Frequently Asked Questions
Our organization has never sponsored a visa or worked with an immigration lawyer before. What's the best way to get started?
The best way to get started is to contact us and schedule a consultation. There, we can learn more about your organization and explore what visa options work best for your circumstances. We look forward to speaking with you.
It looks like your firm is based in Michigan, but our company is based out of another state or country. Can you still help us?
We absolutely can. Our attorneys are all licensed in the State of Michigan, but because immigration law is federal law, our firm can assist clients anywhere. In fact, we can assist organizations in any part of the United States or in any country abroad that are seeking to employ foreign workers in the United States. We have assisted clients in all 50 U.S. states and in over 100 foreign countries.
Our organization is considering switching immigration lawyers, but we have one or more immigration cases pending. Do we need to wait for those cases to be adjudicated before we switch?
No, if your organization is considering switching immigration lawyers, you can do so at any time. We would be happy to take over any existing cases, and we can coordinate with your current legal team to ensure a smooth transition.

How much does it cost to sponsor an employee for a work visa?
The cost of any visa depends on the specific circumstances of the case. There are certain government filing fees that the employer is obligated to pay when applying to sponsor an employee for a work visa, while other fees can be paid by either the employer or the employee. Our attorney fee is calculated based on the complexity of the case. Generally, we prefer to use a flat-fee rather than an hourly rate for a few reasons:
- Flat-fees take less time for us to bill, and because we spend less time on billing, we spend more time on your case. This helps us complete your case in a quicker and more cost-effective manner, and we pass this savings along to you.
- With a flat-fee model, your organization and employees can feel free to email us with questions or issues and receive a prompt response without worrying about it increasing the cost of the application.
