Main Areas of Practice:
Business and Investment Based:
Lucy Lu & Associates focuses on helping employers successfully relocate human resources to the United States or other countries. The firm's services significantly ease the administrative burden of managing foreign national employees, as well as improve the quality and integrity of information about the foreign national workforce. Whether the employee is a business analyst, professor, programmer, scientist, investor, artist, or athlete, we can help devise and implement a successful transitional plan. The firm represents employers and investors who wish to petition for foreign national employees or high management, both in the U.S. and abroad, including temporary stays in non-immigrant status and permanent status.
The US immigration law, under certain circumstances, allows foreign nationals to immigrate to the U.S. and obtain their green card based on family relationship to U.S. Citizens or lawful permanent residents. Lucy Lu & Associates helps clients navigate this bureaucratic quagmire to obtain their green cards as quickly as possible.
