Hi everyone, I’m Krystal Alanis, an immigration attorney from Houston, Texas. 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. I have guided my clients from a variety of industries through the maze of the PERM Labor certification process, and handled thousands of PERM applications throughout my career. I also guide employers and individuals through the I-140 and Adjustment of Status process, and assist clients with non-immigrant visa petitions (e.g. H-1B, TN, L-1 etc.). Further, as part of the firm’s I-9 compliance team, I advise employers regarding Form I-9 Employment Eligibility Verification requirements and conduct internal audits of a company’s I-9 records, processes, and procedures. With nearly a decade of immigration experience, I am able to assist my clients with confidence and recognize any potential pitfalls that may arise.

I have hosted multiple educational webinars regarding the Employment Based Green Card process, PERM Labor Certification, I-9 compliance for HR Professionals, and OPT/STEM OPT compliance for F-1 students and employers. Additionally, I have been a speaker at the University of Houston – Central, and the University of Houston – Clear Lake, discussing the variety of immigration related options available to F-1 international students beyond graduation.

I offer consultations on a variety of immigration topics. If you would like to schedule a consultation  with  me,  click  below!
