Youngblood & Associates is one of the most uniquely structured firms of its kind, as its staff is as experienced in business agriculture as it is in immigration and labor law.

We serve as long-term legal partners for individuals and families, as well as for employers seeking foreign labor. When we work with you, we help you build your future. We customize our approach to your specific personal and business needs and adapt our legal strategy as you move forward or grow your business.

For Individuals

We understand that immigration is complicated and that every case is unique. Our experience and knowledge required to seek creative solutions and a path to legal status for each individual client.

For Families

Navigating the process of immigration for your family members is complicated, but we work hard to find creative solutions tailored to each situation we’re presented with.

For Businesses

We know that finding the best employees for your business can be difficult and sometimes you have to widen your search to include candidates who are not U.S. citizens.
