Nina Juncewicz, Esq. has 25 years experience in representing those internationally seeking to obtain physical access to the United States market for commercial work and/or family reunification. Her experience was developed early as an outstanding scholar for the agency formerly known as INS at the U.S/Canadian border, and later in its Buffalo District Office’s litigation Department. This experience brought her first-hand knowledge of the technical nuances of complex U.S. immigration law and the government adjudication process which experience she uses for her client’s benefit. She later practiced business and family Immigration in a statewide corporate law firm before opening her own private practice, as a successful Women and Minority Owned Business Enterprise to which she serves as principal.

Her practice includes representing multi-national companies, health care institutions, universities and a multitude of other industries, as well as families with their immigration needs. Nina is proficient in securing H-1B, O-1, TN & L-1 visa and obtaining permanent resident status on behalf of her clients. She also has a robust practice representing those who wish to reside in the U.S. based on family ties, including those foreign nationals who have or will marry U.S citizens making them beneficiaries of I-130 Petitions or fiancé visas.

Representing foreign physicians with their unique immigration needs has also been a distinct practice field of experience for Nina. This includes her critical understanding of 212(e) restrictions, waivers to those restrictions, USMLE requirements and equivalent certifications needed to practice medicine in the United States, especially for those with Canadian training.

Simply put, Ms. Juncewicz navigates the U.S. Immigration system with the considerable knowledge earned by her years of practice experience which benefits her clients.

Legal Answers
2 Questions Answered
Q. Is the below ask for damages for valid for H1B person. It was signed when I was in my country
A: The answer to this question would partly depend on the US state which governs employment and that states common or statutory rules on recouping liquated damages to which the US immigration law defers.

This is meant to set you on the right track, and not as comprehensive legal advise.
Q. FI STEM extension going to expire but didn't receive the receipt yet. Can you work on expired EAD and endorsed I-20
A: Please check the code on your EAD card as the following categories are generally eligible le for 180-day automatic extension are A03, A05, A07, A08, A10, C08, C09, C10, C16, C20, C22, C24, C31, and A12 or C19. The eligible categories are published on the USCIS Automatic EAD Extension page.

This should not be considered as legal advise and no attorney client relationship is created from this general information. '

I am happy to discuss further should you wish to contact my office.
