JW Practice Group provides individualized and specialized legal services in major areas of US immigration and nationality laws.

    All countries impose restrictions on the ability of foreign nationals to enter, live, and work in their territories, as well as on foreign businesses that plan to set up business operations within their national borders. As a result, all countries will exact penalties on those individuals or businesses who violate those restrictions. When individuals want to travel to another country for any reason, and when businesses plan to set up business operations in a foreign country, or send their employees to that country to conduct business, they will have to deal with those restrictions. As immigration attorneys practicing immigration and nationality laws of the United States, we have the passion, knowledge and ability to help those foreign nationals, their US employers and families, and those foreign businesses navigate the complex restrictions codified in statutes, regulations, court decisions and policy pronouncements from various government agencies. 

    US Immigration law can be roughly divided into two basic areas: Employment-based and Family-based immigration processes. Employment-based or business immigration is the process by which foreign nationals obtain temporary or permanent visas in order to work and live in the United States based on job offers from US employers or foreign employers doing business in the United States, or the foreign nationals’ professional accomplishments, or their investment in the United States. Meanwhile, family-based immigration is the process by which individuals obtain lawful permanent residence in the United States based on the right family relationships with individuals who are US lawful permanent residents or US citizens.
