Describing her as “truly a rising star,” City & State has named Azin Ahmadi, associate attorney with our Immigration Law Practice Group, to its 2023 40 Under 40 list of young professionals who are reshaping Albany and impacting policy debates.
Azin shared core aspects of her inspiring story with City & State. She told the news publication that her interest in immigration law and advocacy stems from her parents’ experience in obtaining legal status in Germany. “A child of immigrant parents who fled Iran amid the brutal Iran-Iraq War, Ahmadi later entered the United States in her early 20s after living in Germany and Turkey,” City & State observed.
Working out of our growing Capital Region offices, Azin counsels employers in a wide range of immigration matters, including both non-immigrant and immigration visa options (H-1B, E-3, TN, E-1, E-2, L-1, and B-1), as well as employment-based green card options through PERM Labor Certification, EB-1, EB-2 and EB-3 categories. Azin also works with individual clients in a range of matters involving family-based/individual immigration.
Azin has extensive experience representing clients before the U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services in matters including family-based immigrant visas and Adjustment of Status applications.
