Heather Frayre's practice focuses on immigration law, counseling clients on a full range of matters including non-immigrant visas, permanent residency and citizenship. She has extensive experience with a wide range of non-immigrant classifications, such as H-1B, L-1, TN, J-1, E, O-1, and P-1, among others. She also is well-versed in issues relating to employment-based and merit-based petitions, including PERM labor certifications, multinational manager petitions, extraordinary ability and outstanding professor and researcher petitions, and national interest waivers, as well as family-based petitions.

Heather’s corporate immigration experience spans a wide array of industries, including technology, athletics, manufacturing, construction, education and international trade. She has counseled large Fortune 500 companies, mid-sized companies and small business clients with immigration filings, consular and cross-border issues and compliance strategies. Heather also counsels individual scholars and athletes filing self-petitions, such as extraordinary ability or national interest waiver cases. While the bulk of Heather’s professional experience has been gained in the corporate setting, she began her career in nonprofit, primarily assisting refugees, victims of human trafficking and other crime victims in obtaining status or permanent residency.
