Immigration

The Kullman Firm provides a complete range of business immigration services including obtaining temporary and permanent work visas for foreign national employees and representation for immigration compliance and enforcement matters.  Examples of temporary work visas include H-1B, H-1B1, L-1, TN and EB-3 visas.  We also handle employment based immigrant visas (“green cards”) as well as naturalization applications. The firm also provides comprehensive immigration compliance services designed to reduce a company’s risk so that it is in the best possible position to defend immigration enforcement actions.

Immigration compliance will be one of the largest areas of government enforcement over the next few years.   With fines in all areas of immigration compliance having recently been increased, it is important for every business to be proactive and take steps to prevent liability for violations of immigration regulations.  The Kullman Firm can assist companies with preventative measures which will reduce potential exposure.  These services include performing an internal I-9 audit, developing written I-9 policies and procedures (which can be considered a mitigating factor if your I-9s are audited by the government), I-9 and E-Verify compliance training, E-Verify consultation and implementation, consultation on purchasing and using electronic I-9 systems, H-1B/LCA audits, and consultation and protocols for social security mismatch notifications.

The Kullman Firm is also experienced in defending employers who are the subject of immigration enforcement actions.  This includes an I-9 audit by Immigration and Customs Enforcement, an investigation for discrimination in the Form I-9 process by the Immigrant and Employee Rights Section of the U.S. Department of Justice (formerly the Office of Special Counsel) or an audit by the Department of Labor for immigration based issues.  The firm has experience handling immigration visas and compliance matters for clients in multiple industries throughout the United States.
