PRACTICE AREAS

TEMPORARY WORKER VISA
Temporary worker visas are for persons who want to enter the United States for employment lasting a fixed period of time, and are not considered permanent or indefinite. Each of these visas requires the prospective employer to first file a petition with U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS). An approved petition is required to apply for a work visa.
 
  • Performing Artist, Athlete, Entertainer (P-1, P-2, P-3)
  • Individual with Extraordinary Ability or Achievement (O-1)
  • Intracompany Transferee (L-1)
  • Person in Specialty Occupation (H-1B)

VISITOR VISA (B-1/B-2)

 

Visitor visas are nonimmigrant visas for persons who want to enter the United States temporarily for business  (B-1), for tourism (B-2), or for a combination of both purposes (B-1/B-2).

TREATY TRADER & INVESTOR VISA
 
Treaty Trader (E-1) and Treaty Investor (E-2) visas are for citizens of countries with which the United States maintains treaties of commerce and navigation. You must be coming to the United States to:

  • Engage in substantial trade, including trade in services or technology, in qualifying activities, principally between the United States and the treaty country (E-1); or

  • Develop and direct the operations of an enterprise in which you have invested a substantial amount of capital   (E-2).

K-1 (Fiancé) VISA
The fiancé(e) K-1 visa is for the foreign-citizen fiancé(e) of a U.S. citizen. The K-1 visa permits the foreign-citizen fiancé(e) to travel to the United States and marry his or her U.S. citizen sponsor within 90 days of arrival. The foreign-citizen will then apply for adjustment of status to a permanent resident (LPR) with the  U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services. Eligible children of K-1 visa applicants receive K-2 visas.

 OUR SERVICES

FULL LEGAL REPRESENTATION

U.S. immigration law is constantly changing and any minor error or oversight in the application process can result in severe consequences. Therefore, we recommend that you obtain the services of an immigration attorney who can guide you through the steps from start to finish.
 
Whether you are interested in applying for U.S. citizenship, employment-based or family-based green cards, temporary work visas, student visas, visitor visas, etc., our firm can assist you from initial consultation to the filing of the application. 
*If you decide to retain our firm for full legal representation, the initial consultation fee will be credited towards your legal fee.
As one of our firm's mission is to make immigration legal assistance accessible to everyone, we will work with you to provide a flexible payment plan. Contact us now for a consultation. 

FLEXIBLE UNBUNDLED LEGAL SERVICES

(Limited Scope Representation)

  • CONSULTATION SERVICES   

Are you thinking of proceeding on with a specific immigration matter, but unclear as to how you should proceed or have initial questions that you would like to discuss with an immigration attorney? Our consultation service might be the perfect fit for you.  

 

Our consultation service is not only available for those who are interested in a full representation service. For those who are not yet ready to commit to a full representation, have specific immigration related questions, or who are not in the financial position to commit to a lump sum retainer fee upfront, our consultation service will allow you to speak to an attorney without any added costs or commitments.

  • DOCUMENT REVIEW 

Due to the complex nature of immigration law, we always recommend that you try to obtain full legal representation from an experienced attorney. However, we recognize the significant cost involved in obtaining full representation services, and that it is not financially feasible for some of our clients.   

 

In instances where an individual has a simple, straightforward case (e.g. standard green card renewal application or naturalization application with no history of criminal background, etc.), it might be more cost efficient for the individual to handle some of the preparation process. For example, if you have already filled out the necessary application forms and would like an immigration attorney to perform a final review of the forms/supporting documentation prior to submission, we offer an affordable flat fee rate depending on the specific type of application.  

  • FORMS PREPARATION

Depending on your specific circumstance, our firm can assist you in preparing the application forms in a limited scope capacity. If you do not have the time to fill out complex USCIS forms, not familiar with terms such as the Alien Registration Number, and unclear as to which boxes to check, we may be able to assist you. Contact us now to discuss possible options specifically tailored to you.

 

 

  • DOCUMENT TRANSLATIONS (KOREAN/ENGLISH) 

Our firm is able to provide translations for Korean documents that needs to be submitted to USCIS or the appropriate U.S. Embassy or Consulate. Such documents may include birth certificates, marriage certificates, lease documents, police certificates, or certificate of income. Please contact our office for specific rates.   

*Further limited scope representation may include Interview Preparation Assistance or Legal Research/Strategy. We can customize a solution that specifically meets your needs!

 

The successful outcome of your case is our number one priority. Please note that if the attorney determines that it is not in your best interest to receive unbundled legal representation, you will be advised during the initial consultation.
