On Friday, February 17, Miller Mayer immigration attorneys Steve Yale-Loehr and Dave Wilks will present an immigration seminar to students at the Rochester Institute of Technology. This seminar will provide guidance to those students seeking to enter the U.S. workforce, as well as those hoping to start their own businesses. Immigration can have many pitfalls for foreign students after graduation, especially if the foreign student hopes to start a business in the U.S. Limits on where an employee can work, as well as authorized time in the U.S., can throw a wrench in a student’s professional goals. In the morning, Dave and Steve will speak at the University of Rochester Simon School of Business discussing the EB-5 visa program and other paths for immigrant entrepreneurs. For more information, please e-mail Dave at or Steve at
