Many of our staff have been through an immigration process with their own families. This combination of both legal and personal immigration experience, means that we are uniquely qualified to help you navigate the complexities of the US immigration process.
Said & Associates are here to be your personal guide through the complexities of the US immigration system. "We want to be part of your Immigration journey” is the motto of our Founder and Principal, Naima Said. Providing fully comprehensive immigration law services for employers and individuals alike, our attorneys can advise you in all areas of business immigration including labor certification, how to obtain work visas for your employees, employment eligibility verification and any other issues which may pose a barrier to the operations of your company. We are also here to help you when you need to apply for a family visa, fiancé visa or immigration visa and will guide you through the various process of obtaining a green card for lawful permanent resident status.
It can be frustrating applying for a visa. The U.S. immigration system is comprised of a complex web of intricate laws and vast bureaucratic agencies, each with its own rules, regulations and policies. Said & Associates will help you manoeuvre comfortably through the red tape to bring about the best possible outcomes for you.
Our offices are located in Columbia, MD, but we work with clients throughout the United States and internationally. We provide bilingual services in Spanish, with translation in other languages available upon request.
