As the Nevada Chapter Chair of the American Immigration Lawyers Association (AILA), attorney Margo Chernysheva actively helps the nation’s immigration lawyers enhance their professional skills and stay abreast of current immigration developments.

An experienced Las Vegas immigration attorney and the founder of MC Law Group, Ms. Chernysheva recently spoke at the 2018 AILA Annual Conference on Immigration Law in San Francisco.

She was one of several immigration attorneys speaking on the topic “Mindfulness in Practice: Assessing Diversity and Implicit Bias.”

WHAT SPECIFIC TOPICS WERE ADDRESSED?

The panelists focused on cross-cultural awareness and sensitivity issues that are unique to the practice of immigration law – for example, diverse immigration attorneys from various backgrounds representing clients from various backgrounds and countries around the world.

Ms. Chernysheva offered the AILA conference attendees her insights and advice on how to collaborate effectively with attorneys and clients from different cultural backgrounds.

She also spoke regarding the ethical and practical considerations that immigration lawyers must take into account to balance open-mindedness and sensitivity with an awareness of implicit bias, and she explained how implicit bias can affect client representation and case strategy.

WHAT SUGGESTIONS WERE OFFERED TO CONFERENCE ATTENDEES?

Attorney Chernysheva and her co-panelists offered the immigration lawyers in attendance a number of practical suggestions in these four areas:

1. Effective and Culturally-Sensitive Communication Techniques When Working with Colleagues, Clients, and Opposing Counsel

2. Stepping into the Client’s Shoes: Educating Yourself in Order to Communicate Client Cultural Norms and Values When Presenting the Case

3. Effectively Communicating with Indigent Clients

4. Increasing Self-Awareness and Demonstrating Respect to Colleagues and Clients

WHAT MAKES CONFERENCES LIKE THIS SO IMPORTANT IN 2018?

In 2018, the future of immigration law is more uncertain than ever before. No one can be sure what Congress, the courts, or the Trump Administration will do regarding immigration in the coming weeks and months.

Now more than ever, it’s vital for the nation’s immigration lawyers to share insights and information with one another.

The 2018 AILA Annual Conference on Immigration Law offered immigration attorneys the chance to share and learn by conducting a variety of panel discussions that included experts in the fields of not only immigration law but also business law, family law, and criminal justice.

The 2018 AILA Annual Conference on Immigration Law was held at the San Francisco Hilton and Parc 55 Hotels from June 13th through June 16th.

Xavier Becerra, the Attorney General of California and an advocate for comprehensive immigration reform, delivered the conference’s keynote address.

Audio recordings of the panel discussions from the 2018 AILA Annual Conference on Immigration Law will be made available for purchase from the AILA website.

Attorney Margo Chernysheva Speaks At AILA Investors Summit

Las Vegas immigration attorney Margo Chernysheva, the founder of MC Law Group and the Chair of the Nevada Chapter of the American Immigration Lawyers Association (AILA), recently spoke at the 2017 AILA EB-5 Investors Summit, which was held at the Aria Resort & Casino Hotel in Las Vegas on December 8th and 9th.

The EB-5 investor visa program encourages international investors to make investments that will create jobs in the United States. In recent years, U.S. developers are increasingly turning to EB-5 capital for project funding, and the number of EB-5 investors and their families immigrating to the U.S. has climbed considerably.

However, some problems have also emerged with the EB-5 investor visa program, so the need for immigration attorneys in the U.S. to provide information and to work together on strategies for effective representation of regional center and international investor clients has never been more urgent.

WHAT WAS THE PURPOSE OF THE AILA INVESTORS SUMMIT?

In these uncertain times, immigration attorneys need to share information and insights with their colleagues. The 2017 AILA EB-5 Investors Summit provided an opportunity for sharing information and insights by featuring panel discussions that included experts in the fields of immigration law, securities, business law, and economics.

AILA panelists focused on legal and policy analysis, due diligence, compliance, enforcement, and ethical considerations, with the goal of improving the ability of immigration attorneys to help their regional center or investor clients navigate increasingly complicated legal and business challenges.

As part of a panel that discussed the topic “EB-5 Bootcamp: Practical Tips On Filing Your First Case,” immigration attorney Margo Chernysheva shared – primarily for the benefit of newer immigration attorneys – legal insights and practice pointers for filing an EB-5 petition for the first time.

Attorney Chernysheva also discussed a number of the obstacles that immigration attorneys and their EB-5 investor clients routinely must overcome. Audio recordings of the panel discussions from the 2017 AILA EB-5 Investors Summit are now available for purchase from the AILA website.

WHAT DOES THE EB-5 INVESTOR VISA OFFER?

EB-5 status creates permanent U.S. residency for investors who create jobs in the United States (and their immediate family members). The investment amount is a minimum $1,000,000 in most regions or a minimum $500,000 in targeted rural or high-unemployment regions. The investment must create at least ten full-time jobs. The EB-5 visa does not require a sponsor or a labor certification.

Determining an international investor’s best immigration option is never easy. The experienced immigration attorneys at MC Law Group help investors by offering experienced counsel, sound legal insights, and aggressive representation. Our practice includes business and employment immigration and investment and trader visas.
