Physicians & Health Care Workers

Our law firm represents over seventy (70) health care facilities across the U.S., primarily in the Northeast, assisting each facility in the myriad types of immigrant and nonimmigrant visa petitions and applications. More importantly, we provide each health care facility with big-picture, strategic workforce planning, while supporting each physician and nurse with the detailed individualized assistance required for each applicant’s specific set of circumstances.

We work closely with these health care facilities, and with each individual health care worker, to assure the smoothest transition through the complex process of visa applications, Department of Labor compliance, credentials evaluation, testing, licensing, and successful assimilation to working in the United States. The Curran, Berger & Kludt team takes pride in our specialized expertise in the unique challenges of physician and nurse immigration, working to ease the administrative burdens placed on human resources professionals and recruiters.

Our legal team understands the special challenges facing International Medical Graduates. We have decades of experience with all nonimmigrant and immigrant visa categories, National Interest Waivers, Conrad Waivers, Labor Certification, and all the related regulatory requirements, and we work with each physician to explore all the various options available to pave a smooth transition to employment authorization and secure visa status.
