The United States is a nation of immigrants. Midway through our third century, we still rely on the talents and industry of immigrants for innovation, research and development, and essential labor that keeps our economy moving. If you are seeking permanent resident status in the United States based on an offer of employment, or if you are an employer wishing to sponsor a worker, Thomas J. Hurley, Jr. Attorney at Law can guide you through the complex web of federal regulations. For more than 25 years, employment-based immigration lawyer Thomas J. Hurley has offered legal assistance in areas related to:
Filing a petition
Immigration categories E1 – E5
Immigrant Petition by Alien Entrepreneur
Misrepresentation of material facts or fraud defense
National Interest Waiver (NIW)
Employer sanction defense
Temporary Worker Status (I-129)
Immigration bureaucracy and the national interest Employment-based immigration is meant to benefit the immigrant, the employer and U.S. interests. U.S. policy attempts to balance the competing needs of attracting essential workers and ensuring that qualified U.S. workers are not disadvantaged. The hopeful immigrant must craft a petition with that understanding. We understand how the immigration bureaucracy works and what elements are essential to a successful petition.
Defense against violations Penalties for violating immigration laws are severe, including heavy fines for employers and lifetime bans from entering the United States for immigrants convicted of misrepresenting material facts. Our skilled attorneys know what is necessary to mount a successful defense, and will defend you vigorously against such charges.
