My business immigration practice serves a diverse range of corporate and individual clients in the sciences, healthcare, finance, business, social service and religious organizations, architecture, arts & design. I have served on a wide variety of committees for the American Immigration Lawyers Association (AILA), both locally in New York, the largest chapter, and for the national organization, including over a decade as moderator of the O & P visa message board on AILA InfoNet, a forum for immigration lawyers to share information on current legal issues & agency trends about visas for artists, performers, athletes, and other aliens of extraordinary ability. I have also moderated the AILA InfoNet forums on L and E visas. My longstanding pro bono service commitments include the Episcopal Diocese of New York and the CUNY Citizenship Now Volunteer Corps.
If you are an employer, I can help you get the right type of work visa or permanent residence for the foreign workers your organization needs to hire and retain, and can help plan for immigration consequences to your workforce of mergers, acquisitions and other changes to corporate structure.
If you are an individual, I can advise on which visa categories may be available to you, and can help obtain the right visa status for your needs, and help you plan long-term visa strategy to accommodate career & personal plans, which may involve visas, residence, & citizenship, for yourself and your family.
