The name Carol Wolfenson is known to numerous employers throughout New York. These companies turn to me when they need an experienced, business-savvy immigration lawyer to:
Pursue legal status for a professional employee, such as an engineer or manager, whom they want to transfer to their U.S. location
Secure work visa status for a graduating student who has proven ability and desires continuing U.S. employment
Hire skilled workers from another nation, due to the lack of available local people for positions essential to running their businesses
Hudson Valley companies have discovered there are several important advantages to working with a local attorney, rather than with a firm that has only a New York City office. I am directly accessible to my business clients for answers and updates about employment visa applications- and your business-critical immigration case won't be passed off to a paralegal.
Over the past 25 years, I have devoted much of my time and energy to working with individuals and employers to obtain work visas, making certain their labor certifications contain all the information necessary for approval. Today's PERM process for labor certification essentially requires electronic submission, and I have all the technology necessary to complete this process in both my New York City and New Paltz offices.
U.S. immigration laws and practices have long been complex, and today they are also changing rapidly. A successful lawyer in the immigration field must be knowledgeable about legal history and longstanding processes, but also be highly aware of how things get done for employers today. When I see a need to document specialized business skills or interpret company finances, I consult with co-counsel who concentrates on business law and accounting, taking every step to ensure the success of your work visa applications. I have been associated with Jeffrey Ray Cohen, Esq., of North Miami Beach, Florida, for the past 30 years. Jeffrey is a CPA and attorney admitted to practice in both New York and Florida, and maintains his offices at 297 Sunny Isles Blvd., North Miami Beach, Florida, 33160. He can be contacted at (305) 940-1985.
I recognize a need to think innovatively and help my clients pursue options that other, less focused or less experienced attorneys might not offer. Although most employer-sponsored work visas arenonimmigrant visas class, special situations may allow application for immigrant visas or a National Interest Waiver.
