  • Moses Apsan

    I have known Neil Dornbaum for more than 1/4 century. During this period he has developed a reputation as one of the most trusted and knowledgeable Business immigration attorney in the United States. He not only has been a mentor to many of my colleagues, but regularly analyses and teaches complicated immigration laws to many lawyers. I wholeheartedly recommend Neil Dornbaum to any individual or corporation in need of an U.S. immigration lawyer.
