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!
