Korean Violinist Approved in time for Summer Season
Almost every year, we hear from musicians graduating from their university programs who want to file O-1 cases in time to perform during the summer. The required documentation for an O-1B is voluminous, the process time-consuming, and the logistics often complex. This year was no exception: our client, a Korean violist, wished to file the case, return home for a visit and get her approval in time to re-enter the U.S. However, we were able to file efficiently, and our client is playing in several ensembles around the country this summer.

Recent Case Successes
After two years of our continued oversight and follow up, the U.S. Embassy in Korea granted our client's employment-based petition.
Our client entered the U.S. on a fraudulent passport, and returned it to the supplier without keeping a copy of it. We had to prove that he was inspected and admitted into the U.S., not an easy feat when the only piece of evidence proving so is gone.
Our client was a scientist who had to leave the U.S. because he was not selected in the H-1B lottery. He explored the idea of an O-1A with his potential employer, and we went ahead with the case.
