Welcome!

At the Law Offices of James D. Eiss, we focus our practice on employment-based immigration law. We represent U.S. companies seeking to employ foreign nationals, as well as representing foreign nationals seeking work-authorized status in the U.S. We assist with everything from temporary work visas, to permanent residence, to U.S. citizenship.

We are located in Buffalo, NY, right next to the Canadian border, and frequently accompany Canadian citizens in person at the Peace Bridge port of entry when they seek admission to the U.S. to work under NAFTA. Often our Canadian clients come to us after being refused admission to the U.S. While not every denied case can be rehabilitated, many can, and we frequently assist people in better documenting and explaining their eligibility for admission to the U.S. We have a very high success rate with the cases that we do choose to take.
