The Woog Law Office in Scotch Plains focuses on immigration and naturalization. We represent clients in employment and family-based immigration cases before United States Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS, formerly INS) and United States consulates abroad. As the managing attorney, Laurie Woog has extensive experience helping clients obtain temporary work visas such as H-1bs, L-1s and O-1s, and permanent residence—green cards—through labor certification/ PERM, religious work, extraordinary ability in the arts or sciences, national interest waivers, and outstanding researcher and professor cases. Laurie handles family immigration cases including applications for green cards based on marriage, including same sex spouse green card cases, extensions of status for visitors and students, E-3 visas for Australians, Deferred Action (DACA and DAP) and naturalization and citizenship.
