also known as Charles Raether
Although I'm not sure exactly what it means to be a "typical" attorney, I don't think I fit the usual stereotype. My years of work in the public and private sectors, including extensive work overseas in Russia and surrounding markets, have given me a unique perspective on handling client matters, especially with foreign clients. I work collaboratively with clients to solve their issues with a focus on customer service. It is only due to satisfied clients that we have built our practice to where it is and continue to grow from here.
When I'm not in the office, I love to travel. And of course ski. If you can strap it to my feet, I'm game. Water skiing. Downhill skiing. Cross country skiing. As long as my back holds out, I'll keep on skiing!

Anastasia White, Immigration Attorney
Mr. Raether is extremely professional and knowledgeable attorney committed to his clients. He makes a point of maintaining excellent relationships with his clients both during the representation and after the matter is over. Due to Mr. Raether’s experience in EB-5 and business visas, he obtained the best results for the clients in most difficult situations, after they had multiple requests for evidence and even denials. It is great honor to work with him and to learn from him every day.
