Blaine Coleman’s practice as an immigration attorney is deeply informed by his advocacy for refugees’ and migrants’ rights. “Immigrants come from rich civilizations, often overflowing with valuable national resources” he says. “You can see how these immigrants have visibly enriched their new home countries, performing the work that civilization depends on: as physicians, engineers, professors, builders, farmers, and shopkeepers.” In his many years in immigration law, he has helped numerous clients achieve their aspirations. Immigrants are “eager to invest their ingenuity and their human capital into rebuilding the nation’s urban infrastructure,” he explains, “and I advocate for investing our treasury into that rebuilding.”
At FGI, Blaine specializes in H-1, L-1, and TN visas for the IT and engineering sectors. He takes pride in the high volume of employment-based immigration cases that he has completed for FGI as it “benefits everyone involved,” in his view.
A graduate of the College of William and Mary, where he earned his bachelor’s degree, Blaine completed a J.D. from the Drake University Law School and a certificate from the Institute on International and Comparative Law (Paris)/University of San Diego School of Law program. In his spare time, he has an interest in history, poetry, travel (France, UK, Germany, Italy, Iran, Greece, Norway, Turkey, Sweden) music, art galleries, and concert going.
