About me

Jill Marie Bussey leads Goel & Anderson's Global Immigration Practice, overseeing the development of project and individual case strategies to address the recruitment and transfer of human resources throughout the world. In this role she manages the visa and work permit needs of international professionals, managers, and executives. This area of her practice focuses on developing strategic relationships with a deep network of attorneys across the globe to develop highly specialized nonimmigrant and immigrant visa programs that address both long-term and short-term business needs. She works closely with clients to identify and advise them on matters of compliance, emerging trends and the potential implications on their business. She is adept at developing strategies to address unique immigration requirements for expatriates, including: U.S. permanent residents and dependents accepting long-term assignments abroad; accessing citizenship status to facilitate family-based immigration; and managing multiple destination assignments.

With over a decade of experience in business immigration spanning a broad sector of industries including Fortune 500, government and private sector commercial entities, as well as non-governmental organizations, Jill has a deep understanding of the multiple drivers and participants involved in the immigration process. In addition to her Global Immigration experience, Jill gained extensive experience with U.S. immigration matters while she served as an attorney for a multi-practice global law firm in Washington, D.C. Jill's background in business law has made her particularly adept at advising organizations undergoing corporate changes and expansion to the U.S. She is experienced with all aspects of U.S. business immigration including nonimmigrant and immigrant categories and is an effective advocate for clients facing agency backlogs and challenges with issues related to their immigration status.

Jill is active in her community and serves as Vice President of the Board of Directors for FIRN, a non-profit organization that serves the foreign-born community in Central Maryland.
