Immigration is the American way and keeps our country strong by the positive contributions of our immigrant business owners, professionals, advocates, and community leaders. That’s why it is a great honor for me to represent and advise immigrants, businesses, and employers nationwide.

I am an immigration attorney, strategist, and advocate who can help U.S. businesses cut through immigration red tape and execute leading edge hiring strategies to win the global competition for top talent, highly qualified immigrants get legal residence in the United States to achieve their professional, business, and personal goals., and families unite together and settle in the United States.


Since 1993, thousands of clients have sought my assistance with complex immigration rules so they could avoid the missteps that can delay or even cause denial of their applications. With my unique Immigration Made Easy program, my clients can focus on personal and business goals, rather than worry about immigration problems.

To keep my clients well-informed about constantly changing immigration laws, I offer educational seminars and workshops, blog and social media updates, weekly and monthly news blasts, and videos. I have written dozens articles about immigration, hosted a television program called “Immigration Matters,” appeared on the national and local radio and television, and authored a book on immigration for physicians entitled “Immigration Prescription: The Practical Guide to US Immigration for Foreign Born Physicians.”

Exceptional - Highly Recommend
I was strongly recommended by my brother-in-law as he got his EB1 thru Ann Badmus. Today, I had an initial evaluation and I was completely satisfied with her professional experience and recommendations provided. She did answer all my questions from all aspects. I am very hopeful that Ann Badmus will help me accomplish my O1 to EB1A journey with her exceptional experience.

Diligent, meticulous, and excellent service.
Ann Badmus, Celsa and team supported my immigration application process in a highly professional & effective manner. I first talked to Ann Badmus after a recommendation from a family friend who had worked with her and I followed this up with an excellent phone interview. She offered highly detailed advice and strategy before I retained her services. From the beginning Ann was proactive in providing reliable feedback and answers to questions in a timely fashion. Ann has an encyclopedic knowledge on all immigration matters especially for physicians. The book author : Ann Massey Badmus The Immigration Prescription: The Practice Guide to U.S. Immigration For Foreign Born Physicians Highly recommend Badmus attorney group to others based on my experience as a client.

The Real Deal - no really!!
In 2012 I consulted with Attorney Badmus regarding a complex immigration application. She guided me through it and I was able to own a business while on a visa in the US. We worked on multiple applications over the years including an EB5. When USCIS pushed back on our EB5 we did not take 'no' for an answer and worked harder on the case. She was excellent and compassionate.

Successful EB-1A with Badmus and associates
It has been an excellent experience working with Ms. Badmus and her team. They were prompt in preparing a petition on my behalf and made an excellent case with evidence for 8/10 criteria and was able to obtain EB-1A I-140 approval within 10 days of filing the petition.

My EB1A green card journey
Ann Massey Badmus is well-known for her track record of success with EB1A and O1 cases. She prepared an exceptional case for an EB1A for me in record time and got an approval without an RFE in 13 days! Her entire team deserves kudos for terrific communication and customer service.

My GC journey
Although I have only taken telephonic consultations with Ms. Badmus, I say that she is a very competent and responsive. I was in distress twice during my Green Card journey. Once, when I had to justify my spouse and children lawful stay in the states and my regular attorney was not very comfortable replying to the RFE. Ms. Badmus drafted an appropriate response and my lawyer was open enough to incorporate Ann Badmus's draft, in the response. The second time I was in doubt if I need to apply for the J supplement (AC 21) and could not find an appropriate answer anywhere, my own attorney being unaware of this, since mine was a self petition EB1A. The answer was clearly found only on Ann Badmus web site. Someone who is so through and good has to be an exceptionally talented and qualified individual. She is highly recommended for all immigration needs and I can say with confidence that your expectations would be met to perfection.

They guided me through the nuances of my case and gave me sound advice at every junction of the process. The team is friendly yet professional and always courteous.

Immigration Application
I am a physician, recently worked with Ann M. Badmus and her colleague Celsa-Story for my H1B and my EB1 application. During my initial consultation, all the steps involved in this process were clearly explained to me and all questions were answered. I felt confident that they would do a good job, and decided to hire them. They were prompt and very thorough with all the paperwork and made sure everything was perfect. I would recommend them highly for any immigration-related work.

Excellent Team !!
Thanks to attorney Ann Badmus and her team, I really appreciate Ann for helping me out in getting O1 visa when my J1 waiver got rejected. She suggested me to file EB1 after the approval of O1. Due to her hard work my EB1 got approved even before J1 waiver approval. Her team had been always very prompt in answering any questions. They always gave their honest opinion. They are very knowledgable and up to date with current immigration laws. They have very good protocols in place. They guide at each step. And above all they are very approachable and easy to work with. Now I got my green card!! Thanks to Ann and Celsa.

Prompt
My immigrant visa was processed within a year. Though with some hurdles it was a pretty easy process. I was assigned a Paralegal who gave excellent service. She was very polite and respectful. I loved how she sent those reminders regarding documents which should be submitted. I also liked how from the beginning I was informed about the entire process with timeframes. I would recommend Ann Badmus and her team to my friends and family. I plan to make her my lawyer during further immigration applications.
