These are challenging times to practice immigration law. The attacks of 9/11 have a lot to do with it, of course. One lawyer sums up the sea change with a simple observation: The agency that oversees immigration used to be part of a department called “Justice.” Now it’s part of “Homeland Security.” But economic concerns about jobs and wages are also a factor in the increasingly difficult path to visas, green cards, and citizenship. The result is what has been described as “a culture of �no’ ” for prospective immigrants. And that’s where these 10 lawyers come in. They’re the attorneys to call when the company needs skilled workers here — fast. Or when the consequences of being deported are catastrophic. Or when every avenue for obtaining a visa seems to have been exhausted. These lawyers win the kind of praise from clients seldom heard in any other practice: “I’d easily give her my left kidney.” “We call her the blue-eyed angel.” “He saved my life.”
