Alexandra Tseitlin: a career that tells a story about life

Alexandra Tseitlin has been practicing law in New York City for the past 30 years.  In the course of her extensive career Ms. Tseitlin has acquired varied experience with immigration law — an area requiring constant attention to ever-changing interpretations and evolving opportunities for her clients who hope to live and work in the United States.  Ms. Tseitlin’s personal background has guided her in her legal practice. She came to the United States as a refugee from the former Soviet Union and New York City has been her home for the past forty years.  She graduated from Barnard College, Columbia University, with a B.A. in Economics, in 1983, and earned her J.D. from Cardozo School of Law in 1987.


For more than thirty years of practicing law, Ms. Tseitlin has zealously and successfully represented scores of immigrants in all types of family and employment-based proceedings before the USCIS, Labor Department, Immigration Courts and in Federal Courts.  Ms. Tseitlin clients are artists, actors, athletes, scientists, accountants, architects, computer professionals, writers, businessman and other workers.  Ms. Tseitlin’s skills and experience are particularly relevant presently and she is committed to achieving the best results for her clients who are navigating the complex immigration system.

Important changes are taking place in this area of legislation, the Congress and the President have expressed their clear intention of addressing the issue of legal and illegal immigration in an organic way. The scenario will therefore be very different, but America is still the land of the opportunities and the American dream is still alive, and the economy signals to be strong and durable. The United States, therefore, remains a favorite destination for those who want to build a successful life prospect.

Ms. Tseitlin is a member of the New York Association of Criminal Defense Lawyers, the National Association of Criminal Defense Lawyers, American Immigration Lawyers Association, New York County Lawyers Association, Brooklyn and Queens Bar Associations.
