Green Cards For Athletes In New Jersey

Lee & Garasia, LLC: Experienced Edison Immigration Lawyers For Athletes

Our office also specializes in the exponentially growing field of visas for Mixed Martial Artists and Brazilian Jiu-jitsu Athletes. Known as The Black Belt Immigration Lawyer™,Mr. Lee has been the attorney of choice for several world class fighters and gyms for their U.S. immigration needs, both locally and internationally. If you are a foreign national who excels in either of these sports, or a school owner in need of counsel to sponsor somebody of this caliber, our firm can assist you in filing the necessary paperwork.

Because immigration law is federal in nature, our office can handle your matter no matter where you are, whether you are in New Jersey, California, or Brazil. Mr. Lee will personally consult with you or the candidate to review his/her athletic accomplishments and recommend the most appropriate classification in line with the individual’s skill set. Just like the other areas we practice, this is a very personalized service. Mr. Lee handles and prepares these cases himself and can help you achieve your immigration aspirations, whether they be an O or P visa or permanent residence.

Green Cards For Athletes In New Jersey

While we most frequently work with mixed martial artists and Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu competitors, we can handle any type of professional visa within the sporting industry.

O and P work visas as well as EB-1 and National Interest Waivers for mixed martial artists and Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu fighters require intimate knowledge and understanding of the sport. Because these disciplines are still relatively new and not as recognized as America’s favorite pastimes such as football or baseball, the attorney must be able to convey the significance of the sport as well as your own merits. Attorney Lee holds a 3rd Degree Black Belt in Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu under living legend Renzo Gracie and 5th Degree Professor Rolles Gracie. He has inside knowledge of the sport, having trained with some of the best athletes and instructors in the world. While he is not a professional UFC fighter or ADCC Medalist, he can bring his formidable skills and technical expertise to fight for you in this arena.  Some of his notable clients include several members of the Gracie family, several UFC coaches, Vale Tudo legends Jorge Macaco Patino and Luiz Azeredo, as well as prominent luminaries of the modern grappling scene including IBJJF and ADCC Champion Ffion Davies; ADCC Champion Matheus Diniz; IBJJF World Champion Emily Kwok; and ADCC Veteran and New Wave standout Oliver Taza.
