Tanya Stoyanova is an attorney with Garson LLP’s U.S. permanent residence team.  She possesses fifteen years of combined experience as an attorney and a law clerk specializing in U.S. immigration and nationality law matters, including applications and petitions for various nonimmigrant classifications (B-1/B-2, E-2, E-3, F-1, H-3, H-1B, J-1, L-1A/B, O-1, P-1, TN); employment-based immigrant petitions; family-based immigrant petitions; applications for permanent resident status and citizenship.  


As a law clerk, Tanya worked in the immigration practice group of one of the oldest and largest full-service law firms in the United States and handled a high-volume caseload of nonimmigrant and immigrant employment-based petitions for Fortune 500, mid-cap and emerging growth companies and their employees.  Prior to joining Garson LLP, Tanya worked as an attorney for a U.S. immigration practice in Canada, specializing in applications for alien employment certification via PERM, employment-based immigrant petitions based on an approved labor certification (EB-2/3), and immigrant petitions for multinational managers (EB-1C).  She also provided counsel pertaining to employees’ retention of permanent residence status during international assignments and assisted clients with permanent residence processing at various U.S. consular posts abroad.
