P-1 visa win in a complicated case
Our Sports & Extraordinary Ability practice got off to a great start in 2019, with a P-1 approval for Canadian Tremaine Harris. Harris, a 400-meter Olympic sprinter, uses his P-1 to train with the world-renowned Altis group in Phoenix, AZ and compete in the US.
This case was complicated by a brief, inadvertent status violation by the athlete. Attorney Ksenia Maiorova crafted a legal strategy to overcome the violation and worked overtime to secure the approval, enabling the athlete to resume training in Arizona as soon as possible.
