Joseph Atkin is passionate about helping to facilitate the worldwide migration of labor. That is an awesome and exciting responsibility, and one that he fully embraces.

When advising companies, Joe works hard to help them navigate a sometimes frustrating (and always complex) immigration system, enabling them to onboard key international talent quickly and efficiently. As companies grow, he helps them design and build robust immigration programs that run smoothly and are compliant. At the same time, he takes pride in being flexible and creative in figuring out the best way to quickly get a talented individual legally working in the U.S. He has worked with companies large and small in a variety of fields, including engineering, hardware/software, marketing, solar, education technology, biomedical, social networks, networking, big data, scientific & academics, IT, biotech, nano, and many others.

Joe counts it as an honor to work with the amazingly talented and intelligent people who he helps to stay and work in the U.S. A few examples of individuals he has helped obtain temporary visas or green cards include: outstanding researchers in both academia and industry; software developers and engineers; world famous chefs; eSports athletes; video game developers and artists; high level executives and managers in many fields; and serial entrepreneurs.

Joe takes pride in helping the world’s best and brightest talent stay in the U.S.
