Spencer Larche, Immigration Attorney

I am an attorney whose practice is focused on both family and business immigration. I have significant experience aiding business clients with the preparation of various non-immigrant, employment visa petitions, including those in the H-1B (professionals), H-2B (temporary/seasonal workers), E-1 / E-2 (treaty traders/investors), L-1A (intracompany transferees), J (exchange visitors), and R (religious workers) categories. I also regularly advise clients on PERM processing with the Department of Labor and employment based green cards in the EB-1, EB-2, and EB-3 categories.

For my individual clients, I assist them in obtaining visas, permanent residence, and citizenship, among other things. I have experience with non-immigrant visa petitions, including those in the B-1/B-2 (business/pleasure), F-1 (student), and K (fiancée) categories, and immigrant visa petitions, including adjustments of status, VAWA petitions, and extreme hardship waivers. I have also represented individuals in removal proceedings.

I am a member of the American Immigration Lawyers Association (AILA) and am licensed to practice law in Alabama, Mississippi, and Wisconsin.
