Michael E. Piston, ESQ.
Michael E. Piston is the senior immigration counsel of Wu Law Group, P.C. He has practiced immigration law exclusively for over 25 years, spoken at numerous American Immigration Lawyers Association (AILA) and ILW.COM conferences and workshops. He has written articles for AILA Annual Conferences Handbooks and the ILW PERM Handbook, and has overseen the successful filing over 10,000 applications for permanent residency (“green cards”). He is now focusing his practice on immigration litigation, including mandamus actions to force the government to take action on long delayed cases and judicial review of the denial of visa petitions (L visa and H visa petition denials) and removal orders. He also accepts immigration court cases, but only after careful examination of the merits.
Attorney Piston has found that filing immigration related lawsuits in federal court can be an effective way of resolving the government’s errors. He has also found that the government reverses itself in over 50% of such cases within two to four months of filing, which negates the need for a judicial ruling. Attorney Piston can secure positive judgments for clients even when other attorneys have deemed their cases to be hopeless. By pursuing unusual legal courses or by being more aggressive than other immigration lawyers, attorney Piston is often able to revive these seemingly hopeless cases.
At the same time, He is an EB-5 immigration attorney who is specialized in both regional center cases and direct EB-5 cases. He has excellent experience in fighting on behalf of investors against failed EB-5 projects and to use his best efforts to retrieve investors’ investment interest.
