The CLINIC Legal Team 

IMPORTA is a member of the CLINIC legal immigration network, the largest such network in the  United states. CLINIC provides backing for all of its members through educational programs and through its staff of 15 experienced immigration attorneys under the direction of Charles Wheeler (left), a nationally recognized expert in immigration law. Caution is one of IMPORTA's fundamental principles, and many complicated cases are checked out with one of these attorneys before submission.
