You are probably wondering what this website is all about. I suggest Starting Here to find the best path to get you up to speed.
You will also find out why I created the site and how best to use it.
Now you are probably thinking… Who is behind this website?
Well that is me, Mark Deal, (and a small team of talented folks that helped me craft the technology behind this site). I have been working in the immigration industry for almost 6 years. I co-founded a company that provided business services for foreign nationals and the immigration attorneys that support them. I really grew to love this work and started the U.S. Immigration Podcast two years ago. You would think that would be it, Nope! You see, through many articles, published interviews, panel discussions (and private discussions with so many other Immigration attorneys) I learned a lot more. I stumbled upon a format that was really palatable to the immigration community. I also found that many of the attorneys that become experts in their field, had a hard time finding new clients. In 2015 I left the company I co-founded and starting working side-by-side with solo practitioners and small law firms. I did everything from business intelligence analysis (thanks to my MBA and corporate experience), Process planning and digital optimization (thanks to my own startup) and marketing systems (based on what worked for me and my interview guests). This site is new, so I’ll add actual testimonials later. I then realized that not every attorney could afford me. Even if they could, there is only so much I and my small team could do on a one off scale to really make an impact on not just our clients (which are very happy), but the industry as a whole. To serve my mission, I need to reach as many people that need immigration help as possible.
Facilitating great Immigration information for those that need it – THAT is the driving force behind this site.
I still offer private 1-off consulting solutions for immigration firms, if you want to know more or have any other general questions please use this contact form If you want to know more about my professional background, my journey as a parent, or what a geek I am.. I’m pretty transparent on social media to my connections, friends, and followers.
