Applying for legal residency in the United States on either a permanent or temporary basis can be a complex and intimidating task for anyone taking it on alone without an immigration attorney. However, the likelihood of your success can increase dramatically when you have solid legal experience and a comprehensive knowledge of immigration law on your side.
Our immigration law firm knows immigration law and can help you determine the best path to legal U.S. residency. Our US immigration attorneys handle immigrant and non-immigrant visa petitions for individuals and employers, and provide comprehensive legal support throughout the process.


Often referred to as a green card, permanent legal resident status is an important step for many immigrants. Accordingly, our immigration lawyers help clients nationwide with immigrant visa petitions and procedures, including:

  • Family visas for parents, children, brothers and sisters of U.S. citizens, including K type fiancée and family visa petitions
  • EB-1 visa for an Alien of Extraordinary Ability, Outstanding Professor/Researcher, or Multinational Executive Manager
  • National Interest Waivers, or EB-2 visas, for outstanding researchers and professionals doing work judged to be in the national interest
  • EB-5 Investor visas, for qualified individuals able to invest $500,000 or more in a U.S. business
  • PERM/labor certification visas, for those who fulfill employment requirements of U.S. companies


Non-immigrant visas are appropriate for people wishing to engage in U.S. trade, take a tourist trip, study at a U.S. institution of higher learning, work at a U.S. company or pursue other goals for a temporary period. In many cases, obtaining a non-immigrant visa is also the first step for a person who wants a green card — or ultimately U.S. citizenship.
At the Law Offices of Scott Warmuth, A Professional Corporation, our non-immigrant attorneys can assist you with applying for all manner of non-immigrant visas, including:

  • H-1B and O-1 visas for professionals and skilled workers in a variety of fields
  • L-1 visas for intra-company transfers sponsored by employers
  • EB- 1 and E-2 visas for entrepreneurs and investors
  • PERM Labor Certification


Deportation defense can impact green card holders, people with expired visas, and other undocumented peoples. If you have been convicted of a crime or were otherwise detected as being out of lawful status in the United States, you may be subject to deportation proceedings. For any situation involving a possible deportation, it is best to have an immigration attorney involved at the earliest stage possible. The Law Offices of Scott Warmuth can help fight deportation while also providing legal defense against non-finalized criminal charges. Our criminal defense attorneys and immigration attorneys work together to help minimize the impact any conviction will have on our clients’ immigration status.

Once a person has been detained by ICE or is placed in immigration detention, our deportation attorneys can request bond and help to have the detained person released as soon as possible. An experienced legal team is necessary in any immigration court proceeding to defend from removal and fight deportation.
