Mandelbaum Salsburg’s Immigration Practice Group advises employers on all immigration issues, including I-9 compliance, immigration related wage issues, and Immigration and Department of Labor record creation and retention issues. Whether your goal is to hire a foreign national, open a branch of your foreign business in the U.S., live permanently in the United States or to work in the United States temporarily; whether you are a high-powered executive, marrying a foreign fiancé an undocumented worker, our Immigration practice has experience with the full spectrum of immigration issues.

The U.S. immigration system is comprised of a complex web of intricate laws and vast bureaucratic agencies, each with its own rules, regulations and policies. We help our clients navigate the red tape to achieve the best possible outcomes when dealing with all federal agencies and courts involved with every aspect of U.S. immigration law.

Applying for a visa requires much more than completing forms. The U.S. government places strict requirements on qualifications and has inflexible procedures and requirements for filing and approval. Even the smallest inadvertent mistakes in an application can lead to crucial delays and denial. Each type of visa comes with its own set of essential criteria that requires exacting proofs of qualifications.

We discuss with our clients their short-term and ultimate immigration goals to set up a long-range plan. We analyze the situation to determine the appropriate pathway and gather evidence that supports each element of eligibility. We carefully and completely explain to our clients the best way to achieve desired outcomes, timeframes and permitted and prohibited activity during the process.

Immigration policy and procedure literally changes daily. We stay ahead of the curve on these critical developments in immigration law and procedure to best serve our clients.

Our direct personal interaction with each client helps assure effective analysis of all issues. Our experience with thousands of cases permits us to advise clients as to how the case may or will evolve from initial consultation to the final desired outcome. Before undertaking a course of action, the client will be advised of all aspects of the process and, where possible, the choice of how and when to proceed.
