Senior Attorney, Candida Paris, Speaks at the 2019 University of Texas’ Continuing Legal Education Conference on Immigration and Nationality Law
November 6, 2019 (Austin, TX)- Senior Immigration Attorney, Candida O. Paris, of the immigration law firm, Fong Ilagan, LLP, was invited to speak at the 43rd Annual Conference on Immigration and Nationality Law for Continuing Legal Education (CLE) hosted by the University of Texas (UT) School of Law in Austin, Texas.
Candida represented the firm in Austin at the Double Tree by Hilton Hotel on Friday, October 24, 2019. She presented alongside Dallas immigration attorney, Rebecca Massiatte of JMA Firm, PLLC, on the O-1 nonimmigrant visa classification. The presentation titled, “The World’s Got Talent! The U.S. Might Have a Golden Buzzer for You,” focused on the O visa options for aliens of extraordinary ability in science, education, business, athletics, the arts, and tv and motion picture industries. “The O visa category is commonly overlooked as a great opportunity for foreign nationals seeking temporary employment in the U.S.,” says Candida. She continues, “I am glad to have had the opportunity to discuss this visa category with immigration attorneys. I hope the attorneys in attendance will consider the O nonimmigrant visa category when representing clients who qualify.”
