Attorney Profile

The founder of Prizant Law, Svetlana Prizant focuses her practice on a variety of immigration matters. An immigrant herself and fluent in Russian as well as in English, she provides representation to people and businesses throughout the borough of Queens and other parts of the greater New York City metropolitan area from the firm’s office in Forest Hills, New York.

Ms. Prizant attended Queens College, part of the City University of New York system, as an undergraduate, and she majored in political science and government and received a Bachelor of Arts in 2006. She then went on to pursue her legal education at St. John’s University School of Law, and in 2011, she was awarded her Juris Doctor. Ms. Prizant became admitted to practice before all New York state courts in the following year.

A significant portion of Ms. Prizant’s practice involves family immigration issues. She has worked with both green card holders and citizens in helping them file petitions in order to enable their fiancées, spouses, minor children, parents, and siblings to emigrate to the United States. Ms. Prizant’s experience outside of the family area has included E-1 visas for treaty traders, E-2 visas for investors, and visas for students, religious workers, people with exceptional abilities, tourists, athletes, teachers, members of the media, and others. Her exceptional track record and high degree of ethics have earned her a great deal of acclaim from her fellow attorneys, including a 10.0 “Superb” peer-review rating through Avvo. In addition, Ms. Prizant has been named to The National Advocates Top 40 Under 40 list. She is a member of the American Immigration Lawyers Association and other professional groups.
