Jackson Hertogs Jackson Hertogs Immigration Law – A San Francisco immigration law firm


"Imperfect though we may be, I believe we are a great country... And part of what makes us great are our democratic institutions that protect our fundamental ideals — freedom of religion and the rule of law, protection from discrimination based on national origin, freedom of the press, and a 200 year history as a nation built by immigrants."

-Kamala Harris, 2/16/17

Our client portfolio ranges from large multi-national companies to recent startups and individual entrepreneurs. With our main focus being corporate immigration, we typically represent employers seeking to hire and retain foreign national personnel for professional, managerial and executive occupations. Services include the preparation and filing of various work visas (e.g., H-1B, L-1, TN, E and O-1) and “green card” applications (e.g., PERM, Outstanding Researcher, Extraordinary Ability and National Interest Waiver). We also provide guidance, development and execution of corporate immigration benefits programs. Our commitment to clients does not end with our securing a nonimmigrant visa status for an employee—we partner with our clients to help to ensure continued work authorization and continuity in the immigration process. We provide advice on compliance issues regarding E-Verify enrollment, I-9 completion and retention and LCA and PERM documentation. In addition, we frequently represent individuals in family based visa petitions and on applications for naturalization and EB5 investor visas.
