Robert P. (“Bob”) Webber is the Principal Attorney at Webber Law Firm, LLC. He limits his practice to employment-based and family-based immigration law matters. Bob is licensed to practice law by the Supreme Court of Minnesota and because immigration law is federal law, he is permitted to represent clients throughout the United States and worldwide on U.S. immigration law matters.
In 2003, Bob was named one of the “Top 10 Up & Coming Attorneys” by Minnesota Lawyer. He has received “Rising Star” and “SuperLawyer” designations, and Martindale-Hubbell has given Bob an “AV” rating based on peer reviews by other attorneys who have rated his work as “very high to preeminent” and ethical standards as “very high.” In 2013 he was recognized as a "Top Rated Attorney" by the American Lawyer, National Law Journal, and Corporate Counsel magazines.
Throughout his career, Bob has been an active member in the American Immigration Lawyers Association (AILA). He has served as a Secretary and Treasurer of the Minnesota/Dakotas chapter of AILA. In 1999, Bob led efforts to increase funding at the Minnesota state job service to facilitate faster processing of labor certification applications. These efforts led to the passage of a state law related to labor certification funding. Bob has spoken at local conferences of AILA as well as the AILA annual conference. Bob has written articles on various immigration law topics that have appeared in AILA national publications, including a recurring article on Best Practices for Practitioners. He has also served as a Contributing Editor for AILA's Guide to PERM Labor Certification.
Bob is a member of the Minnesota State Bar Association (MSBA), and has served as Chair of the MSBA New Lawyers Section, where he held a seat on the MSBA Executive Committee, which runs the association.

I endorse this lawyer. I have known Bob for the past few years. He is very insightful when it comes to complicated immigration law issues, and is by far one of the best mentors I have had throughout my professional career as an immigration attorney. I am truly grateful for his mentorship and guidance.
