More About Mahsa

To compete in a global setting, organizations have to be able to attract and employ the right talent. Mahsa helps organizations identify, develop, and implement immigration sponsorship programs to get the people they need, where they need them, and when they need them.

Immigration compliance is also critical for employers. In this context, Mahsa represents companies facing government investigations or audits and she works proactively with companies to develop immigration and compliance policies and conduct internal assessment.

As an immigrant, Mahsa and her family experienced the US immigration process and she knows and understands what individual employees are experiencing. Running a business early on in her life provided her with unique insight into what it takes to not only keep the doors open but to succeed with practicality being foremost in her decisions. That business mindset and sense of pragmatism guides Mahsa's work today as an attorney. As a lawyer practicing and focusing on both the benefits side of immigration as well as compliance means, she looks at strategies and implementation of visa programs a little differently having gone through ICE and DOL investigations. Mahsa is able to help her clients develop and maintain programs with compliance at the forefront.

Mahsa takes advantage of technology and platforms to provide transparency and dependability to her clients. With a strong foundation and platform, she is able to spend time uderstading how the business operates to ensure she is a true partner.

Mahsa is part of an amazing platform where attorneys, paraprofessionals, and operations team members across offices energize each other to continuously innovate. The level of collaboration among some of the thought leaders in immigration is truly exceptional and rewarding.
