Work Experience

Neil is the principal and managing attorney of NAWLAW and is heavily involved in all aspects of the firm. He is relentlessly dedicated to the firm’s clients and assisting them in achieving their U.S. immigration goals.

Accomplishments

In addition to other notable immigration work done at NAWLAW, which includes decisions published on the front page of the NY Law Journal and covered in the New York Times, Neil successfully filed a writ to the U.S. Supreme Court, which resulted in a decision in NAWLAW’s favor (Vartelas v. Holder, 132 S. Ct. 1479 (2012)).

Neil frequently lectures on immigration topics for organizations around the country and has been named a “Super Lawyer” by Super Lawyer Magazine based on peer recommendations. He has lectured on immigration to organizations such as SCORE NY (U.S. Small Business Administration), community groups, and educational institutions including the Manhattan School of Music, NY Film Academy, and the NYU School of Continuing Education. He has also conducted continuing legal education seminars, both locally and nationally. Neil has also lectured to human resources executives at various companies as well as the French Embassy in Washington, D.C. Neil has appeared on national radio and webinars.

Further, Neil wrote and published an article for the New York Enterprise Report regarding business immigration. And, he was recently contacted by CBS News in connection with the story involving the nationality of a child born over Russia on an airliner flying from Canada to Japan. Also, in June Neil presented a comprehensive lecture on EB-5 Green Card Investment sponsored by the REIN group and will be presenting again in the near future. In October, he again was invited to present a lecture on U.S. immigration to SCORE NY.
