Our attorneys are intimately familiar with many areas of immigration law. We represent corporations, researchers, business professionals, investors, and other individuals seeking immigration visas and adjustment of status. In particular, we have guided hundreds of foreign investors and their families through the EB-5 investment-based visa program. Our firm has assisted investors with identifying appropriate investments and placing the requisite capital into regional centers and direct investments, as well as ultimately obtaining permanent residency in the United States. We have also assisted individuals with other visas, including but not limited to foreign CEOs and other foreign corporate officers in obtaining temporary work visas such as L-1 visas.
Attorney Lee has appeared in over 25 speaking engagements across China, educating prospective investors in EB-5 program basics and the ways in which they can educate themselves to protect against fraud, misrepresentation, and disappointment. He has also testified before members of the Washington State legislature about the benefits of the EB-5 program to the state economy, and how the program might be used to fund much needed civil construction projects. In just the past two years, Attorney Lee has helped immigrant investors submit over 90 successful I-526 petitions.
