Who's Who Legal Corporate Immigration

Avi Friedman is partner of the top-rated Wolfsdorf Rosenthal LLP immigration law firm. Wolfsdorf Rosenthal provides a full range of global immigration services to its diverse client base, ranging from Fortune 500 corporations to leading institutions in health care, entertainment and academia.

Mr Friedman assists applicants with visa applications at US consular posts worldwide, focusing on in-person attorney/client representation at US consular posts and border applications in Canada and Mexico. He also handles family-based and employment-based immigrant petitions, naturalisation applications, investor visa applications, and J-1 waivers and immigrant and non-immigrant petitions for international medical graduate physicians.

He was named both the 2014 and 2016 Los Angeles Immigration Law "Lawyer of the Year" by US News - Best Lawyers. He served six terms on the American Immigration Lawyers Association (AILA) Department of State liaison committee and also recently acted as the AILA Canada chapter liaison to the US Embassy in Ottawa. He served 11 terms as the consular affairs liaison for the Southern California chapter of AILA, and was also listed in The Southern California Super Lawyers from 2010-2014.

He has authored numerous articles for AILA, including several chapters for the Visa Processing Guide; "Third-Country National (TCN) and Consular Processing of Non-immigrant Visa Applications in Mexico and Canada: Practice Advisory"; "Nonimmigrant Waivers of Inadmissibility under INA 212(d)(3)"; "'DOs' and 'DON'Ts' for Attorneys Representing Visa Applicants (and for Consular Officers, too!)"; "Nonimmigrant Visa Processing In Canada or Mexico Remains The Best Option for Third Country Nationals"; and "NIV Consular Processing - Truth and Consequences". He is also a frequent speaker on consular/visa issues and waivers at immigration conferences.

WWL says: Avi Friedman is described as "the go-to person when it comes to consular processing issues”, say interviewees, who add, “He is very knowledgeable with questions concerning US consulates abroad."
