Maria del Carmen Ramos, an immigration partner in our Tampa office, has received an AV® Peer Review Rating by Martindale-Hubbell after an extensive and confidential peer review by members of the Bar and Judiciary. As part of its legal review process, Martindale-Hubbell periodically and randomly conducts reviews on all lawyers in its directory in two key ways: (i) conducting reviews on randomly selected attorneys/judges and (ii) by surveying names of legal professionals that lawyers can nominate as references.
Maria devotes a substantial portion of her practice to counseling clients on immigration and related employment issues. In particular, Maria has extensive experience helping employers obtain H-1B and E visas, as well employment-based green cards, on behalf of foreign workers employed in specialty occupations. She also helps companies that have global operations obtain L-1 visas on behalf of their foreign-based employees so they can transfer to the United States. In addition to helping employers obtain visas for foreign workers, Maria routinely conducts audits for clients to ensure they are complying with their obligation to verify their employees’ eligibility to work in the United States.
Maria received her J.D. from The University of Miami School of Law and her B.A. from Yale University.
