When dealing with complicated federal and state immigration laws for business or family reasons, it is essential to work with an attorney who understands how these laws work and how they may change in the future.

Businesses, individuals and families that need solutions for hiring foreign workers, helping family members get to the U.S., or fighting criminal charges and avoiding deportation will benefit from working with the knowledgeable lawyers of Pecoraro Law.

Providing Solutions For Complex Business Immigration Matters

For many large corporations that would like to hire foreign workers, compliance with federal immigration laws is essential. Failure could invite endless scrutiny from the U.S. Department of Homeland Security. Few attorneys in Louisiana understand these issues better than the attorneys of Pecoraro Law. We can:

  • Help foreign workers acquire the right visa such as an employer-sponsored green card (known as a PERM) or H-1B visa.
  • Help foreign companies obtain the proper visa allowing for investment in the U.S.
  • Ensure that employers are following immigration laws to help avoid fines or other penalties from the Department of Homeland Security.
  • Assist universities such as Louisiana State University and the University of Louisiana at Lafayette that want to hire foreign professors and admit foreign students.
