The Law Office of Natalia Malyshkina

We see that people who come to an experienced immigration attorney early on in their immigration journey achieve dramatically better results than those who wait until the last minute.

We start working with clients by having an initial consultation. At the consultation, you can expect the following:

Answers: We will answer your questions. We will keep you informed, address your questions, and update you on new developments in immigration law.

Options: We evaluate your immigration options. Immigration laws can be very complex. The USA immigration attorney will help explain the laws to you in an easy to understand manner and explain immigration options available to you. We will also explain the procedures, timelines, expectations, and possible risks.

Plan: Our goal is to listen to you to help develop an action plan to accomplish your immigration needs. We are here to help!

We charge $100 for consultations (30 mins). We offer online consultations and consultations at our law office.

At our law office, we work with entrepreneurs who are in the USA or plan to visit the USA, and who wish build a business or a start a subsidiary of their company in this country. Some of our clients-entrepreneurs already hold a U.S visa, such as B visa (tourist/business visitor), F visa (student), or H visa (work visa).

We often work with entrepreneurs and business owners who decided to run a business in the USA and specifically in San Francisco or Silicon Valley.

Many entrepreneurs, after researching the best place to start their business, come to California. We are here to guide you through all steps of the legal immigration process from opening your company to getting visas to your key employees.

We touch on many aspects of your future business in the USA, though we primarily consult on how to start the business from legal and immigration point of view. We are excited to work with you!

Options for Foreign Startup Founders

Immigration law is highly complex. Many people think that they can take care of their immigration problems themselves, which can be true. However, many immigrants soon find out that due to numerous technicalities and legal language it is easy to overlook important details and requirements, which may delay or muddle their desired outcome. Many of our clients find that it is easier, faster, and after all considerations, cheaper to use services of a professional attorney who will help them avoid the unnecessary pains and costs associated with the possibilities of avoidable denials of their cases, delays and even deportation.


Annually, about 28% of all new U.S. businesses are opened by immigrants. Nearly 40 percent of Fortune 500 Companies were founded by immigrants or their children. That is why we added business law practice to our services, so we can help our current and potential clients set up their corporations, limited liability companies, and sole proprietorships. We further help our business clients by drafting contracts, explaining intricacies of U.S. contract laws.
