U.S. and Global Business Immigration Solutions and Litigation


Marshall Taheri, an A-V rated attorney with more than 45 years legal experience to include U.S. and global business immigration solutions and litigation, is a former advocacy judge, and law professor emeritus.

In 1982, Professor Taheri was appointed by the Greater Houston Partnership to form an Ad Hoc Committee to study pending legislation before the United States Congress in Washington, D.C., and the impact of such legislation on the Houston economy. He submitted an oral presentation to the board members of the Greater Houston Partnership on the findings of the Ad Hoc Committee. Subsequently, he and the late Honorable Louie Welch, former mayor of Houston and then President of the Greater Houston Partnership, traveled to Washington, D.C., where Professor Taheri testified as an expert before the U.S. Senate Subcommittee of the U.S. Congress in Washington, D.C., in support of the pending legislation which subsequently became a law through unanimous vote by the U.S. Congress.

As a result of our firm’s growing number of international clientele, and in conjunction with our international practice, we also possess the expertise to represent our corporate, investor, professional, and individual clients in complex and routine immigration matters, to include obtaining nonimmigrant and immigrant visas (permanent residency), and U.S. citizenship. We provide comprehensive representation to our clients in all aspects of immigration matters to include U.S.M.C.A. professionals (formerly known as NAFTA professionals); treaty investors; treaty traders; people with extraordinary ability in sciences, arts, education, business or athletics; members of internationally recognized entertainment groups; and members of other international organizations recognized by the U.S.-international treaties.
