Case Studies

Immigration law is nuanced. It can be complicated and bureaucratic. For our clients – visa and immigrant petitions are at once high-stakes and really boring – involving thousands of pages of applications and documentation in a process that is designed to ensure safety and security, and all too often entails red-tape and high levels of scrutiny.

But as immigration attorneys, we get to see the good news that happens every day. We know our country was built on immigration, and we get to be a part of the process for people who want to work here, live here, and plant their roots. We help our clients build their future, and in turn, the future of our great country.

These immigration law case studies show the stories behind the petitions. They show the human side of immigration – whether it is a physician from Peru practicing medicine in rural Maine or an Australian higher education innovator reshaping the landscape for people pursuing an international MBA, from U.S. headquarters in California. We hope business and institutional leaders will see their own missions in these stories. We hope those who aspire to live and work see themselves, and find hope and inspiration. We are thankful to have been part of these stories, and would be honored to be part of yours.
