in one of my previous startups (i guess after 17 years it's technically no longer a startup) a significant number of our team members were here in the US on visas (H1-b mostly) from India, Mexico, Singapore, Australia, New zealand, eastern Europe, etc.  I would estimate we sponsored visas for around 30 of our employees over several years, helped them with the green card process, etc.  We used a law firm in Chicago and they were quite good.  FD has a tendency to strip out contact info, but you can DM me for details.  the firm is Kempster, Keller & Lenz-Calvo, Ltd.  We worked most frequently with Cheryl Lenz-Calvo.

​Not completely clear on what you are looking for here. An attorney for immigration or for business or both? Also, select either in the US or somewhere else. e.g. I am in Canada and almost all business clients here are immigrants. But if you are looking for immigration to the US that is not what we do.
