About The Founder
Neil A. Weinrib, with over 40 years of experience in immigration law across the United States and consular practices abroad, founded NawLaw in 1981 as a solo practice, which has since expanded into a thriving firm with a dedicated team of experienced attorneys and paralegals. The firm handles a wide spectrum of U.S. immigration law, successfully processing various cases, including nonimmigrant visas, U visa for crime victims, political asylum, immigrant visa (green card) applications, and petitions for relatives, confronting the challenges posed by the evolving landscape of immigration law.
In addition to its impactful immigration work, NawLaw has achieved notable successes, gaining recognition in the NY Law Journal, the New York Times, and securing a favorable decision from the U.S. Supreme Court in Vartelas v. Holder (2012). Neil A. Weinrib has extensively contributed to the field through lectures on U.S. immigration, covering topics such as the EB-5 investment green card program for organizations like SCORE NY, community groups, and educational institutions. He has recorded podcasts for Fordham Law School, lectured to human resources executives at various companies, and served as a moot court judge for institutions like Cardozo Law School and NYU School of Law.
Furthermore, Neil’s expertise has been acknowledged in various media outlets, including national radio and webinars, and he has been quoted in the New York Law Journal and The Media Line, a Middle Eastern news publication.
