Employment-Based Immigration

At the Mazzola Law Firm, we represent employers and professionals in all areas of employment-based immigration matters. Our lawyers provide practical advice to companies that need to hire and retain foreign talent on a temporary or permanent basis. We customize immigration solutions for every person who visits our office because we recognize that everyone has different circumstances and unique needs.

This is especially relevant in cases of employment-based immigration. The waiting periods vary widely according to numerous factors, including the country of origin, and the credentials belonging to the person involved in the process.

Five Categories 

The five basic categories of applicants for employment-based immigration are  as follows:

  • Priority workers
  • Members of professions holding advanced degrees
  • Skilled workers, professionals and other workers
  • Special immigrants
  • Employment creation visas

For our clients who require temporary work visas, our Beaumont employment-based nonimmigrant visa attorneys choose the visa that fit best with their unique circumstances. H-1B and L-1 visas are two of the most common such  visas used by our immigration attorneys.

Navigating A Complicated System

Employment-based immigration law in the U.S. is complex and frequently changing. Most employment-based applications will require that the applicant and employer undergo a process known as PERM.  This process involves a certification by the U.S. Department of Labor that there is a lack of qualified U.S. workers in the applicant’s specific job category.

We also represent professionals who can obtain permanent residency without a labor certification because their work is extraordinary and/or in the national interest.

The Mazzola Law Firm provides a wide range of employment-based immigration services, and can help clients obtain permanent residency in the United States through EB-1, EB-2, EB-3 and EB-4 visas, as well as EB-5 investor visas.

If you or a family member needs compassionate, experienced and qualified legal representation on an employment-based immigration matter, we can help.
