About Us

Finnan, Fleischut & Associates was founded in 1978 in Palo Alto, California. Our practice is limited exclusively to immigration law issues. Within this area, our primary focus has always been on temporary and permanent work-related visas and the development of cost-effective immigration strategies for individual, corporate and institutional clients.

Our clients include many leading high-technology and biotechnology companies and research organizations in Silicon Valley and elsewhere, and we regularly provide services for companies with offices and employees located throughout the U.S. and internationally.

We have solid working relationships with the various governmental agencies that administer the immigration laws, including the Immigration and Naturalization Service, the Department of Labor, and the Department of State, including U.S. consular offices abroad. Our aim in providing legal services to our corporate clients is to support their efforts to become more efficient and productive by providing rapid and accurate advice that will facilitate their efforts to hire the best workers the world has to offer.

We also provide a full range of immigration law services to families and individuals, including assistance with family petitions and family- and marriage-based immigration, and assistance with the naturalization process.

The firm currently includes two lawyers, each of whom has many years of experience in dealing with immigration and nationality law. Our attorneys are supported by paralegals, all of whom are university graduates knowledgeable in immigration procedures, and who can assist clients with day-to-day problems and questions as they arise.
