Serving employers, professionals, academics, and individuals in the practice areas of immigration and nationality law
With offices in suburban Cleveland, Ohio and serving clients throughout the United States, Ritter Halliday LLP separates itself from other immigration law firms through our dedication as practitioners, high ethical standards, and strong competency in the area of immigration law. Our attorneys have earned praise and respect from clients and peers alike for their legal abilities and ethical approach.
We are a service-oriented firm that understands responsiveness is of utmost importance
The corporations and individuals we serve expect a high degree of care and attention that only a specialized firm like ours can provide. We pride ourselves on being accessible and prompt, because immigration matters are highly important and deserve our full attention and expertise.
Our practice is focused in the following sub-practice areas:
- Corporate immigration
- Family-based immigration and citizenship
- Investment-based immigration
- Request for Evidence (RFE) and appeals
- Medical and research immigration
Individualized analysis is key
Immigration and nationality laws are diverse and may impact employers and individuals very differently depending upon individual fact patterns. The experience of a friend or colleague may not be the same as yours, even if your cases are similar.
For employers large and small, therefore, we provide a wide array of cost-effective services addressing our clients’ specific and changing needs, including:
- Employment authorized nonimmigrant visa matters
- PERM Labor Certifications
- Petitions for immigrant workers (both PERM exempt and non-exempt)
- IRCA compliance (I-9 audits), employer sanctions defense, and assessing and mitigating liability exposure in M&A due diligence matters
- E-1 Treaty Trader Visas, E-2 Treaty Investor Visas, and EB-5 Investor Green Cards
Our attorneys also work to keep families together through representation of dependent family members in the non-immigrant and immigrant matters.
Personal attention from an experienced immigration lawyer
Our clients include large publicly held corporations, small privately-held businesses, colleges and universities, medical institutions, foreign medical graduates, international professors and researchers, and foreign nationals with family in the United States who seek to reunite through immigration. No matter the size or type of client, and regardless of the service provided, we will address each immigration case with the care and attention it deserves.
