H-1Bs and Petitions for Workers

Here at the Law Firm of Moumita Rahman, we have successfully helped obtain hundreds of temporary worker visas in numerous different categories. These visas are considered “non-immigrant” visas because they are granted for a limited period of time, and are not permanent. Please read below for the main non-immigrant visa categories we have helped clients with:

  • H-1B Visa

An H-1B Visa is a visa for Specialty Occupation Workers In order to qualify as a specialty occupation, the position must require a body of specialized knowledge in addition to a Bachelor’s degree or the equivalent in that field. The government puts a cap on the amount of H-1B visas granted every year.

  • E-1 Treaty Trader Visa

The E-1 Visa is for Treaty Traders. A person may enter the United States temporarily using this visa in order to carry on trade between their home country and the U.S. if their home country has a treaty with the United States.

  • E-2 Treaty Investor Visa

The E-2 Visa is for Treaty Investors. A person may enter the United States using this visa in order to develop and direct the operations of an enterprise in which they have invested. Employees of Treaty Investors who perform duties that require special qualifications and are essential to the business may also obtain an E visa. These employees must have the same nationality as the alien employer and their home country must have a treaty with the United States.

  • L-1 Intracompany Transfer Visa

High level and essential employees of multinational companies may be eligible for L-1 visas if they are being transferred to the United States. In order to qualify for an L-1 visa the employee must have worked at the same employer in a managerial, executive, or specialized knowledge capacity within the last three years for a minimum of one year.

  • O-1 Extraordinary Ability (“Artist’s”) Visa

O-1 Visas are available to highly talented or acclaimed foreign nationals such as entertainers, scientists, businessmen, and athletes. A high level of achievement must be shown by qualifying for at least 3 out of a set of 10 standard criteria.

  • P Visa Athlete’s Visa

Internationally known athletes and entertainment groups may be eligible to come to the United States temporarily on a P visa. Performing artists that are part of a reciprocal exchange program are eligible for P-2 visas, and culturally unique entertainers are eligible for P-3 visas.

  • R-1 Religious Workers Visas

Religious workers may use an R-1 visa to come to the United States in order to participate in a religious occupation and perform services for their religious organization as long as the religious organization is already established in the United States.

  • TN Visa

  •   My wife and I have worked with Moumita over this past year. I am an immigrant to the USA and was supported greatly by her service this past year.

    While there was a minor hiccup early in our paperwork submission process, Moumita put us at ease and was able to keep us informed along the way. We would definitely recommend her firm to anyone lookin for immigration advice or assistance.

      Best immigration attorney for YOU! Ms Moumita is really professional, knowledgeable and personable. We had an unique situation. She prepared our case so well that we were able to attend our interview with great confidence. During this one year application, she has always been really responsive and willing to help. Green card immigration process can be long and stressful. You can't control the USCIS timeline or unexpected life changes. Do yourself a favor, give her a call or send her an email. It will save you from all the confusions and headaches. Ms Moumita will walk you through every step. I am her former client. Looking at the green card in my wallet, it wouldn't be so seamless without her.

      I can't say enough on Yelp about the quality of work that Moumita provides. She has become more than just our lawyer in the past few years we have worked with her. She is dedicated and extremely well informed. She keeps herself open so if you need to reach her she's easily accessible. Moumita is definitely ready to dedicate all she has to win your case and help you. She has given me her complete attention whenever it was needed and I'm happy that I went with my initial recommendation of Moumita and I won't ever have to look for any other lawyer.

  •   Moumita helped me with my legal options pertaining to my immigration status. Working with her was such wonderful experience as she was very knowledgeable, supportive, professional and effective. She took her time to explain the process and made sure I understood what choices I had and how to best achieve the optimal outcome; going out of her way to make sure that things was as smooth and cost effective as possible for her client. Can highly recommend her to future clients!

      Having worked with Attorney Rahman for several months, I can genuinely say that it was a wonderful experience. I learned a great deal from her and am now able to apply this new knowledge going forward. She was always very patient and professional to both employee and client alike. One of the many reasons clients sought her out was based on her in-depth knowledge of immigration, as well as bankruptcy law.  But that was not all - she is highly referred and recommended!  On many an occasion, while handling firm calls, there was always someone on the other end with great things to say. If it was a potential client, either they were referred by a friend who had a successful experience with Attorney Rahman - or - they had read many of her 5 star reviews and really wanted her to work on their case. If it was an existing client, there was always a word of praise about the excellent work she was doing on their case.  I also had the pleasure of receiving my own share of compliments, primarily due to the fact that Attorney Rahman never kept a client waiting, and I carried out the same service as part of the firm culture. It was refreshing to work with Attorney Rahman. She clearly reflected to her clients - new and existing - that respect was high on her list. Her genuine passion for every case she takes on and her attention, and responsiveness to each, really makes her very rare, especially in the fields of immigration and bankruptcy law. Without a doubt, I would recommend her and know that, from working experience with her, she is honest, hardworking and will give your case the attention it needs for a successful outcome.
