Colorado Immigration Lawyer Businesses and Employees Depend On

Helping businesses and employees through the immigration law process

At The Law Firm of Timothy R. Bakken, P.C., we have 20 years of experience helping employers resolve their immigration issues in a wide range of industries, including research, finance, information technology, telecommunications, healthcare, and oil and gas. Whether you are hiring an employee from overseas, are concerned about complying with the regulations and guidelines outlined by the Immigration and Nationality Act (INA), or have concerns about navigating through the complex U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) process, our firm has a proven record of securing non-immigrant, temporary employment visas and other business visas. We have also helped many foreign national workers obtain legal permanent resident status and “green” cards, or apply for naturalization of U.S. citizenship.

We are experienced and fastidious attorneys devoted to finding a solution that helps our clients achieve their goals of either living permanently in the United States or working here temporarily, including assisting with dependent green cards and visas for spouses, including same-sex spouses, and children.  We are knowledgeable in non-immigrant temporary employment visas and immigration matters involving:

  • B-1 visitors for business and B-2 visitors for pleasure
  • E-1 treaty trader and E-2 treaty investor
  • F-1 academic student and F-2 for the spouse or child of F-1
  • H-1B specialty occupations
  • H-1C nurses working here for up to three years
  • H-2B temporary or seasonal workers: skilled and unskilled
  • J-1 exchange visitor
  • L-1A executive and managerial transferee visas
  • L-1B specialized knowledge
  • O-1 extraordinary ability in arts, education, business, sciences or athletics
  • P-1 athletes and group entertainers
  • TN NAFTA Professional (TN visas for Canadian and Mexican professionals)

Providing personalized and thorough attention to your unique immigration case
We meticulously assess your situation to provide you with an individualized strategy that meets your needs. Every visa comes with its own set of essential criteria, which your qualification must match precisely. Mistakes on your application can mean delays or even denial. That is why it is necessary to recruit an experienced immigration attorney who can gather the documentation and evidence that supports your eligibility. Because immigration laws regularly change, we are dedicated to maintaining and deepening our knowledge so you can advance smoothly through USCIS’s complex visa process.

Experienced Colorado attorney helping you maneuver through the red tape
Even if your business has just one employee, you are required to comply with INA requirements on employment eligibility. The Department of Homeland Security (DHS) enforces INA provisions addressing employment eligibility, employment verification and nondiscrimination. And the consequences of an employer unknowingly hiring unauthorized workers or failing to properly complete and retain an Employment Eligibility Verification Form, commonly known as a Form I-9, can include criminal charges and penalties.

We can thoroughly examine acceptable forms of documentation, confirm your employees’ citizenship or eligibility to work in the United States, and help you conduct self-audits of your I-9s each year to ensure they been completed accurately. We also provide you with personalized immigration counsel so you can take proactive measures against discrimination lawsuits arising from improperly handled I-9 forms under the Immigration Reform and Control Act of 1986 (IRCA).
