Employment Based Immigration Assistance

Van Wormer Law represents employers and businesses with immigration needs, as well as individuals seeking immigration status based upon business and employment. Experienced representation in matters of immigration is critical.

There are many types of business- and employment-based immigration, and there is much to be considered with every case, as each one is unique and complex.

It is for these matters that the experienced assistance of our business immigration attorney in Virginia is essential.
