Immigration Practice

The Immigration Practice Group at Jones Waldo can handle all of your business and employment-related immigration matters. We are well-versed in obtaining the necessary immigration approvals for specialized temporary employees, such as those qualifying for H-1B, TN, E, O, J or L visas. We also regularly obtain immigrant worker (I-140) approvals, and U.S. permanent residency (I-485), both through the Labor Certification process (“PERM”) and otherwise.

We regularly represent clients in the fields of Information Technology, Software Development, Software Consulting, Data Sciences, Banking, Financial Services, Genetics, Architecture, Engineering, Mining, Manufacturing, and Aquaculture.

We also advise and assist company managers and Human Resources personnel on immigration-employment related issues, including I-9 requirements and audits, F-1 students (including CPT, OPT & STEM extensions), unauthorized employment, national origin discrimination, E-verify, joint employment issues (contractors), merger and acquisitions, tax issues, employment verification, and consular visa applications.

We are active members of the American Immigration Lawyers Association and can provide updates on the latest developments and issues in the ever-changing landscape of U.S. Immigration law.

Finally, we are also experienced in litigation immigration appeals in the U.S. District Court under the federal Administrative Procedures Act, including H-1B denials.
