Haley is member of Tonkon Torp's Immigration Practice Group. Her practice focuses on employment-based immigration and counseling domestic and international businesses on compliance matters relating to foreign national employees. Haley represents businesses, ranging from start-up companies to large global companies, in obtaining authorization for foreign national employees to work temporarily and permanently in the United States.
 
Haley prepares both immigrant and nonimmigrant petitions and applications on behalf of foreign workers. Haley's areas of expertise include H-1B, L-1, TN, and E-3 nonimmigrant petitions, extraordinary ability petitions, I-140 immigrant petitions for multinational managers and executives, national interest waivers, PERM labor certifications, adjustment of status applications, and naturalization applications.
 
Haley's employment-based immigration experience includes work for the healthcare sector, including J-1 waiver applications and green card processing for foreign medical graduates. Haley also advises and represents clients on family-based immigration matters.
 
Haley frequently speaks on immigration matters at the local and national level.
 
In addition to her immigration practice, Haley also has substantial corporate experience advising clients on general business matters, acquisitions and divestitures, entity formation, corporate governance, corporate restructuring, and drafting and negotiating contracts. 
 
Before joining Tonkon Torp, Haley completed a two-year judicial clerkship with the Honorable Robert D. Wollheim of the Oregon Court of Appeals. She earned her J.D. magna cum laude from Willamette University College of Law. 
 
In her free time, Haley enjoys all things active (yoga, cycling, working out, hiking), adventure travel, cooking, volunteering for animal-related causes, and spending time with her husband and dog.
