San Antonio-based managing partner Victoria Garcia leads Bracewell LLP’s ‘effective’ and ‘very knowledgeable’ immigration group, which is active for clients operating in the energy, technology and healthcare sectors. Garcia, who ‘is definitely the subject matter expert on immigration issues’ and is known for her ‘good bedside manner’, attracts praise for her ‘terrific knowledge of DHS regulations’. She delivers ongoing immigration advice on a variety of immigration matters to Valero Energy, Sirius Computer Solutions, CPS, Key Energy Services and ArjoHuntleigh, including non-immigrant visas, preparing applications for employment and family-based permanent resident and citizenship, compliance with I-9 and H-1B processes and E-Verify issues. In another matter for High Sierra Pools, in addition to preparing various applications, Houston-based senior counsel Nelli Nikova represented the client in objecting to an opinion letter by the Department of State that put pool management companies in the same category as staffing agencies, which negatively impacted the client’s ability to place summer workers through its J visa program.
