Charting Path to a Green Card

A small company turned to our team to prepare and file a labor certification application on behalf of a professional employee. As part of the application, we included extensive details on the differences between the permanent job position, and prior positions that the employee had held with the company.

When the Department of Labor denied the application without justification, we successfully requested supervisor review of the decision, and obtained the approval. As a result, the employee was able to apply for permanent resident status, and now has a green card, evidence of permanent resident status.
