Miller Mayer immigration attorneys Rosanne Mayer and David Wilks were tasked with filing a petition for an O-1 nonimmigrant visa, under slightly unusual circumstances, for a person with extraordinary ability.

In this instance, the O-1 beneficiary owned the petitioning U.S. entity, rather than being simply employed by the company, as is usually the case. By providing good documents to show that the company was a legitimate corporate entity with other employees and contracts with clients, the O-1 petition was approved.
