A Permanent Solution for Employees Immigrating to the U.S.
As a skilled or highly valued worker who has decided to seek a permanent residency option in the United States, it is important to work with an immigration law professional that can help you meet your goals.

Employment Based Immigration Options
When seeking your green card through an employer you will likely be placed into the PERM (Program Electronic Review Management) process. The actual procedure of classifying your application and building your path toward a green card can be more complicated. There are several ways to classify clients, and how each person enters the classification will play a part in what degree of preference they get.
- EB-1 — This classification is mostly reserved for recognized workers with outstanding qualifications that are often respected across an industry. Most EB-1 applicants will be high-profile individuals who have risen to the very top of their field or executives or multi-national managers who have been transferred to the U.S. for employment by their company. Individuals in this preference category do not require the PERM process. Our attorney has the experience working with immigration issues for Fortune 500 companies to manage the highly complex and demanding EB-1 application process.
- EB-2 — This classification is reserved for individuals being sponsored by an employer for a position that requires a masters or higher degree of education. These individuals operate in highly specialized fields and must be working in a position that matches their collegiate training. Employers sponsoring these individuals will usually need to go through the PERM process. While the permanent residency process for an EB-2 can be shorter, it is still complex and requires the guidance of an experienced immigration law professional.
- EB-3 — Workers classified as an EB-3 are skilled professionals in a position that requires at least a bachelor's degree. Employers sponsoring these individuals will need to go through the PERM certification process. Our legal professionals can help you or your organization put together the proper documentation and application to keep the process moving forward.
Our office has helped support the permanent entry of individuals from across the globe into fields that include technology, education and scientific pursuits.
