At the Forte Law Group, we believe knowledge is power, that is why we frequently offer free FLG Family Workshops throughout the state.

Jeff has experience you may trust and rely on to successfully navigate through PPT meetings, negotiations, hearings, mediations and trials ranging from classroom to courtroom settings. Jeff’s negotiation ability to separate people from the problem, focus on solutions and interests rather than on positions and base outcomes on objective, measurable criteria is what separates him as a top skilled negotiator, litigator and advocate.

USCIS to Begin Accepting Applications under the International Entrepreneur Rule

U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) announced today it is taking steps to implement the International Entrepreneur Rule (IER), in accordance with a recent court decision. Although the IER was published during the previous administration with an effective date of July 17, 2017, it did not take effect because the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) issued a final rule on July 11, 2017, delaying the IER’s effective date until March 14, 2018. This delay rule was meant to give USCIS time to review the IER and, if necessary, to issue a rule proposing to remove the IER program regulations.

However, a Dec. 1, 2017, ruling from the U.S. District Court for the District of Columbia in National Venture Capital Association v. Duke vacated USCIS’ final rule to delay the effective date. The Dec. 1, 2017, court decision is a result of litigation filed in district court on Sept. 19, 2017, which challenged the delay rule.
