Indiana, Wisconsin, and Michigan.
Our law firm has experienced attorneys who work with employers to meet their legal immigration needs, especially in helping these companies that have foreign-born workers to obtain authorization to work in the United States. These employers know they can count on our years of experience handling a variety of immigration cases, including some of the most complex ones related to employment-based immigration or visas.
