We have represented companies and non-profit organizations both in the U.S. and abroad in obtaining U.S. immigrant and non-immigrant visas through the employment, business and investment categories, as well as in U.S. citizenship matters. Additional expertise includes employment cases, labor certifications and consular work.

For individuals, we have handled a wide range of immigration matters including visa processing, naturalizations and defense of removal (deportation) cases. And with support from the Tax Planning group, have assisted in pre-immigration tax planning.

While the constant change in U.S. immigration laws presents challenges for many in this area of work, we are at the forefront of this rapidly changing field of law.

Immigration Attorney Kisshia Simmons is the Featured Speaker for Better Business Bureau Podcast

Recently, Kisshia Simmons, an attorney in our Houston’s immigration practice, was a featured guest on Houston’s Better Business Bureau’s Business Houston Podcast, which provides relevant and meaningful interviews with small and medium business owners and business leaders. 

Simmons shared how our firm supports area employers and individuals with their immigration law needs. She also shared her insights on current immigration law trends, including the latest immigration policy changes and proposed legislation that have potential to affect Houston and Texas employers, such as the Farm Workforce Modernization Act or the Temporary Protected Status granted to Venezuelan citizens earlier this year. 

Moreover, Simmons discussed various visa options available to employers who depend on recruiting foreign-born employees, including in farming and health care industries. She also alerted business owners to the continued increase in I-9 audits and resulting financial penalties and other timely employment-related immigration issues.
