Business Immigration

CJ Lake's employment practice is complemented by services related to business and worksite immigration. Our immigration practice includes compliance counseling, auditing employee work authorization practices, training and "best practices" for managers, and litigating federal immigration issues before administrative law judges and in federal court. The firm's attorneys regularly represent clients in investigations, audits and enforcement actions by government agencies. These include but are not limited to the Department of Homeland Security's Immigration and Customs Service, the Department of Justice's Office of Special Counsel, and the Department of Labor.

For entities that experience a shortage of willing, qualified, and able domestic workers, CJ Lake counsels clients on federal employment-related visa programs, including the H-2A, H-2B, and H-1B programs. The firm helps clients comply with the often complex and stringent procedures involved in obtaining proper labor certifications and visa petition approvals through the Departments of Labor, Homeland Security, and State. The firm's attorneys have successfully represented a number of clients in administrative court proceedings arising out of alien worker programs.
