My wife was born in Russia, and has since become a naturalized U.S. citizen.

Born in the US, family is from China. Now I realize mom was right, I should have studied more Chinese when I was young. So, better late than never lol. I spent 2008 in Beijing, teaching and studying at Tsinghua University School of Law, and it was best time of my life. I am hoping to leverage the interest that Chinese investors have in the EB-5 investor immigrant visa category.

Immigration attorneys (sometimes called “green card lawyers”) represent people who want to come to the United States, whether it be for schooling, work, or just a visit. Immigration lawyers can also help “illegal” immigrants found living in the U.S. without permission. Immigration laws govern who can enter the U.S., how long they can stay, what they can do while they are here, and how they can become American citizens. If you are not a U.S. citizen and want to apply for a green card or other visa, or if you are already in the U.S. and have been threatened with deportation, an immigration lawyer can help you.
