Bob White to Speak at AILA National Fall Conference in New York

Robert "Bob" White of the Firm's Immigration Group has been invited by the American Immigration Lawyers Association (AILA) to participate in a panel at its Fall 2006 Conference in New York on September 15, 2006.  Mr. White's panel is titled "Pace Yourself for the Long Haul - Maintaining Status for Your Client."  Mr. White's panel will discuss and educate immigration practitioners on strategies for maintaining foreign nationals' status so that they are not adversely affected by the retrogression of the employment-based immigrant visa categories.  He will also be answering questions from immigration practioners and providing advice about how they can best assist their clients during the retrogression.  Mr. White will also be providing a summary of the provisions contained in the Senate's Immigration Reform Bill which, if enacted, would significantly benefit employers and their foreign national employees.
