Jewell Stewart & Pratt PC is a nationally-recognized specialty law firm. We practice exclusively in immigration and nationality law, with a strong emphasis on business- and employment-related immigration. We apply our expertise across practice areas for individuals and organizations, from early-stage and developed start-ups to established companies, and we do so across industries, from software development and biotech to education institutions and nonprofits.

In short, we are problem-solvers. We are as comfortable collaborating with C-level executives and outside counsel as we are working with employees and human resources professionals. Whatever your industry or position, we help you navigate the complex U.S. immigration system with empathy and understanding, coupled with sophisticated planning, strategy, and advice.
