Not everyone who comes to the United States intends to stay permanently. Many people come temporarily in connection with their business, job or profession. Whether they are business people, artists, exchange students, investors or athletes, they all need a non-immigrant visa in order to enter the U.S. At the Law Firm of Kurzban Kurzban Weinger Tetzeli & Pratt, P.A. we can help these individuals and their employers obtain the correct visa type for their stay in Florida or anywhere else in the U.S.
When an individual is accused of a crime in the United States, the U.S. Constitution guarantees them the right to an attorney. If the defendant cannot afford an attorney, the court will appoint a public defender at no charge to the defendant. But, immigrants in Florida who are detained by U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement and facing deportation proceedings have no right to a court-appointed lawyer. They do have the right to hire counsel at their own expense, but this is beyond the means of many detainees.
People in Miami and across the United States are paying close attention to presidential politics and the discussion regarding various agreements that the U.S. has with other countries for workers. One example is the North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA). With NAFTA, there are certain circumstances in which immigrants can come from Canada and Mexico with special treatment. Understanding this is important for companies and individuals who would like to have these workers come to the U.S. as well as for workers who would like to work in the U.S.
When heading out onto the road as a driver, bicyclist or pedestrian in Miami, there is always a danger of being in a crash.

Employment-based immigration is one of the most common ways for people to begin a new life in the United States. U.S. immigration law provides for a number of visa types that allow skilled workers and professionals to enter the U.S. One of the most popular is the EB-3 visa.
Too many Florida drivers don't see motorcycles until it's too late. There are fewer motorcycles on the road relative to the number of other vehicles, so many drivers don't anticipate seeing one. Motorcycles are smaller than cars or trucks, so they are sometimes harder to see. Blind spots - areas not covered by the mirrors - and obstructions such as pillars in cars can contribute to the problem. When glare or precipitation are present the risk of not seeing motorcycles is increased.
Many people in Florida are aware that for some time there has been a wave of people coming to the U.S. border from Honduras, Guatemala and El Salvador, some of the most violent places on earth. The migration peaked in 2014 when thousands of unaccompanied children crossed the border in Texas. Until recently, many were turned away and sent back to their home countries, often at great risk of being killed.
