Garfinkel Immigration Law Firm Partner Colleen Molner has been named to the Super Lawyers' 2020 North Carolina Rising Stars list.

She has extensive experience in the preparation of complex nonimmigrant and immigrant visa petitions, including extraordinary ability petitions, multinational executive and manager petitions, H-1B petitions, E-2 treaty investor applications, L-1 blanket applications and responses to Requests for Evidence.

In addition, Molner advises employers on compliance issues and best practices, and she conducts internal I-9 audits for employers.

As an active member of the Mecklenburg County Bar, Molner serves as Chair of the organization's Law Day Committee, Vice Chair of the Immigration & Naturalization section and as a member of the Leadership Institute Committee. She has also been named to Who's Who Legal and the Business North Carolina (BNC) Legal Elite list.

Molner graduated magna cum laude from North Carolina State University in 2010 and received her J.D. from Elon University School of Law in 2013.
