LAW OFFICE OF MAIER NEGUGOGOR, LLC
My law practice is focused exclusively on Immigration and Nationality law. Over the course of my career, I have developed expertise in filing employment based visas for clients, including obtaining green cards through the PERM labor certification process, EB-1 visa for multinational managers and executives, and EB-1 visa for individuals with extraordinary ability, including internationally renowned artists, athletes, and researchers.
My interest in immigration law stems from my family background. I am a first generation American. My father is Spanish/Basque, and my mother is Chinese/Indonesian. My father came to the U.S. on a work visa to play Jai-Alai, a sport that originated in the Basque region of Spain. After waiting many years, my father eventually received his green card through employment.
I decided to become an immigration lawyer because I remember the difficulty my parents faced trying to obtain their green cards. I remember the worry I felt as a child that our family would be forced to leave the U.S., the only place I called home. Because of our lawyer, we did not have to leave, and I became the first person in my family to go to college. I received my law degree in 2006 from Quinnipiac University School of Law magna cum laude. Today, I am in the fortunate position of being able to help other families just like my own.
