Employment Based Visas

The United States offers a number of non-immigrant and immigrant visa options for professionals, workers, and students. In many cases, an employer must sponsor the foreign national seeking employment in the United States. However, sponsorship is not required for certain visa categories, such as for investors seeking to start an enterprise in the United States, or for people with extraordinary abilities planning to pursue work in their area of expertise.

Wilkes Legal, LLC can help employers navigate the process of securing lawful permanent residency for foreign workers, from the labor certification process through the visa application.  We can also advise investors, students, skilled workers, professionals, exchange visitors, and others seeking to work in the United States about their visa options. We guide workers and professionals through every step of the visa application process to facilitate timely and efficient results.

If you are an individual or employer seeking assistance with a work visa, contact the immigration lawyers at Wilkes Legal. We represent professionals, workers and businesses in Maryland, Washington. D.C., and Virginia.
