Below is a link to an article written by one of my clients, Mike Galarza.It is a poignant and intimate description of the hoops foreign-born entrepreneurs must jump through in order to start a business in the United States.As Mike notes in his article, foreign-born investors are a tremendous boon to our gross domestic product (GDP).Mike’s experience of delays at every stage of his immigration process presents a compelling case that comprehensive immigration reform must happen soon and must pay special attention to foreign-born entrepreneurs who bolster job growth and bring revenue to the United States.

  • Gabriel Jack helped us apply for an O-1 Visa, when we needed to change visa status and we got it! The documentation required for an O-1 visa is extensive but we managed to complete everything together with Gabriel in about 4 weeks. Gabriel is very professional and knows what is important and he is also easy to talk to and helpful. We are very pleased and will use Gabriel again should there be a need.

  • Gabriel did a good job. He was easy to deal with, returned calls and did what he said he would – nice change from some lawyers I’ve dealt with. My E3 was approved with no trouble at all…and he’s a really nice person, which is a good bonus. Thanks Gabe!!
    Counrty of Origin Many Thanks! -
  • We had previously shopped around for an immigration lawyer, but we went with Gabriel. He was very knowledgeable, friendly, and thorough. He was able to help us to prepare a very detailed interview packet, and we got our E2 visa at the end of the interview.
