About Us

Michael Work & Associates was established in 1988 first opening offices in Los Angeles, with our Miami Beach office opening in 2001. The firm has extensive experience representing aliens with “extraordinary abilities” in the arts, athletics, business, entertainment, and the sciences, and has represented many individuals, foreign investors, traders, and multinational corporations with various immigrant and nonimmigrant visa matters, including employment-based nonimmigrant visa petitions (e.g., H-1B, E and L visas), family-based visa petitions and PERM-based immigrant petitions.

Our Practice Areas

Michael Work & Associates represents foreign nationals and companies to plan, petition, and gain entry to the U.S. for a multitude of purposes on a temporary or permanent basis.

Extraordinary Ability

Our attorneys have extensive experience filing extraordinary ability petitions in the sciences, arts, education, business, athletics, motion picture and television industry.


Naturalization is the process to become a U.S. citizen if you were born outside of the United States. If you meet certain requirements, you may become a U.S. citizen either at birth or after birth.

Permanent Residence

We assist intended employers and individuals in the planning, documenting, labor certification, petitioning, and final permanent residence granting process in all employment and family based categories.

Nonimmigrant Visas

Those that wish to enter the US temporarily must utilize a “nonimmigrant visa”. The types of visas are for various defined temporary purposes identified by letters “A” to “V”. Temporary may be as short a time as one day, or for a number of years depending on the particular category.

Looking for an immigration lawyer / firm is not an easy task for anyone. I was lucky that a friend highly recommended Michael Work after I’ve talked to 3 firms. Since the first contact I felt confident with Michael and Luca, just how they explained everything in the process, assessed the case and clarified my doubts. I couldn’t be more satisfied with their service. Every step of the process was extremely transparent, focused and they answer all the questions promptly. I am very glad I’ve found them and grateful for my Green Card process outcome. They have all my trust in future immigration processes. I extremely recommend Michael Work & associates, and I hope everyone that contact him will achieve the same success level I achieved.

Michael and Luca have been representing us for the last 7 years, and they have been nothing but stellar! My journey went from extending my O1 Visa (as a professional classical musician), to Permanent Residency, to Citizenship, which has been a life long dream. Their level of communication was always outstanding: respectful, kind, very professional, and described expectations super clearly at all times. They truly are mindful of your personal situation and they advise accordingly. Our questions were always answered promptly. My spouse and I have been prepared by Michael and Luca every step of the way, to feel fully confident and that requires lots of trust. We have placed our trust in them entirely and they went above and beyond. Words will never describe the gratitude we have towards them both for all of the guidance and warmth they provided during this entire process! (which requires much patience, tenacity and focus). Their representation was done 100% remotely, and we had zero concerns. Cannot recommend Michael and Luca enough!! They truly are, the best of the BEST!

I am extremely satisfied with how Michael Work and his team prepared my case! He worked with me first to receive my O1 visa, then he also represented me in the process to become a Permanent Resident. Michael and his team have the highest level of professionalism, and their knowledge on specific details based on each individual case is amazing! As I already mentioned, Michael and his team helped me to receive my O1 visa, and also the Green Card. I also know few other friends who worked with Michael, and they all had successful experiences. I highly recommend Michael and his team and if I would have to chose again someone to represent me it would always be him!

I had an amazing experience with Michael and his team! They helped us to prepare such a strong case, that my marriage based permanent residency got approved in just two month after filing and without the interview! Michael’s approach is very professional, and he is always there to answer any questions or explain how everything works. I highly recommend Michael Work & Associates for stress-free and smooth immigration.
