As stated by Director Alejandro Mayorkas, the goal of the EIR program is “to ensure that we capture the full potential of current immigration laws to attract and retain startup enterprises that promote innovation and create jobs in America…”.

M.H., Bangladesh (April 30, 2013). "“I am very happy that my long journey towards the green card finally ends here. You have always been courteous, friendly and professional. You always responded to my emails in a timely manner. Anytime I left you a voice mail, you called me right back. There has never been a lack of communication which I really appreciate. You also made me comfortable asking you any questions throughout the process. Any time I sent you something, you turned in around as quickly as possible. I could not have asked for anything more than the quality of service that you and your team provided. My wife and I would like to say thanks to you and your team members one more time. During my past 12 years in the U.S., I took help from numerous immigration attorneys and I can say without any hesitation that you and your team have been the best. If I ever come across someone seeking for immigration counsel, I will certainly refer to you. Thank you again."
