As an attorney for FGI, Michael Morton specializes in employment immigration law, especially in non-immigrant visas, such as H-1B, L-1A, and L-1B petitions, and immigrant filings, such as Immigrant Petitions and Adjustment of Status filings. He brings to his position a solid commitment to mastering the ever-changing complexities of immigration law and to working with his clients to realize their global talent mobility objectives. “As attorneys,” he says, “we must be knowledgeable about our area of the law, strategic in our approach, and empathetic and attentive to the needs of our clients.”
Michael incorporates the skills he developed in his former career as a high school teacher into his current practice, carefully explaining immigration law to his clients and showing how it applies to their specific situations. His teaching experience and family history have also given him a strong appreciation for the contributions that immigrants have made to American society. “I am very cognizant of my ancestry and the stories of my family who came over to the United States,” he avers, “and I am inspired to help others who are seeking opportunity in the U.S.”
He graduated with a Bachelor of Arts from Western Michigan University and his J.D. from the Thomas M. Cooley Law School. Michael is licensed in the State of Michigan and is a member of the American Immigration Lawyers Association (AILA). In his free time, he is active in the arts.
