Employment-Based Immigration

USA Work Visa Lawyer – Los Angeles, CA: 714-533-6000

Certified by the State of California as a “Specialist in Immigration”

Representing individuals and employers throughout California seeking to secure work visas

The worldwide competition for skilled foreign labor has increased dramatically alongside new, more stringent immigration guidelines instituted by the Department of Homeland Defense in the wake of the 9/11 terrorist attacks. Combined with the new “PERM” Labor Certification program begun in 2005, the application process for temporary or permanent employment visas has become convoluted and fraught with potentially costly errors. The assistance of an experienced California employment Immigration attorney from Louis M. Piscopo can ensure that work visas and permissions are obtained legally and that processing occurs in a timely, cost-effective manner.

Our firm provides legal advice and representation on all issues related to working and residing inside the United States, including

  • H1B visas and extension and change of status and H-4 visas for family members
  • PERM Labor Certification Applications and I-140 petitions
  • RN & Physical Therapist petitions (Schedule A occupations)
  • E (Treaty Trader/Treaty Investor) Visas
  • L (Intra-Company Transfer) Visas
  • Investment and Investor Green Card Visas

Our lawyers can also assist workers with permanent residency with family immigration issues, including the reuniting of family members from overseas and the issuance of green cards and naturalization applications.

PERM Certification

The new “PERM” Labor Certification is the first major change to foreign labor certification in over three decades, a program begun in 2005 designed to make the certification process more efficient for employment-based immigration. The program is however, complex and untested, requiring the assistance of an experienced attorney from Louis M. Piscopo who will ensure that cases are filed correctly within the new PERM system and that any delays are addressed and resolved quickly prior to a potential loss of immigration status.
