Immigration Law Teams
Each attorney at Reeves & Associates specializes
in one of four areas of immigration law: business and transactional
immigration, family immigration, litigation in federal courts,
or deportation/removal defense. Below are summaries of some
immigration issues with links to more information.
There are several routes to naturalization and U.S. citizenship.
In most cases, it is necessary to obtain permanent residency
to be eligible for naturalization. Alternatively, a child
born outside the United States may hold citizenship if one
parent is a U.S. citizen.
Employment visas, temporary and permanent, are granted based
on factors that include the credentials and occupation of
the applicant and sponsorship by an employer.
Labor certification under the Department of Labor’s
Program Electronic Review Management (PERM) system allows
U.S. employers to sponsor foreign workers to work permanently
in the United States if it can be demonstrated that
there are insufficient qualified U.S. workers in that area.
Labor certification is the first step for most foreign workers
to obtain permanent residency.
and Physical Therapists
Special opportunities for visas are available to physical
therapists and registered nurses. Our office will advise these
medical professionals in complying with this complex process,
including obtaining the visa screen certificate.
Investor visas are excellent options for foreign entrepreneurs.
The foreign investor needs to meet certain requirements including
the nature of the investment, the source of the funds and
a comprehensive business plan.
Family immigration visas allow parents, children, spouses
and fiancés to enter the United States and live in the
U.S. as permanent residents. Our attorneys counsel and prepare
clients for interviews with the USCIS and Embassies to ensure
the visa is issued.
in U.S. Courts
Reeves & Associates has a long record of litigation in
federal courts. When the USCIS and State Department know that
you are represented by a firm that is prepared to go to court,
they are more likely to treat your matter in a fair, timely
and appropriate manner.
and Removal Defense
The detention and removal defense team has years of experience
in cancellation of removal, waivers of inadmissibility and
deportability, asylum, withholding of removal and other matters.
If you face possible detention or deportation, it is important
that you consult with an immigration lawyer experienced in
