Poyner Spruill LLP attorney Jennifer Parser recently earned distinction in the National Law Journal’s 2019 class of Immigration Law Trailblazers. The list of 21 attorneys from across the country honors those making a significant impact through an innovative practice in this specialty area of law.

Parser is a first-generation American who brings appreciation for diverse cultures into her work as an immigration attorney. This appreciation is derived from her personal experience, family background, and extensive overseas study. She left a large law firm to branch out into employment-based immigration work for businesses and qualified individuals — a unique aspect of her work in North Carolina in an area that boasts more Ph.D.s per capita than anywhere else in the United States.

“I love to learn about and, in appropriate cases, foster the intersection of business and academia. For some clients, this effort takes time, but it’s worthwhile on so many levels,” Parser said in the article highlighting her selection to the Immigration Law Trailblazers.

Parser is a multilingual attorney able to handle all immigration matters, with a focus on employment-based and entrepreneurial visas and green cards. She advises on I-9 compliance, oversees and responds to issues relating to employer-generated audits, and assists with Immigration and Customs Enforcement, Social Security Administration, and Department of Labor issues. She also enjoys working with affirmative asylum applicants.

The NLJ’s special 16-page Family Law Trailblazers printed in the May edition and can be viewed at this link. Parser’s feature can be found on page 68.
