Many are under the mistaken impression that attorneys can effectively handle immigration proceedings from anywhere. It is true that immigration laws are federal and not based on your individual state. However, especially in an area such as Orlando, Florida, there are many advantages to having a local attorney.
I have seen this first hand from my experiences representing clients in deportation hearings, asylum cases, criminal matters and other litigation before the Immigration Court in Orlando. The Orlando Immigration Court is part of the Executive Office for Immigration Review under the Department of Justice. However, the court has its own personnel, rules and procedures. I have found my practical, first-hand knowledge of the staff and judges and the specifics of the litigation process before this court to be extremely helpful. This experience helps me present the most effective case by advising my clients about what they can expect during these often emotional and confusing times.
Orlando has developed into one of the primary locations for technology-sector jobs in the Unites States. More and more major businesses are moving their headquarters to Florida’s High Tech Corridor. Our area is also home to the Florida Institute of Technology, the Kennedy Space Center, Universal Studios and Disney.
Both start up and existing companies benefit greatly from having a local Florida attorney. This gives us the ability to work hand in hand on the issues relating to both immigrant and non-immigrant employment based visa applications. This includes the H-1B professional work visa. It is subject to a numerical cap, making time of the essence. E-2 investor visas, the L-1 intercompany transfers, and O class extraordinary ability visas are also frequently handled in Orlando.
