[ IMMIGRATION ATTORNEYS ]
Jennifer Hermansky first began working on EB-5 investor
cases in 2009, and subsequently added regional center matters
to her repertoire. She has since been involved in more than
50 regional center projects and has handled hundreds of
investor petitions. Jennifer works at the Philadelphia office of
Greenberg Traurig, LLP and is part of the firm’s EB-5 team.
She has devoted her entire practice to EB-5 because she is
truly passionate about it, allowing her to build a thorough
understanding of the process.
With a degree in finance and a background handling
entrepreneurial cases for clients seeking E-2 or L-1 visas,
Jennifer is intimately familiar with the business immigration
process and applies this knowledge to all of her EB-5 cases. She
is knowledgeable about the EB-5 program from start to finish,
helping investors from the moment they decide to file until
they become U.S. citizens, and counseling regional centers on
issues of management, staffing and job creation.
Because she has worked with so many individual EB-5
petitioners, and knows exactly what they are looking for in a
project, Jennifer has a unique perspective in the area of regional
center development. She assists with business plans, economic
reports and securities offerings, ensuring that each is EB-5compliant and marketable to foreign investors. Jennifer finds it
very satisfying to work on a successful project with tangible and
profitable results, while also seeing immigrants receive green cards.
David Hirson has been involved with EB-5 cases since the
program’s inception in 1990, placing him among the most
experienced active EB-5 immigration attorneys in the nation.
He was present in the U.S. Senate when EB-5 legislation was
originally proposed, and debated and subsequently filed one of
the first ever cases for a family from Taiwan. In fact, David filed
many of the EB-5 cases that received approval during the first
10 years of the EB-5 program.
With over 30 years of experience practicing immigration law,
David originally took on EB-5 cases because of the variety of
legal work involved and the challenge of structuring compliant
transactions, which he found to be far more interesting than
regular business immigration work. He also appreciates
the sense of achieving a win-win-win for the United States,
developers and individual immigrants, at no cost to U.S.
taxpayers. He sees the industry continuing to expand with the
hope that the regional center program will become permanent,
and the method of counting visa numbers for investors and
their dependents will be improved.
For more than 20 years David has been certified by the State
Bar of California’s Board of Legal Specialization as a Specialist
in Immigration and Nationality Law. He regularly travels to
China and other countries, and has developed relationships
with top providers who source investors for EB-5 projects
in each country. Additionally, he attends trade shows, gives
