Julie Pearl founded the firm with Alan Nelson, former Commissioner of the U.S. Immigration and Naturalization Service (now USCIS), in 1995. Since then, the firm has attracted its prestigious corporate client base the old-fashioned way—by doing it better, faster, smarter—and always keeping true to the aim of being the business immigration firm of choice.
From the outset, we’ve been making it on our merits by being innovative, resourceful and reliable. Within three years of our founding, we developed ImmigrationTracker™, the immigration management system now used by over 75% of top immigration law firms who buy case management software (according to IndUS Business Journal and American Lawyer Media), as well as many Fortune 1000 companies, hospitals and universities. And we continually devote extensive resources to staff training and developing the new tools, technology and systems needed to deliver unparalleled customer service in our field.
Our Core Values: Global Reach + Personal Touch
Pearl Law Group provides world class resources with the devotion of a local boutique firm. With a practice of 30 professionals devoted to business immigration, we are large enough to have the best resources available—including technology, legal update services, an array of immigration program management tools—yet small enough to be nimble, responsive and free of bureaucracy. Our credo is:
In the Quest for Quality, There is No Finish Line
We emphasize the can-do approach to business immigration law—we know how to expedite matters and we explore all legal and safe options for clients.
We are a single point of contact for quality worldwide immigration services, and deliver reliable results for all international locations. We manage the process, including all foreign agencies and service providers, and billing. Our Global Reach extends to immigration experts in more than 100 countries and is maintained through our firm’s Global Immigration Management Team and the collective power of the Alliance of Business Immigration Lawyers (ABIL).
We provide resources for employers to manage global immigration efficiently. Instant access to all case details is available in one online location through our Tracker system. We can also give you detailed summaries of requirements, fees, contacts and other information for each key country in which your company operates. Our free online resource, Visa Needed?, allows you to research travel requirements (visas, vaccinations and needed documents) worldwide, 24/7 without charge. And there are many resources that we offer clients free of charge!
Most of all, we are known for truly partnering with our clients. Recognized for our responsiveness, we always return calls and emails promptly (usually within a business day for less sensitive matters, and almost immediately for urgent matters.) We share more free legal information and advice than any other firm we know, including real-time case-progress updates and do-it-yourself reports of case turnaround times. However, innovation aside, we still espouse the old-fashioned way of building up trust—day by day.
