Review William Stock

About Me

My partners and I practiced at one of the 50 largest law firms in the United States prior to founding our firm, which is dedicated solely to the practice of immigration law. We have continued our national practice in immigration and nationality law, and whether on behalf of Fortune 500 companies or individuals, our lawyers bring decades of experience to bear on complicated issues, and are personally involved in every case our office handles.


---


As foreign exchange student living in Germany, I became intersted in international exchange of ideas and people.  In law school, I began work with the Office of International Education, working with international students, scholars and faculty on their immigration and other legal issues, which led me to the field of immigration law.


 


The best thing about being an immigration lawyer is that it is all about helping people - both helping employers to get great talent from everywhere around the world, and helping individuals to accomplish things in their career here that they would not be able to do anywhere else in the world.
