The United States holds many opportunities for foreigners who wish to obtain employment within the country. Employment immigration law, however, is complex. There are many different ways to obtain employment as a non-citizen and it is important that you apply for the right type of employment visa so you give yourself the best chance of securing the work visa you need. A Cook County immigration attorney can help you navigate the process and give you the best chance of working in the United States.
If you intend to immigrate to the United States so that you can permanently live and work in the country, you must apply to become a legal permanent resident through an employer. While not all employees entering the country for work must be sponsored by an employer, this is a requirement for most. These work visas are limited with only a certain amount being issued each year. To qualify for these types of work visas, you must meet the requirements within that category.
Although the number of these visas is limited, you can check the Department of State’s website to determine how many are currently available.
Sometimes people wish to work in the United States, but they do not want to remain permanently in the country. These individuals still need a work visa, although these differ from those for intending immigrants.
An attorney can advise on which type of visa is most applicable to your specific situation.

Best super lawyers in Chicagoland.
Kriezelman Burton is a great firm, and Erin C. Cobb is an excellent lawyer. They were very professional and knowledgeable about the immigration process. They helped me every step of the way and made sure I understood everything that was happening. Erin always was transparent and gave me great advice to move my case forward. She turned things upside down and found simple yet difficult-to-see solutions to gain the edge and win my case. I would definitely recommend them to anyone looking for the best legal representation.
They are a great firm, I worked with Kevin Raica and his team. It was a pleasure working with them. They were great, and Kevin is an excellent and very organized lawyer. His expertise and knowledge helped with my process. I highly recommend him !!!!!!!!!!
Excellent lawyers. Me and my family enjoyed the experience.
