Joseph Whalen is an independent Consultant Offering Articles & Comments here for free.  He is also available for specific and general consultation, research, individual and/or group training--materials and presentation made to order.

He provides highly-individualized training based on consultation with clients. He serves Regional Center Principals and their counsel as well as prospective EB-5 investors who wish to learn to LOOK before they LEAP! He is  not an attorney himself although he has trained numerous attorneys and INS/USCIS adjudicators in complex issues within immigration and nationality law. He does not prepare forms, write business plans, or create economic analyses. He does review them for clients prior to submission, check for errors, and suggest corrections.

He highly recommends that his clients get as deep of an understanding of EB-5 and especially the Role of the Regional Center before moving forward or selecting anyone to prepare a submission or manage a Regional Center for them.
