The attorneys and staff at The Shapiro Law Group are proud of our long history of assisting businesses of all types and sizes in sponsoring their employees for immigrant visas to obtain permanent resident status in the U.S. –commonly known as the “green card.”
Ronald Shapiro has extensive experience in all non-immigrant and immigrant visa matters on behalf of U.S. employers. Based in Chicago, Illinois, we represent large corporations and all companies throughout the Midwest and across the United States. Call our labor certification lawyer at (847) 564-0712 to discuss how we can assist your business.
In most cases, prior to filing an employment-based immigrant visa application on the employee’s behalf, employers must receive approval of a Program Electronic Review Management (PERM) labor certification. This application is filed on behalf of the sponsored or potential employee. As of March 2005, the PERM labor certification process has replaced the traditional Recruitment or Reduction in Recruitment (RIR) process, and is now the primary process for allowing businesses to sponsor employees to receive green cards. The Shapiro Law Group is technologically equipped and well versed in USCIS documentation requirements to expedite immigration visa approvals.
If hiring an employee who has entered the United States on an H-1B visa, H-1B1 visa, E-visa, TN or an L-1B visa, it is necessary that you speak with a knowledgeable PERM labor certification attorney to address all of the complex legal issues.
