I am trying to find lawyers who have expertise in getting EB2 PERM applications approved for highly technical jobs in the field of IT, Human Computer Interaction, and User Experience Design in the mid-west area (Bloomington/Indianapolis). The lawyer handling my case does not have the right competency for getting the right prevailing wage from DOL. My current problem is that the DOL is quoting prevailing wage that is 20% higher than the wages in my area and in some cases more than salaries on the west coast. My employer is unwilling to offer a salary that is 20% higher than what they pay for political/legal reasons.
I really need to find a lawyer who has handled complicated IT job descriptions, got an acceptable wage, helped clients in passing labor test, and applied for I-140.
I file a lot of IT perm applications. Wages are an issue if the job requirements are overstated. After the DoL moved the processing of pwds to nationalized offices, it is a pain to correspond with them to change a pwd once issued. Only option is to refile a new pwd. We've also used private surveys, but I still prefer to go the normal route rather than respond to a DoL audit which will always come in if you use a private survey. Suggest you get a good lawyer to review the job requirements to wean out the "minimum" requirements and throw out everything else from the job description. In this way, you will get a more realistic pwd.
