New Orleans Employment Visa Immigration Lawyers

Non-Immigrant Visas for Foreign Workers and Professionals

The immigration law and employment visa practice at the New Orleans law firm of Stephenson, Chávarri & Lambert is designed to serve the interests of nurses, athletes, artists, researchers, IT workers, dentists, doctors and other professionals who are seeking employment in the United States. Our firm has strong links to several of the consular offices in the city of New Orleans and elsewhere. We employ an official translator, certified by the Administrative Office of the United States Courts, and most of our attorneys speak at least one foreign language fluently.

The international scope and multilingual capabilities of our firm make Stephenson, Chávarri & Lambert a logical choice to handle employment visas and other immigration matters in which the services of a Spanish- or French-speaking attorney would be invaluable. Also, the firm’s extensive experience in both immigration law and criminal defense enables us to effectively guide clients whose immigration status may be threatened by an arrest or criminal allegation.

If you need the advice of a respected attorney regarding any concerns you may have about applying for an H-1B employment visa or if you are a Louisiana employer seeking high-quality and cost-effective legal service in obtaining H-2B visas or green cards for foreign national workers and international transferees, please contact our offices in New Orleans today.
