What City Will You Be Working In?
Perhaps you need a Cleveland green card, Columbus green card, Detroit green card, Dearborn green card, Painesville green card, Akron green card, or Toledo green card.
Herman Legal Group has offices in all of these locations. Our immigration attorneys in Ohio and Michigan are experts in U.S. immigration law, Ohio immigration law, and Michigan immigration law. Today’s complicated processes and procedures can be overwhelming without the right kind of legal help. Unfortunately many individuals take on this process alone. Some common ways people are denied green cards and work visa credentials are due to:
- Filling out the wrong form for a request
- Failing to provide requested documentation
- Guessing at answers on official forms
- Missing a court appearance

Non-Immigrant Employment Visas
There are all kinds of reasons that U.S. employers hire temporary employees from other countries. Our employment-based immigration lawyers can help with these situations and much more:
H1-B1 Visas – For professionals working in a specialty occupation.
O-1 Visas – For individuals of extraordinary ability.
TN Visas – NAFTA Treaty Visa for citizens of Mexico and Canada.
R-1 Visas – For religious workers, their spouse and children.
E-1 Visas / E-2 Visas – For Treaty Traders and Treaty Investors.
B-1 Visas (For Business) / B-2 Visas (For Pleasure) – Apply directly through U.S. Consulate in their jurisdiction.
Employers and Permanent Labor Certification
PERM Labor Certification – Program Electronic Review Management (PERM) is the first step for certain foreign workers to obtain an employment-based immigrant visa (green card). The filing of the application is the responsibility of the employer. The process requires a petitioning employer to conduct a series of recruitment activities to prove a U.S. citizen or permanent resident has not been found for a given position. PERM is required for EB-2 and EB-3 employment-based categories. PERM is a complex and lengthy process and we highly recommend seeking counsel from an experienced immigration law firm.
