The Importance of Telling a Story

Feb 9, 2015 8:47:19 AM / by Staff Attorney posted in Success Stories

Immigration AttorneyAs attorneys, we are intently focused on the law and legal procedures. After all, failing to follow these could result in our disbarment. But we must remember that each of our cases begins with a person. And each person has a story, and this story, more often than not, is helpful for the case. A client’s story, told appropriately, brings the law to life. It reminds us why we chose to become lawyers, but it also helps us win cases.

It is true that immigration officers have exceptionally limited time to adjudicate a case. But nonetheless, during that limited time, the officers would like to get a glimpse of the person in each case. It is important to tell the appropriate story.

Our Client Prevailed on a Direct-Investment I-829 RFE Received after the Client’s Employment Fell to 5 Employees

Jan 16, 2015 12:32:19 PM / by Staff Attorney posted in Success Stories

0 Comments

Our client’s direct-investment company operated like every other business in the U.S. – it had its ups and downs. The Company had a great product, but like the majority of new businesses, it struggled to establish a loyal customer base. It also dealt with the usual challenges employers face with their employees – employees who change their mind, find better paying jobs, perform poorly or violate the terms of employment.
         
While none of this is unusual for a U.S. business, this Company had to live up to a higher standard, as one of its principal investors was an EB-5 investor with I-829 pending.  The client had a strong I-829 filing. All their employees had been on board well before the I-829 filing; in fact,  the Company’s operations were going strong with a new product line launched just before the I-829 filing and was well-positioned to secure new customers.

Facing Complications in H1B Visa Renewal with Skilled Legal Help

Nov 22, 2013 7:36:02 AM / by Staff Attorney posted in H1B, Success Stories, Visas

0 Comments

In our notable case for October 2013, both the company who hired us and its employee were very scared that their H1B renewal would be denied. So many H1B renewals are receiving a request for evidence and notice of intent to deny that it is no longer considered a routine matter.

In fact, many immigration attorneys charge the same amount for the renewal as they do for the first initial H1B visa. At the Immigration Law Office of Los Angeles, P.C., our legal team is extraordinarily successful in these cases because we work very closely with the company. Sometimes, we have to insist on making changes to job titles or job descriptions to more accurately reflect the work employee is doing. We have found that many employees have simply inherited job descriptions that may be four, five, six, or even more years older and that do not accurately reflect the work they do today.

The takedown of the federal Defense of Marriage Act (DOMA) in the face of a recent U.S. Supreme Court ruling means that same-sex couples may now access federal benefits on the same basis as other married couples - and that agencies throughout the federal government are scrambling to comply with the new ruling.

Attorney Scott McVarish at the Immigration Law Office of Los Angeles, P.C. has a long history fighting for the rights of LGBT individuals and couples. His past work includes successfully defending teachers who were subjected to discrimination based on their sexual orientation.

Life Story of a Client Brings Success in Canceling Removal by Immigration

Oct 11, 2013 1:45:40 PM / by Staff Attorney posted in Success Stories, Deportation

0 Comments

In our notable case for August 2013, our cancellation of removal for a client who was facing difficult odds in immigration court, our legal team became much more comfortable and confident when we were able to close the removal proceedings against him.

Our legal team’s waiver application for the client to receive his adjustment of status through provisional waiver was more than 120 pages long. We have every document that immigration services could possibly want.

This is the difference between the Immigration Law Office of Los Angeles, P.C. and many other practitioners. We create well-documented narratives that give the United States Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) officers an understanding into the rich, complex lives our clients lead. We don’t use cookie cutter templates that sound exactly alike from one client to the next. We create moving narratives.

Notable Victory in September 2013 for H1B Promotion Application

Sep 12, 2013 1:55:19 PM / by Staff Attorney posted in H1B, Success Stories

0 Comments

Whenever a worker wants us to do an H1B for him or her, we insist that the employer comply with the strengthened USCIS regulations that require the employer to pay for all of the attorney and government processing fees. And, despite the nervousness of our clients at this news, we always succeed.

Employers want to abide by the law, cut through administrative delay, and just get their job done. When we tell them they will have to pay our fees – – which average out to only be $100 or so per month for the lifespan of that worker’s H1B – – the employers agree. We then help them cut through the administrative delay with our expertise.
