TN Visa Lawyers in Denver

Even though Canada and the United States share a border and have a very friendly relationship, Canadians still need a work visa to work in the United States like any other foreign national. However, Canadians have the option of applying for a TN visa, which is like a fast-track option for a work visa for the United States. The TN visa is referred to as a fast-track option because it can be applied for at the United States border and doesn’t require a lengthy processing time like many other visas. TN Visa Lawyer 300x286 TN Visa Lawyers in Denver

Please note that even though a TN visa is considered a “fast-track” option for working in the United States, this does not mean that it is easier to apply for than other visas. In fact, being able to apply for one at the border means you should be even more careful to ensure you are prepared for one, because you could very well be denied for a TN visa on your way to start your job in the United States.

“Hi Michael,
I wanted you to know that we are grateful for your help regarding Shannon’s “TN” visa.  She applied at the Sarnia border on Friday at about 3:30 P.M. The first decision was yes until they realized that Shannon had been denied at the Rainbow Bridge. They would not over-rule that decision until they realized that she had up-dated documents which provided further information. This is what saved her!  Shannon flew to California on Saturday and started her new job today! We just wanted to say Thank You and felt this info might be useful in the future. Please tell Stacey we also appreciated her hard work. Thanks again.”
Pat Koebel

Any case for your future clients just mention one of my clients Allan he never gave up and just for you Michael I’ve hit the jackpot “work-wise”, I’ve found a good company and every thing fits.

I just wanted to thank you both so much for all your hard work this past week. I was granted my TN status at the 1,000 island port today. I really appreciate it, and I know that I couldn’t have done it with you. Thanks again.  Cheers from Alabama!”

Thank you for all of the hard work, and assistance you provided in putting together my TRP and Work Permit Applications. Honestly, I felt your services were worth every penny. I have no complaints.

First of all, thanks for your help with my E Visa. All went well and I am back at work.  Yes, I definitely want to go on with the Green Card. The only problem is that some of the documents requested as evidence are in the possession of my former lawyer. I will try to get as many of them as I can and contact you. Thanks again to you, Marianna and Stacey. You guys were great!”
