H-1B Visa Lawyers in Houston
We Keep You Informed Every Step of the Way
Each year, about 200,000 nonimmigrant workers apply for the H-1B visa. This visa is the most common type of work visa. The H-1B visa allows businesses in the U.S. to hire foreign national workers for up to six years. Those who obtain this visa will be permitted to live and work in the United States.
At Davis & Associates, we help companies hiring foreign talent and workers seeking employment visas. Our H-1B employment visa attorneys in Houston have over 60 years of combined experience helping clients obtain these nonimmigrant work visas.

Types of H-1B Employment Opportunities
There are currently only 85,000 H-1B visas available per year. In order to be eligible for this type of visa, you must meet several requirements. First, you must be qualified to work in a specialty occupation, as a DOD researcher and development project worker, or as a fashion model.
There are several types of specialty occupations that may qualify as H-1B jobs, including, but not limited to:
- Accountants and auditors
- Database administrators
- Civil engineers
- Physicians and surgeons
- Mechanical engineers
- Financial analysts
- Data communication and network administrators
- Software engineers
- Industrial engineers
- College and university educators
- Budget and management analysis
- Electrical engineers
In addition to working in the right type of job, you will need to have the right qualifications for that job. That is, your degree must correspond to the particular field for which you are seeking an H-1B visa. A person who holds a bachelor’s degree in accounting, for example, would not be permitted to apply for an H-1B visa for a mechanical engineering job.
