Lynn is a Senior Associate Attorney in the Northern Virginia office of Berry Appleman & Leiden LLP. She concentrates her practice on business immigration matters including nonimmigrant and immigrant visa issues, advising clients on every step of the process.  She represents clients in various industries so that US employers can obtain the talent they need when they need it.  Although Lynn has experience with diverse visas types, she devotes most of her time to L-1, H-1B, E-2, and TN processing. Of course, she also enjoys arguing with the government if a Request for Evidence is received in a USCIS filing. She frequently speaks on immigration related topics- including on the unpredictable immigration environment, PERM, and on Consular Processing of L-1 and B-1 visas. Lynn has also successfully handled complex audit requests from the Department of Labor and uses any resources available to zealously represent her clients.

Prior to joining BAL, Lynn served as a Senior Consultant on the USCIS Transformation project, working with leaders and subject matter experts within USCIS. She also served as the Former Chair and Founder of the Immigration Section of the Maryland State Bar Association.
