ImmigrationOur immigration group is one of the largest and most respected in the Northwest. Our attorneys guide clients through the constantly changing maze of immigration. We handle cases for individuals, families, local businesses, and multinational corporations. We represent companies and organizations of all sizes, from start ups to some of the largest companies in the world, in fields such as computer software, banking, forest products, architecture, electronics, manufacturing, arts and entertainment, construction, biotechnology, health-care, international trade, and education.
Our practice includes securing all types of nonimmigrant and immigrant visas as well as labor certifications, preference status leading to permanent residence, citizenship, and asylum. We have extensive experience in dealing with federal immigration agencies and with U.S. consulates throughout the world. We also represent clients in removal (deportation and exclusion) proceedings, in administrative appeals, and in federal court. We have an experienced and flexible support staff of paralegals and legal assistants. We have developed effective case-management systems, enabling us to handle a large volume of matters while providing timely and thorough status updates to our clients.
