Michael Piston – Senior Attorney at ILOLA has 34 years experience exclusively in the area of immigration law and is considered one of the most foremost authorities on immigration law. 
As recently reported in
Mother Jones magazine, he is one of a handful of litigators in the US who have been successfully suing the USCIS to overcome H-1B denials/ F-1 Denials and Adjustment of Status denials.
He has won scores of successful settlements and/or courtroom victories.
Recently, he became the first attorney to win a published decision granting an H-1B non-immigrant a “preliminary injunction” allowing him to continue to work and live in the United States while his lawsuit against the USCIS was pending.
