Seyfarth Shaw’s Angelo Paparelli, Immigration partner in Los Angeles, was recognized as a top lawyer in his field by the Daily Journal.
The Daily Journal detailed Paparelli’s work regarding AB 450, a state law passed earlier this year that requires employers to request judicial warrants from immigration agents before they inspect workplaces. Paparelli told the Daily Journal that some employers requesting a warrant have been told they would have employee visas denied for noncooperation.
“I've advised employers to try to take the issue up the organizational hierarchy so as to create an effort at cooperation,” Paparelli told the Daily Journal. He added that he has questioned the government about their authority to deny visas.
