Attorney Profile

I am the senior partner of Goldblum & Pollins one of the largest and, I believe, best employment-based immigration firms in the Country. My clients include some of Pennsylvania's and the Delaware Valley's largest and most prestigious universities and hospitals including: the Pennsylvania System of Higher Education and its 14 state universities (I am the ONLY immigration attorney authorized to provide immigration representation); the University of Delaware (I am the only immigration attorney authorized to provide such represenation);  the University of Pennsylvania and its health system (one of, now, 2 authorized attorneys); Drexel University and its health system; Temple University and its health system; Penn State Hershey Medical Center and Children's Hospital of Philadelphia (CHOP). As such, I am considered on the best attorneys in the country on cases that MOST impact foreign faculty and scientists: namely, Special Recruitment cases (I continuously update my seminal article); and on EB-1 Outstanding Researcher cases.  

In 2014, I  authored a key article on Employment Compliance and spoke at several conferences.  On November 6, 2014  I will be presenting a POSTER presentation at the regional conference of NAFSA (National Association of Foreign Student Advisors)--entitled Lobby or Lose (about the changes that must be made in our immigration laws to keep foreign students coming to the U.S.). I also am on an Immigration Task Force (representing the Anti-Defamation League-ADL) that advocates for immigration reform. In December 2014, I will be speaking at the Montgomery County Bar Association on E-2 Investor Visas. 

I am am 'Ambassador" for the Philadelphia Chamber of Commerce's Select Philadelphia and, as such, meet with Foreign Investors and Exectives of Foreign Companies--to explain our immigration laws and encourage them to invest in Philadlephia and Pennsylvania. I also am on the National Board of the ADL, on the Board of Dignity Housing (that provides transitional housing and life skills to the formerly homeless) and on the advisory board of Mural Arts.
