U.S. immigration law allows foreign workers to come and work in the United States for an American employer – but only if both the employer and the prospective employee meet certain requirements. Obtaining these work visas is no walk in the park, and many who apply are, in fact, routinely denied the visas for various reasons. At Kriezelman Burton & Associates LLC, we help clients in the Chicago area to successfully apply and obtain these hard-to-obtain visas. We also take cases in Indiana, Wisconsin, and Michigan.
We have experienced employment immigration attorneys who can work with you to navigate the complex immigration system and meet your employment immigration needs. We routinely handle these types of cases and know the ins and outs of navigating this often frustrating system for those unfamiliar with how it works. It is not just what the law says or what the regulations are, as even those are often not applied uniformly, and policies are always changing. Rather, it is knowing how to best present an approvable case, and that usually turns on one’s experience in handling similar cases – and that is what we bring to the table.
Indeed, our employment immigration clients know they can count on our years of experience successfully handling employment-based immigration matters, including work visas, and you can count on us as well.

These types of work visas are usually sought and obtained by professional workers, especially those in information technology, the entertainment industry, and medical fields.
The types of visas available in this non-immigrant category are many, but the most common are:
