“I never forget that I am an immigrant, who came to the United States as an F-1 student and had to navigate the entire immigration process myself when all the odds were stacked against me. Therefore, it’s not just business. It’s personal.
I am one of you. An Immigrant.
Having personally gone through many of these critical processes and experiences myself, spending many years representing individual and corporate clients, and successfully handling thousands of immigration cases, I am confident that if you entrust me with the responsibility to handle your immigration case, I will deliver the best.” – Jay Terkiana
