Is my company eligible to sponsor an H1B?

I would not let being a small company dissuade you from sponsoring an H1B employee. Many believe that small companies cannot successfully petition for H1B visas. However, even though small or startup companies often do not have as much business activity or revenues to show as compared to more established businesses, it is still highly possible for these companies to obtain H1B approvals (as long as all other H1B requirements are met). Generally, these companies must submit additional documentation proving that they are legitimate, financially solid companies capable of paying the potential H1B employee’s wages. It is important to look at the totality of the circumstances and submit evidence accordingly. As for an immigration lawyer, you can get names of local attorneys from AILA (the American Immigration Lawyer’s Association), but immigration law is universal and Federal in nature which means that an immigration lawyer in any part of the country can usually assist you.
