Texas Sports-Related Immigration Services

The Law Offices of Richard A. Gump, Jr. focuses exclusively on representing employers and individuals in all immigration matters, including sports-related immigration. Athletic employment visas are usually grouped into two categories:

  • O-1 visas — These visas are usually reserved only for athletes, coaches, trainers and other sports professionals who are considered as experts in their fields by their peers, other professionals in the industry and international organizations. Our firm has experience helping those with extraordinary athletic abilities demonstrate their eligibility for O-1 status by gathering, reviewing, drafting and filing all necessary documentation.
  • P visas — These visas are reserved for internationally recognized professional athletes who are recruited by U.S. teams for temporary employment for the season. They also apply to those who wish to explore employment opportunities in American athletics on a short-term basis.

In some cases, athletes and sports professionals must be sponsored by a U.S. organization or other employer. Our Dallas sports-related visa attorneys are familiar with every aspect of temporary employment visas, including initial application procedures, verification processes and proper labor certification. We also provide services in continued compliance with immigration law once visas have been approved.

Our firm is widely recognized by our peers, immigration officials and employers for our in-depth representation and sophistication of client service. We partner with employers and professionals nationwide to handle all their immigration needs. Contact us to learn more about how we can help you address your immigration concerns.
