Los Angeles Employment Immigration Lawyer


Los Angeles employment immigration lawyer Patricia Depew successfully represents employers who hire or seek to hire foreign professionals to work in the United States. She is committed to assisting businesses who want to sponsor qualified foreign workers. To recruit and employ foreign nationals, employers must obtain a proper visa. Employers most frequently use the H-1B, L, and TN visas. Patricia Depew can assess your particular situation and determine the proper visa to fit your hiring needs.

H-1B visas go to foreign nationals in specialty occupations, in jobs related to the Defense Department, or in jobs that call for “exceptional” talents or skills. To qualify, a prospective employer must make a job offer for a position requiring a bachelor's degree or its equivalent (or higher) and current appropriate licenses. (Fashion models are exempt from the degree requirement but must demonstrate “distinguished merit and ability.”) H-1B visas also require employers to file an approved Labor Certification Application with the Petition for Nonimmigrant Worker. L-1 visas permit U.S.-based employers to transfer managers, executives, or specialists in the same company, and TN visas allow Mexican and Canadian professionals into the U.S. for short-term business trips.

M. H. a Former Client

Her staff is amazing. I hear friends constantly saying that their attorney never returns calls. Ms. Depew has called me at all hours. She is the most competent attorney you could find. My case was so involved that I think another attorney would have given up, but not this law office. Do yourself a favor and get the best there is.”
