  • Nicole R. Abruzzo

    Mr. Glinsmann acted as the AILA liaison to the NBC on behalf of my law firm in a very complex immigration matter implicating the Child Status Protection Act. Mr. Glinsmann spent many hours conferring with the Lead Attorney at our office, Alexander V. Bibicheff, and speaking with the Immigration Services Officer at the NBC. Thanks to Mr. Glinsmann's extraordinary efforts, we received results far beyond expectations.
