    Blair is the most thorough and effective immigration attorney I know. We started practicing immigration law together, so I know his work well. We now have separate law practices in different states. Blair is hard working, extremely knowledgeable and capable and effective in all areas of immigration law. If I every needed an immigration attorney, I would turn to Blair. I unreservedly recommend him as Georgia's preeminent immigration attorney.
