Employment Immigration 

One of Tewani Law’s strongest areas of practice is employment immigration.

Whether it’s adjusting status, petitioning for a green card, consular processing, applying for a visa, etc., we have experience in helping you walk through the complex process of U.S. immigration law in the most efficient way possible.

  • Adjustment of status for an elderly client
    • From her son Nithan’s perspective:

“The first lawyer I approached for filing a green card for my elderly mother, advised that she would have to travel back to India to be processed, which could’ve taken many months of her having to take care of herself. With Mr. Tewani’s guidance, he was able to process her for adjustment of status and greencard, without her having to leave the country.” –Nathan C.

  • Prepared documents to submit in order to obtain a Green Card.

“My children were supposed to be derivative beneficiaries to my green card, however “they aged out”, and were not eligible for the benefits provided by the Children’s Status Protection Act. Mr. Tewani was able to reunite my family by finding a different option. Mr. Tewani was able to discover that my son had credentials to qualify for another visa option.” – Seema L.

My other lawyer recommended a religious worker’s green card, which could’ve taken years to process. Mr. Tewani advised me, based on my credentials, that I was eligible for O-1, a dual intent visa, and won my case in just 15 days.” –Dexter R.
