Prior successful cases

Example cases that this lawyer has handled for their clients

O1 visa for a Venezuelan lawyer

O1 visa for a Venezuelan lawyer

Visa type: O1 visa

Who: Transactional lawyer from Venezuela


Background: The client was needed in the US to handle important deals for his employer, but did not have other viable visa options. Its not very common for lawyers to receive O1 visas, but in this case we thought that was the best strategy for a client. This was particularly unique due to the difficulties faced by professionals in the troubled Venezuelan system


My work: After carefully analyzing and eliminating alternative options, we suggested applying for an O-1 visa. This is not a visa category typically used for attorneys, but due to our careful crafting of the case, we won a case for a client

Result: O1 approved

Green Card for a South Korean national with a criminal record

Green Card for a South Korean national with a criminal record

Visa type: Marriage-Based Green Card

Who: South Korean national with a promising career who deserved a second chance


Background: The client was married to a US citizen, who sponsored him for a green card. However, he had a criminal incident in his past that could have been fatal to his green card case


My work: We requested all records about the incident, and performed a careful analysis of the applicable law. We worked with a client to draft a statement addressing the issue and prepared a legal memo of the applicable law to make it clear to the government that he should still be granted a green card despite his past. We also personally represented him during the green card interview to make sure there were no issues at that stage

Result: Green Card issued

Work visa for an Argentian executive with a track record of previous visa denials

Work visa for an Argentian executive with a track record of previous visa denials

Visa type: L1

Who: Multinational Corporate Executive


Background: Client received a denial on an L-1 intracompany transfer visa filed by another firm as he was preparing to move his entire family to the US


My work: We reviewed the prior filings and assessed the available evidence in order to present the strongest case possible for the client. We worked with the client to develop additional evidence to bolster the arguments.

Result: L1 visa approved

Hi Ariel, Just wanted to say THANK YOU for an amazing service and assistance with this case. It started a year ago, and now after all those months, I can relax (at least from this aspect). Just to share with you that it was one of the biggest administration challenges I need to complete as part of the company's Reset. Thank you again

Daliah was recommended to my husband and me by an executive at the company we both work for, and she was very helpful as we prepared for my husband's K1 visa to immigrate to the United States. She provided Certified English Translations for my husband's Israeli documents, including court records. She met with us and helped us organize our documentation and navigate the visa process.
