Veteran attorneys form Saev Hernandez Immigration Practice

Office to focus on employment, family and humanitarian immigration law

Nashville-based immigration attorneys Milen Saev and Rose Hernandez have announced the opening of Saev Hernandez Immigration Practice, PLLC.

The office is located at 1212 Seventh Ave. N. in Germantown.

The two partners previously practiced immigration law at Rose Immigration Law Firm. Saev and Hernandez focus on employment-based, family-based and humanitarian immigration law.

“We are very excited to branch out on our own and continue to strive to provide great customer service to the immigrant community,” Saev said in a release. “Our new office is in Nashville’s picturesque Germantown neighborhood, just blocks from the Nashville Farmer’s Market. It feels good to be in such a vibrant and evolving neighborhood, which reflects the incredible energy of Nashville in 2014.”

Hernandez and Saev, both graduates of Vanderbilt University School of Law, combine to speak fluent Spanish, Russian and Bulgarian.

“We know what it’s like to go through the immigration process,” Hernandez (pictured) said. “My husband is from Mexico, and our family is in the final stages of his permanent residence case right now. Milen is originally from Bulgaria and became a U.S. citizen a few years ago after applying for permanent residence through employment.”

Saev focuses primarily in business immigration, including temporary work visas, PERM labor certification applications, permanent residence cases, consular visa applications, I-9 compliance and other immigration-related matters for businesses, universities and individual clients.

Saev assists clients with L-1 international specialist and managerial employee transfers, E-2 investment visas, and Tennessee applications for Mexican and Canadian workers.

Hernandez focuses on permanent residence through employment, particularly the labor certification process. She also works on family-based immigration and humanitarian cases, such as U visas for victims of certain crimes who have cooperated with law enforcement, waivers, deferred action for childhood arrivals and special paths to citizenship.

Hernandez speaks and writes on the immigration regulatory environment in Tennessee, immigration options for children, citizenship and comprehensive immigration reform. Hernandez volunteers for the Tennessee Immigrant and Refugee Rights Coalition (TIRRC) as the supervising attorney for its Welcoming Tennessee Naturalization Clinics.
