Lawyers with a Unique Perspective


Come to the United States!

There are many pathways for foreign nationals to come to the United States to visit, study, work, or live permanently. We have extensive experience in obtaining a wide range of nonimmigrant visas, including H-1Bs for professional workers, and TN (NAFTA) visas for Canadian and Mexican professionals. We have helped persons from all over the world obtain U.S. Green Cards, based on employment and on marriage.


Come to Canada!

Canada offers many opportunities for skilled workers and their families to live, work and study in a prosperous country with excellent schools, social services, and universal health care. We have helped many people work temporarily in Canada through NAFTA and other programs. We have also helped many people  immigrate to Canada as Federal Skilled Workers, and through family-based sponsorship. The new Express Entry program now offers permanent residence in as little as six months.
