About Jay Terkiana

I am an Immigration Attorney based in Silicon Valley, California. I handle complex Employment, Business, Investment, Family and related immigration matters. I have successfully represented several individual & corporate clients in diverse immigration matters and have handled some of the most difficult immigration cases across nation. I never forget that I am an immigrant, who came to the United States as an F-1 student and had to navigate the entire immigration process myself when all the odds were stacked against me. Therefore, it’s not just business. It’s personal.

My practice primarily focuses on Employment/Business Immigration, Family Immigration, Complex Immigration Cases and related audits, investigations and litigation. I have assisted individuals, start-ups, small businesses and large corporations in successfully petitioning for employment-based immigration cases. I have assisted hundreds of clients in some of the most challenging immigration cases, where they were facing very complex issues like unlawful presence, out of status, deportation, inadmissibility, 3/10-year bar, criminal convictions with severe immigration consequences. In addition to immigrant & non-immigrant visas, my experience also includes answering Request for Evidence (RFE), assistance with 601 hardship & inadmissibility waivers, filing Motion to Reopen (MTR) or Appeal against the denials, assistance during Department of Labor/USCIS Site Visits, I-9 Compliance, Reinstatement of Status, LGBT Immigration Cases, U-Visas, VAWA, EB-5, O-1/EB-1A, handling Department of Labor (DOL) and Immigration Audits, and assisting in lawsuits arising from benching/back-wages claims.

Over the years I have developed a strong expertise in successfully handling some of the most challenging immigration cases, conducting compliance consultations, defending government audits and related litigation. Having personally gone through many of these critical processes & experiences myself, spending many years representing individual & corporate clients, and successfully handling thousands of immigration cases, I am confident that if you entrust me with the responsibility to handle your immigration case I will deliver the best.
