Matthew Morse has been practicing employment-based immigration law for over 20 years. He has experience with many areas of Green Card processing including PERM labor applications, immigrant visa petitions, and Adjustment of Status applications. He has experience with naturalization issues and applications, family-based immigration matters and many nonimmigrant visa categories, including the B, E, F, H, K, L, O, R, and TN categories, as well as consular processing matters. He has strong knowledge of federal immigration statutes and regulations. “Keeping clients informed of changes in the law, and what those changes might mean for their immigration objectives is crucial,” he says. “Companies need to know that we are giving them the most current information, and guidance in a timely manner, so that adjustments to their talent mobility strategies may be made accordingly.”
As a Partner at FGI, Matthew’s experience also includes case processing for PERM labor applications, Multi-National Managers and Executives, Extraordinary Ability Aliens, National Interest Waivers, and various nonimmigrant case processing for the H-1B, L-1, O-1, E-2, E-3, TN, and B-1 categories. In addition, he has extensive experience in advising clients on how mergers, acquisitions, and corporate reorganizations may impact both immigrant and nonimmigrant case processing. He makes recommendations to clients as to how to handle such corporation restructurings as they relate to various immigration matters and/or successor-in-interest petition filings.
Matthew has published numerous articles in Immigration Daily (ILW.com) and International Law Office (internationallawoffice.com), as well as Lexology and Mondaq, and has been a speaker for immigration webinars offered by ILW and the Knowledge Group. He is also a member of the American Immigration Lawyers Association (AILA).
Matthew has held internships with the Michigan Attorney General’s Office, the Wayne County Prosecutor’s Office, and the Michigan Department of Environmental Quality. He also practiced in the areas of gaming law, real property law, and contract law. His interest in immigration law developed out of these experiences and out of a desire to help businesses and individuals navigate federal immigration laws. “I see my role as making this process as clear and manageable as possible for our clients. It is important to listen to the client and interact with them in a meaningful way.”
