Our Attorneys Help Secure Nonimmigrant Visas
Our lawyers represent those employers with foreign nationals entering the country for work
Each year hundreds of thousands of international visitors come to the United States as tourists, students, investors, trade partners or guest workers. These individuals do not intend to immigrate but can still face bureaucratic challenges. These challenges can be due to statutory limitations on the number of legal entrants from the individual’s home country or due to the amount of time they can legally stay in the United States. JMA Firm, PLLC assists businesses hoping to facilitate visa applications for nonimmigrant visitors to the United States. We are available to help clients secure numerous types of nonimmigrant visas, including:

F-1 OPT Visas allow students to extend their stay past graduation
The Optional Practical Training visa allows students who have completed their degree programs to stay in the United States to work in their fields for one year. We also assist F-1 OPT workers in extending their stays by petitioning for H1-B visas.
H-1B Visas allow professionals to work in the United States
One of the ways the United States tries to remain competitive in the global marketplace is by allowing talented professionals in specialty occupations to work here. Whether you are a recent graduate hoping to remain in the country, a domestic business looking to hire qualified foreign professionals, or a skilled foreign worker in a desired field of expertise, we can help with the documentation necessary to start the application and can guide through the entire process.
Assistance for foreign companies expanding into the U.S.
Visas are available that encourage foreign companies to open subsidiaries and branches in the United States, and foreign entrepreneurs to initiate start-ups. We can facilitate your efforts to relocate your valued foreign personnel as you establish your company within U.S. borders.
