Success Stories From 2009

These are some sample cases from our files. It is impossible for us to highlight all we have done in the past thirty years of our practice. These are just some of the cases that come to mind.

We were recently retained by an employer whose employee fell out of status due to an omissions by the former counsel. Prior to the employee’s H1B expiration date, the employer tried to file an H1B extension. The employer’s former Counsel utilized an obsolete and inappropriate wage source when filing the LCA. This wage amount was also not representative of what the employee was earning. As a result, the employer had to withdraw the LCA. This circumstance resulted in an untimely filing of the employer’s H1B application and the employee’s status expiring due to no fault of his own. Nonetheless, we were able to obtain H1B approval for the employee in six business days.  The approval was given nunc pro tunc.

We were recently retained by an employer who had received very poor legal advice and representation from two different lawyers because of which their employee and her children fell out of H-1 status AND were unlawfully present in USA since 2004.  It appeared almost impossible that we will be able to get her back into status after a gap of over FIVE years, but it did work out.  Today, we have received H-1 approval as well as the coveted I-94 for all family members.  Comments from the client are here: http://www.immigration.com/guestbook/h-1-visa/guestbook-entry-bruce-a-t…

We were retained by a corporate client to process several E-3 petitions for nationals of Australia. All of the visas were issued at the Australian consulates without any problem. One applicant has already entered the U.S is currently working on E-3 status. We have also submitted a petition for an E-3 amendment with USCIS, which was also approved without any issues.

We were asked to also provide an opinion on the E-3 possibility for a Stage actor and teacher of dramatics.  That case appeared to be a bit difficult because it was not clear that the job required a degree.  Nevertheless, after that matter was clarified, that E-3 visa was also approved.

We have recently won a case following a Request for Evidence for a professor - Ph.D. in Mass Media and Communication.   USCIS requested additional “documentary evidence” to support our claim that the applicant qualified under the EB1 Outstanding Researcher and Professor category based on applicant’s publications, acting as a judge of her peers as well as her original contributions. Based on the international reputation the applicant gained as a result of her involvement in the field of mass media, we were able to provide documentation, which included printouts from various news sources as well as extensive web coverage of her work. We also provided additional letters from editors that unequivocally identified the applicant as one of the eminent scholars in her field. Additionally, we provided evidence of the significance of the publications where the applicant’s work had been featured, that included the impact factor, circulation, ranking and historical data. The case was approved within four days of receipt of the response to the Request for Evidence.
