MARCOUILLER LAW, PS is a law firm providing custom immigration solutions for businesses and families. We don’t hire large numbers of temporary paralegals to mass process forms. We employ over 24 years of experience dedicated 100% to immigration and nationality law to give you the most thorough analysis and detailed case preparation. What’s more, you may also benefit from our background in international business, like one of our recent clients from Europe whose employer had received a Request for Evidence on his case. The employee came to Ms. Marcouiller who determined based on her international business background that the term “Engineer” was being used as a title not an area of study causing USCIS confusion about the employee’s education. There were other issues including experience at companies that had been acquired, which also caused confusion. Marcouiller prepared a detailed response addressing each issue raised, including 216 pages of evidence, and sent it to the employer’s attorney at the firm in Chicago to submit. The petition was approved in a matter of a couple days.
Ms. Marcouiller is licensed to practice law before the United States Supreme Court, the Federal Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit, Federal District Court for the Northern District of Illinois, and the Federal District Court for the Western District of Washington, as well the states of Washington and Illinois (currently inactive due to presence in Washington).
We are very experienced with employment-based first preference and second preference with national interest waiver applications for outstanding researchers and professors, scientists, medical researchers, multi-national executives, artists, and more, as well as PERM applications for high-tech workers, all aspects of family based immigration, naturalization, nationality, and temporary visas including H1B, H4, O1, L1, TN, B2, H3, and F.
