Matthew Ian Bernstein

About me

I am an Attorney practicing exclusively in the area of Immigration and Nationality law. For over a decade I have advised individuals and organizations in all areas of immigration law, including professionals, academics, artists and entertainers, individuals seeking immigration benefits for family members, asylees and individuals threatened with removal from the United States by the government.  I have taught immigration and nationality law to students and attorneys.

In my legal practice, I strive to provide professional, prompt service, while at the same time developing lasting and warm relationships with the clients I serve by treating them as equals in the process and being responsive to their needs.
