About Me



Neil A. Weinrib & Associates is one of the leading law firms specialized in US immigration law. Located in New York City since 1978, our law firm has been committed for the past 30 years to providing foreign and domestic corporations as well as individuals with legal services tailored to their needs and requirements. The firm handles matters on a nationwide basis.




Our success is founded on our unique ability to devise creative, cost-effective and prompt solutions to a variety of immigration challenges. To provide the most effective immigration solutions, Neil A. Weinrib has adopted a coordinated team approach.


Each team is specialized in a particular area of immigration law and the team members provide an integrated support network to our clients. This approach allows each practice group of our firm to be fully informed about current and reliable immigration information. Legal updates and changes in procedure are then disseminated throughout the firm, guaranteeing a coordinated practice to maximize favorable results for our clients. Our services are always conducted in an environment of professionalism. Moreover, we believe in keeping the client informed at each and every step of the process. Neil A. Weinrib, Esq. is personally involved in coordinating the activities of the team.


Overall, the firm's approach is threefold:

· We thoroughly analyze the clients' needs, by evaluating both their short and long term goals;

· We rapidly determine the immigration solutions available within the existing laws and regulations;

· We guarantee diligence and professionalism through conscientious client follow-up. We recognize that immigration is time sensitive




We have extensive experience and have achieved unprecedented success in obtaining nonimmigrant visas and lawful permanent residence (i.e. Green Card), both in the areas of labor certification and job sponsorship.

We possess considerable expertise in regard to employer compliance with federal regulations and regularly handle matters on a nationwide basis and through US consular offices abroad.


Fast Track & Creative Solutions to Your Overseas Recruitment Issues:


We fully recognize that the recruitment of foreign professionals is often critical to the success of many forward-looking U.S. companies. Since the priority of companies is to recruit the most qualified candidates, our priority is to guide you through a rapid, painless and cost-effective immigration process. Our firm is committed to providing effective guidance with a view towards devising solutions in the most expeditious, accurate and efficient manner.


Speed & Cost:


We completely understand that time is "of the essence" in immigration matters. What distinguishes us from other law firms is our commitment to service and the ability to achieve the fastest possible "turn-around" time. More importantly, we provide premium legal services without charging premium legal fees. As to other areas of law, we provide an honest and "hands-on" approach toward protecting the rights of our clients.
