Immigration and Nationality Law

Whether you’re immigrating to the United States or sponsoring an employee to work here temporarily, navigating the processes and procedures of U.S. immigration law can be complicated. Businesses and individuals dealing with immigration issues need an attorney to help them understand their options under the law.

At Udall Shumway PLC, we understand that today’s businesses demand and deserve more from their immigration counsel and that individuals want to feel safe and comfortable when working through the labyrinth created by U.S. immigration laws. Our immigration attorneys work closely with our clients to devise and implement strategies and procedures that accomplish their immigration, visa, and worksite compliance objectives. We value our relationships and strive to understand all of our clients’ individual capabilities, budget constraints, and objectives.

We have represented clients in a wide variety of immigration case matters including family and employment-based work, immigrant and non-immigrant visa work, consular processing overseas, and naturalization matters. We routinely handle cases before the United States Citizenship and Immigration Services, Department of State, National Visa Center, Department of Labor, Immigration Courts, the Board of Immigration Appeals, and the Administrative Appeals Office.
