What does Todd do?: You would have an experienced attorney to 1. maximize your chances of winning your religious worker case through preparing a strong case, 2. prepare and file the petition, and 3. be available for consultation through the process (like responding to requests for additional evidence, answering questions about the site visit, etc.).The choice of a lawyer is an important decision and should not be based solely upon advertisements. Todd Wagenmaker can assist with immigration law, which is federal law, but not any state law issues (i.e. helping clients obtain/renew drivers licenses).
