Immigration

Simplifying the Obstacle to Maximize Success

With the regulatory landscape of immigration uncertain, securing nonimmigrant visas and permanent residence for foreign nationals is becoming more complex and challenging than ever before. Recognizing that immigration issues impact businesses and personal lives, we help our clients navigate the consular and immigration maze and vigorously advocate on their behalf.  By clearly understanding our clients’ business objectives at the outset, we work with employers to develop strategies that minimize delays and protect their global workforce.

Tarter Krinsky & Drogin’s Immigration Practice provides full immigration services to major multinational financial institutions, corporations, leading energy companies, and not-for-profit institutions, as well as high-level executives and entrepreneurs.

In contrast to larger firms, we offer the same depth of experience but with the benefit of more hands-on personal attention. We understand these matters are intricate, time-sensitive and personal, so we don’t waste anyone’s time or resources by overstaffing. Rather, we staff our matters with one senior attorney who is assisted by experienced paralegals.

We’ve been around the block a few times. Our deep technical experience with the most complicated applications and our understanding of the changing regulatory landscape gives us the ability to keep matters moving. We recognize that the transfer of senior executives directly impacts companies’ business goals and that working in tandem with our clients to develop innovative solutions is often the difference between a transfer happening smoothly or not at all. Our attorneys frequently interact with the United States Citizenship and Immigration Services, the U.S. Department of State consular posts and the U.S. Department of Labor.

Employment-based Immigrant Visas
Our work includes PERM labor certification applications, extraordinary ability petitions that allow employers to hire superior talent in the global marketplace, and the transfer of managers and executives in multinational corporations and banks.

Deeply familiar with its complex and stringent regulations, we have developed a niche focus on national visa waiver petitions and O-1 nonimmigrant visas for individuals who possess extraordinary ability in the sciences, arts, education, business, or athletics. We have worked with numerous multinational corporations to secure visas for their high-level executives, ensuring the seamless function of their operations.

Non-immigrant Visas
We help clients who are citizens of other countries obtain non-immigrant visas of all types, including work, investment, student, trainee, extraordinary ability and tourist visas.

Family-based Immigration
Many of our corporate clients are U.S. citizens and lawful permanent residents who seek our counsel because they want to sponsor family members from other countries for immigration benefits in the United States. These family members may include spouses, sons and daughters, and parents of U.S. citizens, and spouses and unmarried sons and daughters of permanent residents.

Citizenship
We provide assistance with all stages of citizenship applications as well as advice regarding renunciation of U.S. citizenship and permanent residence.
