About me

I have been specializing in employment-based immigration law for 40 years. My business clients range from small startups to global corporations seeking to employ foreign talent here in the United States. I prepare nonimmigrant visa petitions, labor certifications, and green card applications for skilled workers, investors, entrepreneurs, multinational executives, key managers, and individuals of extraordinary ability. I also prepare family-based immigration petitions, including fiancé visas, naturalization applications, and green cards for relatives of U.S. citizens and permanent residents.

    Roy Watson is a superb lawyer. He has a deep knowledge of employment based immigration. He also has the vision and skills required to navigate his clients through the Kafkaesque world of the US immigration system. I highly recommend Roy Watson.
