Medical And Paramedical Professionals
At Maiona Ward Immigration Law, much of our practice involves supporting the immigration law needs of medical and paramedical professionals. Lawyers at our Boston law firm represent doctors, nurses, physical therapists and other medical professionals and paraprofessionals across the globe. Many need our help to work at hospitals and other health care and research facilities in the United States.
We are dedicated to providing these health care workers with cost-effective solutions and experienced legal guidance. We assist the human resources departments of various medical institutions and practices to guide them through the maze of immigration paperwork to prevent the loss of excessive internal work hours on these complicated processes. We work to achieve the best possible results for medical professionals.Immigration Options For Medical Professionals
