    I have practiced immigration and citizenship law for about 35 years. I first became professionally-acquainted with Pamelia S. Barnett at several continuing legal education events sponsored by the American Immigration Lawyers Association. Subsequently, we conferenced about several different employment-based immigration cases. I have found Pamelia to be very knowledgeable about employment-based immigration law and practice. She has developed specialized expertise through many years of work experience in this sub-specialty. She is honest and well-organized. Her fees are competitive. I unequivocally endorse Pamelia S. Barnette in the sub-specialty of employment-based immigration law.
