Prior successful cases

Example cases that this lawyer has handled for their clients

L-1A visa for a Managing Director

L-1A visa for a Managing Director

Visa type: L-1A

Who: Managing Director of an International Manufacturing Company


Background: The client had been in the US in L-1A status but had been working for an affiliated entity for several months that he did not have work authorization. He contacted the firm for legal representation to correct his non-compliance as soon as possible


My work: I quickly prepared and submitted an amendment application. It was issued an robust RFE due to the non-compliance but after submission of a comprehensive RFE submission his amendment petition was approved for the remaining allowable time. The client later retained for assistance with his EB-1A immigrant visa.

Result: L-1A approved

E-2 for a Canadian Chief Executive Officer

E-2 for a Canadian Chief Executive Officer

Visa type: E2

Who: Canadian Chief Executive Officer - E-2


Background: The client owned several real estate development businesses in Florida had accrued unlawful status in the US during the pandemic. He requested consultation after the CBP denied his entry to the US due to his prior unlawful status. After consultation, I established that though he has violated the US he was not inadmissible and he did not have the correct work authorization. He urgently needed to return to the US to oversee the already real estate projects. I suggested the E-2 given the substantial investment of over $6 million USD in the US and his executive position. I prepared his E-2 application with additional submission addressing his denial


My work: I conducted the consultation, assessed eligibility, reviewed documentation, drafted the submission, prepared the client for the in-person interview at the US consulate in Toronto

Result: E-2 approved

Family-Based Immigrant Visa Waiver - I-601

Family-Based Immigrant Visa Waiver - I-601

Visa type: family-based immigrant visa

Who: Family-Based Immigrant Visa Waiver - I-601


Background: The client had self-filed a family-based immigrant visa and appeared at the US consulate interview. The client first learned of her permanent inadmissibility due to prior misrepresentation at her US consulate interview. She contacted me for consultation to prepare an I-601 waiver


My work: I assessed eligibility for the waiver and determined the legal strategy. After several roadblocks with trying to collect medical documentation, I prepared a strong submission including hundreds of pages of supporting documents and affidavits from family and friends

Result: 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.
