With a practice dedicated to immigration matters, Stephanie Grattan  anticipates clients’ concerns, understands their business needs, and helps solve immigration-related challenges.

She represents companies across many industries on Form I-9 employment eligibility verification, E-Verify compliance, and worksite compliance and investigation matters.
