JEREMY RICHARDS is a licensed lawyer in the United States, and a Foreign Legal Consultant with the Law Society of Ontario, who devotes his legal practice to US Immigration Law and related matters. He has successfully handled immigration matters for businesses of all sizes and citizens from countries all over the world. He has a broad understanding of US immigration and nationality laws, and can assist with most US immigration law matters, having successfully handled immigration matters for medical professionals, students, professors, individuals, families, employees, small to large businesses, international corporations, colleges and universities, and others.

Prior to attending law school and obtaining his Juris Doctor degree, Mr. Richards spent more than 10 years in Sales and Operations Management, holding the titles of Vice President of Sales, Operations Manager, and Sales Manager. During his career in business, Mr. Richards became intimately familiar with human resource practices and the internal operations of both public and private corporations. Through this experience, Mr. Richards gained valuable skills that enable him to understand the needs of both employees and employers.

Additionally, Mr. Richards gained an inside perspective on the government interpretation and enforcement of the US Immigration and Nationality Act during an externship with US Customs and Border Protection in Buffalo, New York. Mr. Richards is actively involved in the community through ecclesiastical service, community service, youth sporting programs, and The Boy Scouts of America, and is an avid outdoorsman. He is an Eagle Scout, served a 2-year mission in Salvador, Brazil for The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints (aided by his proficiency in Portuguese), and is the proud father of seven children.

Although Mr. Richards can help with most immigration matters, he focuses his practice on business immigration, including:

  • TN Visa status for Canadians and Mexicans
  • L-1 Visas for business expansion
  • E-1 Visas for international businesses and traders
  • E-2 Visas for Investors
  • Green cards through employment
  • Family-based green cards
  • US citizenship

Very helpful and knowledgeable Green Card Attorney
We had a pleasure speaking to Jeremy for our case assessment. We had questions about US Green card from outside USA. He was very patient and went over all of our options and pros and cons. He went above and beyond in making sure we understand our situation. I would highly recommend him for immigration matters.

TN1 Visa Application
Jeremy and his staff were professional and very knowledgeable about the TN1 Visa application process. We applied for the TN1 Visa at the Fort Erie border but were rejected because the CBP claimed that I did not fulfull the requirements of a Management Consultant (although I did based on the USCIS requirements). We then applied via mail directly with USCIS and recieved approval within 2 weeks.

Had pleasant experience
I had pleasant experience with Jeremy two times for my TN Visa. He guided me to prepare the documentation from end to end and always available on phone when ever I had a query. He is always down to earth while talking unlike many others and always receive his customers with a beautiful smile on his face with lots of patience. Because of this quality I really like him personally. He provides great professional service to fulfill the needs of the customers. I strongly recommend him to take his service without any second thought. Ram

"I endorse this lawyer. Besides being brilliant, he has a solid background in the business world, which preceded his current law career. This is an invaluable asset for a business immigration lawyer. These talents are scarce---understanding immigration law while *also* understanding the business world. He is also of the highest moral fiber, which never hurts."
