Innovative Strategies, Proven Results

Excellence in an immigration law firm is measured by its ability to serve its clients effectively and with integrity. Jeffries & Corigliano, LLP (formerly Stephen Jeffries & Associates) has developed an international reputation for successfully assisting its clients navigate through some of the most challenging areas of immigration law. With broad experience in O-1s, EB-1s, National Interest Waivers, H-1B visas, E1/2 visas, J-1 waivers and immigration petitions, our USA business immigration lawyers serve the needs of physicians, scientists, and business professionals.

Jeffries & Corigliano, LLP strives to provide superior service to our clients by closely monitoring immigration law as it shifts to reflect current bills, legislation and international trends. We consider each client’s specific long-term goals when crafting an immigration approach and ultimate strategy. The experienced attorneys at Jeffries & Corigliano, LLP are able to effectively frame and communicate complex cases in order to meet our clients’ goals. We are able to adapt easily and quickly to the individual challenges of each case. Jeffries & Corigliano, LLP is well positioned with a unique knowledge of immigration law, as we have watched this area change and evolve for over thirty-five years.

Founded in 1980, Stephen Jeffries & Associates (currently Jeffries & Corigliano, LLP) has focused the bulk of its practice on business immigration options for physicians and professionals such as researchers, engineers, business experts and others. Over the past thirty-plus years, our USA business immigration attorneys have procured thousands of successful EB-1 Extraordinary Ability and EB-2 National Interest Waiver immigrant petitions for clients, enabling these accomplished individuals to obtain permanent residency (green card) and ultimately citizenship in the United States. We have also procured thousands of O-1 approvals for our clients and believe that our specialized expertise and experience in these areas gives our clients the best chance for approval with such cases.

In addition to the above, we also focus heavily on options for J-1 physicians subject to the two-year home residency requirement. Our office has been extremely successful in securing J-1 waivers for physicians that do not wish to return to their home countries upon completion of their training, particularly waivers based on exceptional hardship to a qualifying U.S. citizen or Legal Permanent Resident spouse or child or waivers based on fear of persecution because of political opinion, religion or race. We also file a large number of Interested Government Agency Waivers under programs/agencies such as the Conrad State 30, Delta Regional Authority, Veterans Administration (VA), and Appalachian Regional Commission. Jeffries & Corigliano, LLP has also filed hundreds of successful extenuating circumstances H-1B transfers for those physicians whom experience problems or issues while completing a J-1 waiver obligation, enabling the physician to leave the waiver employer without losing the benefits of the waiver.

Our office, through expertise gained over three decades of immigration practice, can provide strategies and options for those reaching the limits of their H-1B status, either to extend their H-1Bs beyond the statutory six-year limit, or to convert to another status. We can also assist clients in dealing with the complexities of the H-1B cap and provide alternatives that would allow them to work if an H-1B is not an option. Alternatives could potentially include E-2, O-1, L-1A/B visas as well as immigrant options.

Our USA business immigration lawyers pride ourselves on providing our clients with strategies that will allow our clients to reach their career goals inside the United States.

Client Reviews

I was running out of H1B time and needed to extend my stay in the US. An MD friend who got his O visa, J1 waiver and eventually Green Card through Jeffries and Associates highly recommended them. Stephen reviewed my CV and gave me 3 different options when I thought I had none. Literally six weeks...
