What We Do
JMA offers a broad range of immigration services to guide both companies and individuals through the immigration landscape including nonimmigrant visas, permanent residency and naturalization services. Not only do we provide comprehensive and thorough services in the preparation and filing of immigration petitions, but we also counsel employers in immigration compliance matters, provide customized trainings, and advise on related matters.
Employment-Based Nonimmigrant Visas and Permanent Residency
Our robust employment-based immigration practice includes nonimmigrant petitions such as H-1B, L-1, O-1, E, TN, R-1 as well as employment-based permanent residency applications including PERM Labor Certifications, EB-1 Extraordinary Ability and Outstanding Researchers, National Interest Waivers, Multinational Executives and Managers, and Investors.
The lawyers at JMA serve a wide range of employers in a vast array of industries. Whether a multi-million dollar multinational corporation or a small startup, we apply the same care and creativity in developing solutions for our clients. Some representative industries include:
- Academic Institutions
- Information Technology
- Construction and Engineering
- Non-profit organizations
In addition, JMA regularly advises clients involved in mergers and acquisitions, divestitures and reorganization activities to efficiently address related immigration issues. We assist clients in performing due diligence investigations, which require a detailed analysis of the current immigration status of the employees, a determination of the impact of the corporate change on status, and the filing of applications necessary to maintain each employee’s status. After a thorough evaluation, we advise and assist the client in implementing any immigration strategies that may be necessary. JMA works to ensure that the employer and its employees are adequately protected from the potential consequences that the immigration laws may have in a changing corporate structure
Family-Based Permanent Residency and Naturalization
JMA attorneys regularly assist families in preparing immediate relative visa applications and permanent residency filings. We guide our clients through the complex processes involved in obtaining immigration benefits for family members such as K-1 fiancee visas, immigrant petitions and adjustment of status applications. The attorneys at JMA support clients in comprehensive analysis and preparation of naturalization applications.
