About me

I am a Senior Associate in the Dallas office of Berry Appleman & Leiden LLP (BAL) where I practice U.S. and global corporate immigration, serving some of the world's best known companies, and chair the firm’s Legal Research and Analysis Committee.

I have nearly a decade of experience in U.S. and global immigration law.  I started my career as an Attorney-Advisor at a U.S. Government immigration agency in Washington, DC, though the Attorney General’s Honors Program, and then entered the private sector, working for the world's top corporate immigration law firms.  

In 2012, I created a new Chapter of the American Immigration Lawyers Association (AILA) for the Asia Pacific region, the Bangkok District Chapter, and served as its inaugural Chair.  I am also the past Co-Chair of the American Bar Association Immigration and Naturalization Committee, past member of the AILA National Business Immigration Committee, and currently serve on the Steering Committee of AILA’s Global Migration Section.  

I have authored over 20 articles on immigration law, spoken at nearly 30 immigration-related events, contributed to major immigration studies, and drafted comments to major USCIS policy memoranda.  

I am dual-qualified in both the United States and Australia.

  • David Hirson

    I have known Noah for several years as an employee, colleague and friend. He is both knowledgeable and experienced in immigration law and is very professional in dealing with clients, his coworkers, colleagues and in the execution of his work on legal cases. It has been my pleasure to get to know him on a personal level as well. He is a man of integrity and driven by a passion for life, his wonderful family and his work. I highly recommend Noah without any question, hesitation or doubt. He continues to work and manage our Asia-Pacific US consular practice from our Melbourne, Australia office.
