U. S. Immigration and Nationality Law
TDL focuses on employment-, family-, and investment-based visa petitions, as well as study abroad and tourist visas, treating every Client as our own family member, providing them with personalized, and top-quality legal advice and customer service.
Because we have offices in both the beneficiary’s and petitioner’s home countries, our Attorneys can answer questions relating to the local customs, norms, cultures, and environments. Moreover, our Attorneys are multijurisdictional and multicultural in both language skills and lifestyles. With such diversity, our Attorneys provide immigration and nationality legal services in:
- B-1/B-2 Visitor : B-1 – for Business / B-2 – for Pleasure

L-1 visas are available to executives, managers and specialized employees moving to their employer’s U.S. affiliate sites. Executives and managers with valid L-1 status may be eligible for permanent residency without the need for a labor certification.
- EB5 – Employment Creation Investors
With the 1990 Immigration Act, Congress has kept aside up to 10,000 visas per year just for alien investors in new commercial enterprises, who will create employment for at least ten individuals. There are two investor groups under the program – people who invest at least $500,000 in “targeted employment areas” (rural areas or areas experiencing high unemployment of at least 150% of the national average) and those who invest $1,000,000 in other areas. Not less than 3,000 of the annual allotment of visas in this category must go to the targeted employment areas.
