Managing Partner Hannah F. Little, Founder Steven H. Garfinkel as well as Partner William R. Hummel were all recognized for their work in corporate immigration law in the 2023 version of the publication. Little was also honored late last year by Who’s Who Legal with the prestigious Thought Leader designation.
Who’s Who Legal, established in 1996, identifies the “foremost legal practitioners in business law based upon comprehensive, independent research,” and highlights “leading individuals across 35 different areas of corporate and commercial law.”

Garfinkel, Little and Hummel have been practicing for more than 65 years, combined, and all three are certified as Specialists in Immigration Law by the North Carolina State Bar, the highest level of specialization attainable in the state.
