Navigating the labyrinthine immigration laws of the United States is a daunting task for anyone, particularly for foreign entrepreneurs and CEOs seeking to establish a foothold in the country. Yuliya Veremiyenko-Campos, the Managing Attorney of YVC Legal, with a unique perspective of being an immigrant herself, is pioneering a different way to approach this complex issue—by focusing on empathy and a deep understanding of her clients’ entrepreneurial needs.

Yuliya was born in Ukraine and has navigated the immigration process herself, so she knows firsthand how tough it can be. That personal history doesn’t just add a line to her resume—it deeply influences her approach to her work. She understands the mix of emotions and logistical challenges her clients face. “When someone tells me they’re frustrated because the process is long or complicated, I get it,” Yuliya says. “I’ve been there. For me, each case is more than just paperwork; it’s a person’s life-changing in real-time.”

Having grown up in an entrepreneurial family in Ukraine, Yuliya possesses an intimate understanding of business owners’ needs and concerns. “Understanding business isn’t just about knowing the law; it’s about grasping the intricacies of running a company, the responsibilities it entails, and the vision that drives it,” she explains.

Yuliya’s expansive educational background equips her with the global perspective often required in immigration law. With three law degrees, including a Master’s in International Law, she’s positioned to navigate the complexities of international documentation and regulatory compliance. “Different countries have different types of evidentiary documents, and understanding these nuances is crucial. Legal systems vary from one country to another, and grasping this diversity makes for a smoother immigration process,” Yuliya observes.

Dealing with specialized visas like EB-5, E-2, L visas, EB1A, and EB2NIW is one of Yuliya’s key areas of expertise. She mentions, “Each of these visas serves a unique purpose and comes with its own set of challenges. Being well-versed in the nuances of each type allows me to guide clients more effectively. It’s not just about getting a visa; it’s about choosing the right pathway that aligns with the client’s long-term goals and aspirations.”

When it comes to future aspirations, Yuliya is quite candid. “I envision my practice growing in a way that allows me to bring more foreign entrepreneurs into the United States. By doing so, I hope to be part of creating a more vibrant, diverse, and dynamic business landscape. But that’s not possible unless we start to look at business immigration not just as a legal process, but as a vital component of our nation’s economic strategy,” she states.

Yuliya Veremiyenko’s practice goes beyond mere legal representation; it offers a holistic approach to immigration, viewed through the lenses of empathy, business acumen, and forward-thinking leadership. Through her voice, we gain not just an understanding of the U.S. immigration system but also a vision of what it could be—a more streamlined, more empathetic process that recognizes the tremendous value foreign entrepreneurs bring to the table. With leaders like Yuliya advocating for this perspective, the American Dream becomes less of a cliche and more of an attainable reality for business leaders worldwide.
