  • Daniela Schneider Pulcini

    Mr. Silzer is an outstanding immigration law attorney and I am very happy that he has been my mentor on business immigration law for the past two years. Mr. Silzer is not only extremely knowledgeable in immigration law, but he also has a thorough understanding about business law and corporate structures, which is incredibly valuable when dealing with sophisticated clients such as foreign and American corporations, investors, and company executives. This combined knowledge makes Mr. Silzer without a doubt the best attorney in his field of expertise. I highly endorse Mr. Silzer as an immigration attorney and as a mentor.
