Plunkett Cooney’s immigration law practice is focused primarily on assisting businesses with the transfer of personnel to the United States. This process involves procuring work-related visas and visa extensions, labor certifications and “green cards.”
The firm’s approach is to focus on each applicant’s background, work history and education. That information is analyzed in order to match the applicant with the proper immigration category. This measured approach often expedites and increases the probability of government approval.
Inquiries regarding the firm's services for non U.S. based companies can be directed to Seymour M. Nayer.
