Every attorney with the Youman, Madeo & Fasano Law Firm is a member of the American Immigration Lawyers Associaiton, AILA. AILA's website describes the organization as a national association of over 11,000 attorneys and law professors who practice and teach immigration law. AILA Member attorneys represent U.S. families seeking permanent residence for close family members, as well as U.S. businesses seeking talent from the global marketplace. AILA Members also represent foreign students, entertainers, athletes, and asylum seekers, often on a pro bono basis. Founded in 1946, AILA is a nonpartisan, not-for-profit organization that provides continuing legal education, information, professional services, and expertise through its 38 chapters and over 50 national committees.
Donald Madeo and I often speak on Continuing Legal Education Panels on behalf of AILA nationwide. I also write articles for AILA for its publication Voice and for its CLE materials.
In the past I chaired for two terms the AILA New York Chapter's Federal Courts Committee.
Yesterday, AILA issued an informative press release that should receive notice and recognition. It is notable because it highlights the strengths and benefits of "Border Security, Economic Opportunity, and Immigration Modernization Act" (S. 744).
