Client Successes


Ms. Ames has successfully worked with clients in the 65 industries listed below.  Whether the client has won a Grammy, holds Chevalier status, or is newly graduated with a Bachelor of Arts degree, she works on an one-to-one basis with the client to present the strongest case possible.  (The Office’s victories include an 18-year O-1 applicant; an art consultant who has skills in six disciplines and recent undergraduate students, among others.)

Ms. Ames’ strategy to win her client’s case is based around five principles:

  1. Being a responsive, conscientious and approachable attorney.
  2. Communicating frequently with clients, whether in person, on Skype, phone or email, and striving for same day response.
  3. Helping clients identify their professional/personal goals and creating a plan to achieve them that is consistent with their visa status.
  4. Streamlining the visa process to efficiently compile the client’s case.
  5. Yet, if Ms. Ames believes a client is not eligible for a visa category, she will suggest ways that the client may become qualified in the future, if possible.
