More About Jake

The ever-changing immigration landscape is highly complex and can be anxiety-inducing for both foreign nationals and employers. Multinational and national companies, including nonprofit and for-profit employers, rely on Jake's counsel for cost-effective, compliant and innovative changes to their immigration programs.

Jake has nearly a decade of immigration experience and has partnered with clients in numerous sectors, including automotive, food and beverage, information technology, geolocation, financial, adhesives, manufacturing, semiconductor, mechanical, civil, construction and nuclear engineering, and more, to develop strategic approaches to maintain compliance on I-9/E-Verify, as well as to develop structural changes to hiring practices and mobility programs.

Jake developed Seyfarth's in-house and best-in-class Request for Evidence models to create a streamlined approach in preparing and filing responses to government inquiries, often involving complex arguments raised by the United States Citizenship & Immigration Services.

Prior to becoming an attorney, Jake served as a law clerk and paralegal for other large international firms, giving him deep insight into the day-to-day challenges that come with case preparation, strategy, data maintenance, and case management. Jake brings cutting-edge advice to case preparation and management techniques, providing optimal and efficient services to his clients.

Jake enjoys partnering with different attorneys within Seyfarth’s highly collaborative Immigration group to communicate about creative ways for Seyfarth clients to navigate the complex immigration landscape.
