Established in 1987 in Los Angeles, California, the Law Office of Michael I. Brooks has been serving diversified immigrant communities for almost two decades. The Chinese community, Korean community, and Indian communities constitute a large base of our clientele, although the firm has also represented clients from Thailand, Canada, England and Central America.
As part of our U.S. immigration practice, we represent multinational companies, recent start-up companies, and individuals seeking temporary working visas, legal residency, or citizenship in the United States. Our practice focuses primarily on employment-based immigration matters for business, professional, academic, and research oriented workers and family-based immigration.
Our immigration professionals have more than twenty five years of experience processing complex immigration law matters, immigration-related litigation and consular issues, including adjustment of status and consular immigration practice, extraordinary ability petitions for outstanding individuals, national interest waivers, intra-company transferee immigrant visas, labor certifications, visa lotteries, and fiance visas. More specifically, our firm handles all employment based immigration cases, including EB1 (Aliens of Extraordinary Ability, Outstanding Professor and Researchers, Multinational Corporate Executives), EB2 (National Interest Waivers, Alien of Exceptional Abilities) and EB3 (Skilled Workers, Registered Nurse, etc.), PERM Alien Employment Certification (AEC), and special handling for college teachers/professors. We also assist our corporate clients to retain qualified foreign nationals through H1B and O1 visas. For our multinational corporate executives, we assist them with L1 visas and subsequently obtain permanent residency. The firm also represents individual clients in family based immigration, asylum and immigration court appearance, BIA appeals, etc.
Most notably, our immigration professionals have successfully represented numerous Chinese students and scholars across the country in their immigrant matters. The firm continually seeks to improve on an already first rate reputation in helping Chinese students and scholars, as well as seeking to assist highly qualified foreign nationals from other countries, including India and Russia, in their efforts to obtain permanent resident status through EB11(Alien of Extraordinary Ability) and EB2(National Interests Waiver).
In addition, the firm provides a full range of legal services in the fields of personal injury law, employment law, civil and business litigation and family law. In personal injury matters, we have collected millions of dollars for our injured clients. In employment law, we have represented clients, with and without legal documentation to work, who have been the victims of various types of employer abuse. In the civil and business litigation areas, we have prepared contracts, incorporated businesses, and litigated a wide variety of business disputes. In the family law area, we have represented clients in dissolution of marriages, annulments, custody and support issues and adoptions.
Our service philosophy is simple. We partner with our clients to achieve the approval of applications and petitions from the USCIS and the Department of Labor as quickly and economically as possible. Our goal is to provide our clients with the shortest possible turnaround time–without compromising the quality of our work. We also utilize state-of-the-art technology in processing cases which provides updated case status information. Our corporate and individual clients have the option of being “web-enabled” so that they can know the status of their cases at any time.
