Garfinkel Immigration Law Firm is pleased to announce the formation of an Education Specialty Practice Group (SPG).
The new practice group will centralize and expand on the Firm’s decades of experience developing innovative legal solutions for clients in the education field, including teachers, professors, administrators and infrastructure personnel.
The group will be led by Partner William R. Hummel, who will work alongside a highly qualified team of paralegals and professional staff. They will concentrate on strategizing best immigration practices for private, public and charter schools of all sizes as well as colleges and universities in the Carolinas, the Southeast region and across the United States. Hummel and several of the team’s paralegals are fluent in Spanish.
“I am excited about the new capacity that the Education Specialty Practice Group brings to our firm,” Hummel said. “This group will consolidate our already vast expertise in the education sector and focus exclusively on guiding current and future clients in the education field through the immigration process.”
Hummel has more than 10 years of experience navigating the complex licensure requirements for professionals in the education field. He is also certified as a specialist in immigration law by the North Carolina State Bar, the highest level of specialization attainable in the state.
“Given the current teacher shortage, schools and universities are looking more and more beyond traditional methods to fill open positions,” Hummel said. “Many teaching professionals across the globe have years of experience that will be of great value in the United States. We are excited to partner with these professionals and schools to help them meet their short and long-term personnel and organizational needs. Educators change lives.”
