TechCrunch has selected Alcorn Immigration Law founder Sophie Alcorn as an expert contributor. She will write regular columns on immigration matters for TechCrunch and ExtraCrunch, which offers exclusive articles, resources, and recommendations.
Sophie’s first column, What everyone at a startup needs to know about immigration, appeared on TechCrunch last week. ExtraCrunch managing editor Eric Eldon also interviewed Sophie about founding and building Alcorn Immigration Law and the secrets of her success.
“I’ve been following a set of simple principles that have guided my work that were maybe overkill under the Obama Administration, but are leading to a really high success rate under the Trump Administration,” says Sophie. The Alcorn Immigration Law team has maintained a 95+ percent success rate even as approval rates for most immigration petitions have dropped dramatically.
