CITATION UPON INDUCTION INTO THE COLLEGE
Greg Siskind is an extraordinary lawyer, an innovative, intelligent entrepreneur and a good and kind man. He has not only talked the talk (He must certainly be one of the most prolific writers on the subject of law firm management, technology and immigration law known to man!) but he walks the walk. By demonstrating how it is actually done – and succeeding while doing it – Greg has outdone almost all of us. There is nothing to compare with Siskind Susser’s www.VisaLaw.com. And that is because — there is nothing to compare with Greg Siskind.
