The firm of Akst & Akst PLLC is a boutique American immigration law firm founded by George Akst in 1977. The members of our team hail from many countries around the world. We have the ability to speak to our clients in Russian, Hungarian, Ukrainian, German, Spanish and Portuguese. Although located in New York City, we represent international clients wishing to relocate anywhere in the United States. Our clients are located in all 50 states and over 100 countries.

As a family firm, we are sensitive to the real-life stresses and issues of relocating to the U.S. We recognize that maneuvering through our complex immigration laws presents many challenges and requires a great deal of cooperation and communication between attorney and client. We know that each case is unique and poses its own particular set of issues. At Akst & Akst, we develop individualized strategies customized for each client’s unique circumstances. We work very closely with each client, ensuring that each client is apprised of any developments in his or her case and any updates in the law until the case reaches final adjudication.

Leading immigration Law Firm

Dedicated to Client Service

Our firm provides personalized service to both individuals and corporate clients alike.

We represent companies in a variety of industries, including computer consulting companies needing systems analysts or other IT workers; jewelry companies needing marketing managers or designers; major medical and mental health care organizations needing social workers, psychologists and other health care professionals as well as many other industries.

We have a large following among major athletes and entertainers. We have represented many Olympic, professional and other world class athletes and coaches in such varied sports as Figure Skating, Ice Hockey, Waterskiing, Tennis, MMA and Squash to name a few. We have also completed many successful visa applications for musicians, artists and entertainers ranging from Broadway performers to classical violinists and harpists to ceramic artists and graphic designers.

We also represent entrepreneurs who wish to invest money into their own companies in the US and need an investor’s visa to work in the US to make that company thrive and grow.

Our firm can also assist individuals who are applying for a green card for their foreign-born spouses and families, graduating college students applying for their first work visa (H-1B), or visitors who want to extend their tourist visas for an additional period of time (B-1/B-2).

Good communication between client and attorney is essential to a successful outcome. We stay in regular contact with our clients throughout the visa process.
