Poyner Spruill LLP offers experienced, multilingual and comprehensive immigration assistance to its corporate clients in a myriad of industries, as well as to individuals. Legal assistance encompasses all employment based nonimmigrant visas, such as the H, J, TN, L, O, P, R and treaty-based E-1, E-2 and E-3 visas. We enable our clients to hire long-term through permanent United States resident visa status for prized employees, using creative strategies to obtain J-1 visa waivers where needed. EB-5 or permanent resident investor visas and first preference permanent residence receive the thorough preparation and meticulous attention that their ultimate success requires. Where needed, we guide clients through the labor certification process to meet the recruitment activities required under PERM.
We are equally comfortable assisting with all family-based visas, from K visas to permanent residence, overstays and North Carolina specific immigration concerns. Political asylum cases are handled with compassion and experience for qualifying individuals.
Naturalization with related citizenship questions are frequently the next step once permanent United States residence is obtained.
To reduce immigration-related questions by Human Resource managers at the time of hiring, we pro-actively address compliance issues to meet I-9 audits and Immigration Customs and Enforcement activities with equanimity. We also update our clients on all E-Verify developments.
Poyner Spruill’s ultimate commitment is to build client success in a cost effective, highly pro-active and accessible environment. Recognizing that attracting and retaining valued foreigners to the United States is critical in a competitive world economy, it is our goal to make that need a reality for our clients.
