About Krystal

Hi everyone, I’m Krystal Alanis, an immigration attorney from Houston, Texas. I grew up in Houston and lived in Austin, TX for 4 years where I attended The University of Texas (Hook ‘em Horns!). I moved back home after college and attended law school at The University of Houston Law Center (Go Coogs!). Immediately after taking the bar exam in 2011, I began working with Reddy & Neumann, P.C. where I was introduced into the amazing world of business immigration. Now I’m here to share insight and updates into this exciting and ever-changing world of employment based immigration!

Currently I am a Partner at Reddy & Neumann, P.C. and the Managing Attorney of the firm’s PERM Labor Certification Department, where I oversee all EB-2 and EB-3 employment based green card matters. Through many years of experience in the field, I am able to assist my clients with confidence and recognize any potential pitfalls that may arise. I also guide employers and individuals through the I-140 and Adjustment of Status process, assist clients with non-immigrant visa petitions (H-1B, TN, L-1, etc.), and advise on I-9 compliance issues.

As a way to give back to my clients and the immigrant community, I have created this blog, theimmigrationfiles.com, where I provide valuable information on a variety of employment based immigration topics, including the latest news and updates impacting highly-skilled immigrants.

Working in this field has allowed me to understand the struggle and frustration of those going through the immigration process, whether it be a corporate employer or an individual. Along the way, I have come across many great and inspiring people and have learned from their stories. I hope to continue my journey with you all and give back by sharing some insight from my immigration files.
