Ways We Can Help You

Immigration Law

We handle the entire spectrum of employment-based immigration, including investor visas. From preparing petitions to advising clients regarding the specific immigration visas they need to legally work or conduct business in the United States, we help temporary and permanent foreign nationals find the right path to accomplish their objectives. Our firm also handles permanent residency visas in the employment-based and family-based categories. This includes foreign investors applying for EB-5 visas, marriage-based visas, and labor certification issues.

Employment Law

Employment law is one of our firm’s oldest practice areas. Attorney Padilla started as an employment law attorney in 1990 and has handled hundreds of cases under various federal discrimination laws, civil rights laws, and wage and hour laws. We represent both employees and employers and can provide reliable legal advice regarding separation agreements, employee manuals, and employment eligibility matters. We also advise companies on matters that fall under the jurisdiction of the U.S. Department of Labor, U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS), Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE), the U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC), and the Florida Department of Economic Opportunity.

Business & Real Estate Transactions

Our business and real estate transactions services complement our immigration services because many foreign nationals come to the U.S. to invest in real estate and/or acquire businesses. Our esteemed law firm has handled hundreds of residential and commercial real estate transactions over the last 10 years ranging in value from $200,000 to $18 million. We have served as lead counsel in hotel acquisitions, condominium projects, apartment buildings, warehouses, shopping mall leases, and commercial retail stores. From negotiating lease agreements and handling the closings to title insurance and escrow agent services, you can rely on the Law Offices of Santiago J. Padilla, P.A. to oversee all of your complex business and real estate matters. 

Commercial Litigation 

We have litigated hundreds of cases in the state and federal courts over the last 30 years. Our firm represents individuals, business owners, and enterprises in a variety of commercial matters and disputes. We have litigated contract disputes, collections under commercial sales contracts, employment disputes, non-compete agreements, unfair trade actions, trademark infringement, enforcement of foreign-country judgments, applications for judicial assistance in obtaining discovery for use in foreign legal proceedings, and fraudulent transfers.
