About me

The JEELANI LAW FIRM, PLC provides legal services to businesses and individuals throughout the U.S. in immigration matters, and throughout Michigan in civil matters. Our business practice includes representation in commercial transactions, strategic business formations, day-to-day legal counsel, and representation of small businesses and startup organizations in a variety of other matters.  We also provide corporate immigration services including the representation of businesses and employees when filing L1A/B Petitions, H1B petitions, and Permanent Labor petitions.  In the case of investors who wish to receive status as an E1/E2 Treaty Trader/Investor or an EB-5 Investor, our firm can help you structure a qualifying investment.  Additionally, we litigate immigration cases dealing with delayed adjudications as well as appellate matters before the U.S. Federal Courts, U.S. Immigration Courts, USCIS and the BIA.


If you are a U.S. business entity interested in hiring foreign labor, or if you are a foreign employee of a U.S. business entity, you may have already realized how detailed and demanding the process can be.  Often, businesses either attempt to file employment petitions themselves, or they utilize the services of inexperienced attorneys.  Given the complex nature of foreign employment petitions, inexperience can lead to many mistakes which will result in delays, denials, and loss of filing fees and valuable time.   Let our experienced attorneys help you navigate through this process so that you can spend your time focusing on what matters most to you: your business.


Contact our office so that we can help you make sense of what can and needs to be done.  We will be there to represent you throughout the entire process.
