(1) assisting international students with the transition from "student visa status" to an authorized temporary work status; obtaining authorized temporary work status for business men and women and international students; managing the permanent resident ("green card") application process for green cards based on family relationships, employment, or -- based on winning the DV (Diversity) Green Card Lottery! We also assist those immigrants who wish to seek U.S. Citizenship.
(2) We provide a full range of services related to deportation and removal cases; and the analysis of the consequences of criminal behavior on an individual's immigration status in the United States. Our group will make the very, very best out of a potentially very bad situation.
(3) The Immigration Law Group at Vandeventer Black was establish over 25 years ago. We started by helping international students on campus, and have grown to represent a wide range of clients across a wide spectrum -- from large corporations to small businesses; from college students to business leaders; from newlyweds beginning a life together in the United States to naturalized U.S. Citizen adult children sponsoring their aging parents for permanent residency.
We have handled cases in Norfolk, Virginia and all over the world. We have attended interviews in cities like Atlanta, GA; Detroit, MI; Philadelphia, PA; Washington, DC; Memphis, TN; Newark, NJ; Baltimore, MD; and Durham, NC. We have helped clients at U.S. Embassies in France, Vietnam, India, England, Ireland, Israel, Canada, Germany, China, and Brazil -- to name a few.
But no matter where we are, and no matter what we are doing, we will always remember where we started: with international students on campus -- first at Old Dominion University in Norfolk, Virginia, and then at colleges and universities all across the United States. Below is a scrapbook of some recent photos of attorney Art Serratelli (better known as "Immigration Art" on campus, and on Facebook, and even on Google!) doing one of the many things we enjoy -- meeting with students and helping untangle the seemingly endless web of U.S. immigration rules and regulations that could, perhaps, stand between those students and the American Dream (as they, and their families, envision it and pursue it). America still is that shining city on a hill. We see it reflected in the eager, hopeful faces of students each and every day.
