Steven A. Clark

Founding Partner (1944-2020)

Steve has been the “go to guy” on business immigration for several decades. As national president of the 15,000 member bar association of immigration lawyers (AILA) he successfully advocated for AC 21, the law which provided 60,000 additional H-1B visas per year and allows certain applicants for permanent residence to extend their H visa beyond the normal 6 year limit. He authored over 100 publications on immigration topics, including employment-based petitions, PERM, H, O, and L visas, and edited many as well. He was editor of the chapter on Labor Certification in the treatise Immigration Law and Practice (Lexis/Nexis) and has been listed as one of “The Best Lawyers in America” under the immigration heading since its inception over two decades ago and is rated “AV,” the highest rating conferred by Martindale-Hubbell, an authoritative, independent rating service. Steve is also a founding Fellow of ABIL, the Alliance of Business Immigration Lawyers, and a founding member of IMMLAW®, the national consortium of preeminent immigration firms with over two centuries of combined immigration law experience.
