Family Immigration

Competent and compassionate handling of family immigration matters is an important part of successfully reuniting families separated by national borders.  With a comprehensive understanding of the law and our clients’ personal situations, we strive to alleviate the stress and worry that can arise when trying to bring a loved one to the United States.  Our guidance throughout the immigration process includes mitigating obstacles to a successful outcome and keeping our clients advised of developments in their application process.  Our family immigration services include:

I-9 Compliance

The Employment Eligibility Verification form, commonly known as I-9, is more complex than in may appear on its face.  All persons newly-hired by the employer, even for one day, must undergo I-9 verification. Mistakes in document verification and other compliance failures can result in significant fines or even allegations of discrimination.  Our attorneys help businesses to achieve and maintain effective I-9 compliance through the development of programs designed to meet verification and record keeping requirements.
