Question about PWD in EB2 category for a legal/compliance job.

Asked over 1 year ago - Fairfax, VA

For a job in legal/compliance field, would the knowledge about appropriate laws/regulations considered a special skill if stated as a minimum requirement? Would it trigger a higher wage level in PWD in a Zone 4 job under a compliance category?

    Your employer needs to retain an experienced immigration lawyer to review all the facts, advise them, and handle the case. Your employer can find one through http://www.ailalawyer.com.

    Answered . It might. It depends on the job description and rest of the requirements. But I don't think applying with a Zone 4 job is a good idea for EB-2.
