Jason is a third-generation immigration lawyer with 18 years of experience supporting both businesses and families with immigration needs, from recruiting global talent for workforces to finding permanent residence options for trusted caregivers. He represents the largest state power organization in the country, many medium and small businesses, and individuals including chefs, CEOs, musicians, journalists, and entrepreneurs.
His practice includes employment-based and family-based petitions and applications, including H-1B and O-1 nonimmigrant visas and all immigrant petitions, as well as waivers and applications for U.S. citizenship. He provides representation in Immigration Court for adjustment hearings and Cancellation of Removal cases and engages in federal court litigation as a means to resolve both employment-and family-based cases. As befits his commitment to global citizenship, Jason is fluent in French and his team is also always available to Spanish-speaking clients.
Jason serves as Special Counsel to the New York State Attorney Disciplinary Committee. He also provides pro bono services through American Immigration Lawyers Association Military Assistance Program.
In addition, Jason focuses on the immigration status of au pairs, who are childcare workers admitted to the United States in a cultural exchange. The Trump administration has issued two proclamations affecting their ability to enter the United States: a temporary ban on J-1 visas, and an overlapping ban on entry from some of the most popular countries of origin for au pairs — Brazil and the entirety of Western Europe. Jason works with host families to obtain National Interest Exceptions allowing their au pairs admission to the country and, later, changes their status to visitor or student, or even adjusts them to permanent resident status.
