Maria del Carmen Ramos Selected as Top Author

TAMPA, FL - The law firm of Shumaker, Loop & Kendrick, LLP is pleased to announce that Tampa partner Maria del Carmen Ramos received the JD Supra Readers’ Choice Award as a Top Author:  Immigration for the second year in a row. Maria was recognized for the outstanding level of reach and engagement she attained through The Immigration Bulletin blog to readers across various industries.

The Readers’ Choice Awards was narrowed down from 40,000 to 200 JD Supra authors who published work throughout 2016.  JD Supra editors selected the top ten authors with consistently high readership and engagement for a particular area of the law.

Maria devotes a substantial portion of her practice to counseling clients on immigration and related employment issues. In particular, Maria has extensive experience helping employers obtain H-1B and E visas, as well employment-based green cards, on behalf of foreign workers employed in specialty occupations. She also helps companies that have global operations obtain L-1 visas on behalf of their foreign-based employees so they can transfer to the United States. In addition to helping employers obtain visas for foreign workers, Maria routinely conducts audits for clients to ensure they are complying with their obligation to verify their employees’ eligibility to work in the United States.  Earlier this year, Maria was voted a Tampa Top Lawyer in Immigration Law by Tampa magazine.
