Galati & Grode Once Again Named as Super Lawyers Rising Stars

Matthew Galati and Jonathan Grode

Green and Spiegel is pleased to announce that U.S. Practice Director Jonathan Grode and Senior Associate Matthew Galati were once again named as “Rising Stars” by Super Lawyers magazine. This year marks the seventh straight selection for Grode, who was first named in 2012. Galati was selected for the third time, having received the honor in 2016 and 2017. Their selections were published in the organization’s May 2018 Pennsylvania and Delaware issue and will also be featured in the June 2018 edition of Philadelphia Magazine.

The goal of Super Lawyers is to provide a current and comprehensive state-by-state catalog of the most outstanding lawyers as a resource for attorneys and consumers seeking legal counsel. Super Lawyers annually selects attorneys from all firm sizes and over 70 practice areas throughout the United States using a multiphase selection process. This lengthy vetting method includes a combination of independent research alongside peer nominations and evaluations. No more than 5% of attorneys state-wide can be selected as a Super Lawyer, while only 2.5% of attorneys under 40 or practicing law for 10 years or less can be named a Rising Star.

Grode serves as the Firm’s U.S. Practice Director, managing all operations in the United States and serving as counsel to corporations of all sizes. Galati focuses his practice running the firm’s U.S. Investors and Entrepreneurs Division with a particular emphasis in assisting prospective immigrants and companies navigate the EB-5 visa’s requirements.

Green and Spiegel is one of North America’s oldest immigration law practices with over 50 years of experience assisting a diverse global clientele and a role as thought leaders on both sides of the U.S.-Canadian border. The Firm is headquartered in Toronto, Canada with U.S. offices in Philadelphia, PA, Providence, RI, and Vail, CO.

With a U.S. practice founded in the early 1990s, Green and Spiegel offers a full range of inbound immigration services for employers, temporary workers, individuals and their families. Expanding upon the Firm’s Canadian roots, the U.S. practice represents clients operating in the healthcare, insurance, professional sports, information technology, and many other industries.

Employment-Based I-485s: Ability to Use the Earlier Date for Filing Charts May Come to a Close

Back in September, United States Citizenship and Immigration Services (“USCIS”) was allowing applicants to file their I-485 applications for adjustment of status in both the employment-based and the family-based categories according to the earlier-in-time Filing Date Charts. Put another way, USCIS has been accepting Form I-485 filings for all prospective qualifying immigrants before a visa number is technically available. Green and Spiegel has been filing our clients’ files in light of this change for months, however, it appears that this will shortly come to an end. Learn more here.
