  • Matthew Anthony Streff

    Satveer is a highly respected attorney in the immigration law community. He is one of the top authorities in Minnesota on U.S./Canadian border issues. I always refer clients with these issues to him. He is also a valuable resource for me in handling employment-based immigration issues: I view him as a reliable advisor in talking through complex employment-based immigration issues.
