In her practice, Lyndsay Stiff combines her love of international travel with a passionate devotion to helping people fulfill their aspirations. “I have always wanted to practice in an area of law that helps people improve their lives for the better,” she says. At FGI, Lyndsay enjoys being able to use her international skills on a daily basis in order to help people achieve their longstanding dreams by starting their lives in the United States.
At FGI, Lyndsay works with clients in the automotive, IT, and medicine sectors, especially with petitioners in the H-1B and L-1 employment-based visa categories. She also has extensive background experience with EB-1A, EB-1B, EB-2 NIW, and O-1A petitions. She prizes the talents and skills that immigrants bring to their adopted country, and sees her role as facilitating success stories. “Immigration law means that I get to help people achieve their goals and dreams,” she states. “As the great-granddaughter of immigrants, this – to me – is the best use of my law degree.”
Lyndsay earned dual Bachelor’s degrees in Russian and East Asian Studies-Japan from Michigan State University, and dual Master’s degrees in Russian, Eastern European & Eurasian Studies and Asian Studies (Japan) from the University of Michigan.
