Welcome to Stanick Law!

Leann is a New York City based attorney who practices Immigration, Business, and Real Estate Law. She received her Bachelor of Arts in Political Science and Women’s Studies from the University at Albany, and graduated from Florida Coastal School of Law having earned an International & Comparative Law Certificate. Eager to expand upon her expertise in human rights, Leann went on to complete the Advanced Studies on Human Rights and Humanitarian Law Diploma Program at American University Washington College of Law.

Throughout her studies, Leann completed internships at the UN-mandated Special Tribunal for Lebanon, Caribbean Law Clinic, an immigration law firm, and study abroad programs in Rwanda, South Africa, and the Cayman Islands. Upon passing the Bar and prior to co-founding her first law practice, Leann immersed herself in the field of litigation, first at an international law firm and then with a multinational professional services firm. At that point in her career, she chose to use her professional and interpersonal skills to build a practice that effectively services immigrant families, young professionals, and international corporations.

Leann was born in Trinidad and Tobago, and raised between the islands, New York City, and New Jersey. Her passion for serving migrant communities stems from personal experiences with U.S. immigration, cross-border settlement, and overcoming a series of related obstacles. Resilient and purposive, Leann achieves the most favorable outcome for her clients by forming creative solutions to complex legal issues. Having navigated the immigration system herself, she provides invaluable insight and expert guidance.

The impetus behind her practice is to effectively serve immigrant families, young professionals and entrepreneurs, and internatonal corporations. She has managed a private practice for over three years, as well as lead an international corporate immigration H-1B Extensions team of over 30+ processors and auditors, achieving record-high success rates on the Fortune 200 company’s H-1B filings. 

We look forward to working with you to achieve your goals!

Simply The Best
We were very fortunate to have been represented by Leann. She was able to provide us with knowledgable, timely, and effective legal services. Leann never hesitated to make time to discuss our case and help in any way possible. We were put at ease knowing we had one of the top immigration lawyers available at our disposal. Leann came up with both practical, and out-of-the-box solutions to help bring our case to a close. So grateful or all or Leann'a help and dedication.

Above & Beyond
From beginning to end (upcoming later this week), Leann has been on top of everything throughout this first-time home purchasing process. From day 1 - she’s been what you’d want from someone on the legal side representing and helping you navigate this normally stressful journey. And while stressful for a wide variety of obvious and not so obvious reasons, Leann has been by my side every step of the way - always sure to bubble up every little detail that has been thrown our way; I couldn’t recommend her and her services enough and will recommend her in the future for anyone that might need similar legal aid down the road - an absolute rockstar to work with. 11/10

My wife and I were incredibly confused by the Green card process because of so many variables pertaining to her status. Leann has done an amazing job simplifying the process for us by weeding out what we needed and what we didnt. She is incredibly knowledgeable and would recommend her to anyone in need of help.

An excellent lawyer I have ever found!
Leann has been super helpful during multiple legal cases for us. Throughout each of the processes, she has been very responsive, diligent, attentive to detail, thoughtful, and supportive. She also brings in significant legal experience, which helped us in getting good outcomes in our cases. Another thing to mention is that unlike some Attorneys, she is not money driven at all. She has always given us a fair price for each case. In sum, I highly recommend Leann to you!
