DeWitt provides tailored immigration solutions for individuals who wish to live and work in the United States, along with businesses seeking to employ foreign nationals.  Clients rely on us for creative solutions beyond individual options, to guide them on legal immigration paths for family members, employees, and the families of employees.

We diligently prepare and file all necessary immigration forms and documents, following the specific legal and procedural requirements for each federal government agency.  We provide clear and detailed guidance to our clients regarding the documents and evidence required in support of their case.
