Immigration Law

With special emphasis on Investment Based Immigration.

Although the Firm has extensive experience in all aspects of immigration law, it is particularly versed, and has developed a winning track record, in the area of investor visas, including EB-5 visas and Regional Center formation and representation.

Ryerson & Associates has had broad experience in all facets of immigration law. As a client, you will benefit from a tremendous base of knowledge, expertise, talent and experience handling all aspects of American immigration and nationality law. From people who have, as the saying goes: Been there. Done that.

Our founder, Carlos Ryerson, developed the Firm’s immigration practice as an important complement to its international practice. We represent clients before the United States Citizenship and Immigration Service (USCIS) and provide guidance in matters relating to work visas, naturalizations, family and investment based immigration, asylum and other cases.

Although the Firm, together with associated counsel, handles all types of immigration matters, it specializes on the following types of visas and matters:


  • L-1 (Intra-Company Transferees)
  • E-1/E-2 Treaty Trader & Investor
  • NAFTA Visas
  • F-1 (Student Visas)
  • B-1/B-2 (Business/Visitor Visas)
  • Extensions of Stay in the U.S.
  • Changes of Status

Immigrant Visas (Green Cards)

  • EB-5 Visas
  • EB-1 Visas
  • EB-3 Visas

Regional Centers and EB-5 Projects

The Firm has been successful in representing clients in the establishment of Regional Centers in Texas and California (100% approval rate), as well as representing developers and companies in conforming their projects to the EB-5 visa requirements, including the preparation of all corporate and offering documents relating to such projects. The Firm has also represented Regional Centers in their legal matters after formation and approval of Regional Center status by the USCIS.

Because United States immigration laws are federal in nature, Ryerson & Associates is able to provide legal services to clients located anywhere in the United States and throughout the world. Call us at (713) 291-9122 to schedule a consultation today.
