Dunbar Harder, PLLC provides immigration legal services through a team of outstanding professionals including senior attorneys, associate attorneys, legal assistants and administrative assistants. Since most of the firm’s services are billed on a fixed fee basis, adding personnel to a project enhances the speed and efficiency with which the service is delivered without increasing the cost to the client.
Attorneys review all communications and documents prepared by the legal assistant working on a particular matter. Utilizing this team approach we are able to quickly and efficiently provide the documents needed by the company on time or ahead of schedule.
Questions relating to immigration law may be presented by a company representative directly to an attorney by telephone or email. Clients also may relate questions to a legal assistant who will then consult with a DH attorney in order to provide a prompt, detailed response. Depending on the nature of the question being raised the senior attorney may assign an associate attorney to address it. Associate attorney correspondence relating to novel issues is reviewed and finalized by a senior attorney before it is sent to the company.
By utilizing a team approach to providing immigration legal services we are able to ensure continuous access to our immigration expertise and judgment while minimizing the cost of services to clients. Similarly, by working through a designated representative for corporate clients we can proceed with confidence that requested services are authorized by and in the best interest of the organization. When the organization and the alien employee are speaking with one voice, we can quickly perform our services and avoid misunderstandings concerning the legal services to be performed or the billing for the requested services.
Dunbar Harder, PLLC builds cost effective immigration solutions for clients based upon their particular needs. Whether our client is a multinational corporation or an entrepreneurial enterprise, we identify the immediate and long term immigration objectives and find the most efficient and cost effective solutions. For example, following a merger or acquisition, a U.S. affiliate of a multinational corporation may need to access key managerial and specialist talent from a parent company abroad in order to harmonize processes and transfer technology. This cycle causes a short term spike in international employee re-location costs that must be considered when determining the least expensive options allowing rapid access to vital personnel for short periods of time. We help companies successfully plan and adjust to such challenges. The immigration needs of each company and individual are unique. We encourage our clients to schedule a meeting with our attorneys to map out a global strategic plan to identify cost effective solutions for their immigration requirements.
All successful business relationships are based on successful personal relationships. Business relationships flow most smoothly when we work in a collaborative environment with a company’s Human Resources and Legal Department representatives to obtain immigration benefits, develop compliance programs and identify optimal solutions to legal issues. We maintain close working relationships with our counterparts within client companies.
We provide email communications to business representatives with news and updates concerning actual or proposed changes in immigration law, policy or procedures. These communications are designed to be direct, pertinent and current. We avoid distributing such materials in newsletter format. Newsletters, we believe, tend to contain too much filler and dated information. In contrast, an email alert notifies human resources professionals of current developments that may affect their employees or future immigration requirements without the need to wade through information only tangentially connected to corporate immigration law. When further information is requested, we are available to provide it.
