A graduate of Brooklyn Law School, I started The Peri Edelman Law Firm in 1996 to be a fierce advocate for my immigration clients. In my near 25 years practicing Immigration Law, I have seen almost every type of immigration case imaginable, and I have helped clients obtain countless green cards, foreign work visas, and have prevented hundreds of immigrants from being deported.
My legal defense of an early case in my career ultimately led to the Child Citizenship Act of 2000, a law that allows foreign-born, biological, and adopted children of U.S. citizens to acquire U.S. citizenship if they satisfy certain requirements before the age of 18.
I am also a passionate immigration law reform advocate whose suggestions were included in George W. Bush's 2000 presidential platform.
Following in the footsteps of my father, I am a second-generation immigration attorney admitted to the New York and Connecticut Bars, U.S. Eastern District Court of New York, U.S. Southern District Court of New York, and United States Court of Appeals for the 2nd Circuit.
