For sixteen years, Los Angeles immigration attorney Patricia Depew has offered I-9 compliance representation and general counsel services to HR departments in businesses across southern California. As almost all employers know by now, an I-9 form (Employment Eligibility Verification) must be filled out for all employees they hire. The form must be kept at company offices or facilities and may be examined at any time by immigration authorities. Hiring a person who is not eligible for employment in the U.S. is a serious offense and a costly blunder for any company. Year after year, U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) conducts hundreds of investigations into employers' immigration-related hiring practices.
Patricia Depew successfully represents clients first by making sure they have accurate legal advice; she then works closely with her clients, helping them, if necessary, to take appropriate legal action. Her comprehensive immigration practice includes family-based immigration, business and employment immigration, and investment and trader visas. I-9 compliance lawyer Patricia Depew provides legal counsel in all matters relating to immigration law and immigration-related employment law.
