Emil R. Dixon
I am the principal attorney at the Davis Legal Center, a boutique immigration law and consulting office in Northern California. I have more than ten years of experience working on human rights and immigration law and policy matters across the globe. I have represented individuals, for-profit corporations, and non-profit entities from more than 50 countries where I have successfully advised on internal and external immigration matters.
My practice emphasizes immigration management and compliance consulting, including representing major religious organizations, start-ups, universities, tech companies, and medical clinics. I also provide immigration status and Form I-9 auditing services so organizations are confident they are complying with their legal obligations. My practice focuses on crafting immigration solutions clients can implement using their HR team, saving full legal representation for complicated cases and special projects.
DLC provides representation and compliance services for religious workers in the R-1 Nonimmigrant Religious Worker and EB-4 Special Immigrant Religious Worker categories. It has helped more than 500 religious workers from more than 25 countries obtain religious worker status inside the United States. DLC also provides recruitment and consulting services to churches.
The U.S. government has more than doubled the number of worksite inspections and Form I-9 compliance audits it conducts annually in recent years. The current administration has pledged to increase this number even further. Failed inspections or audits can carry civil and criminal penalties. It can also impact an employer's ability to sponsor workers in the future. DLC helps organizations complete self-audits, take remedial actions, and implement immigration standards, which reduces their liability and ensures full compliance with the law.
DLC provides nonimmigrant and immigrant employment-based representation and consulting services, with an emphasis on the H-1B, H-3, L-1, EB-1, EB-2, and EB-3 categories. DLC focuses on working with an organization's in-house counsel or HR staff to craft immigration solutions and standards that can be implemented internally. This reduces the organization's overall legal costs. DLC also offers one-on-one management consulting services to create staff immigration plans and can prepare custom immigration seminars for in-house counsel and HR staff.
DLC accepts a select number of family-based, naturalization and other immigration cases based on its current case load. DLC has provided representation to individuals in more than 35 countries to help them successfully immigrate to the United States and provides full representation from initial petition preparation through consular processing.
