About Prizant Law
Svetlana Prizant is the President and Managing Attorney of Prizant Law, a practice concentrating exclusively on the areas of US Immigration and Nationality law.
Using legal experience combined with an understanding of the immigrant communities she represents, she has repeatedly obtained extraordinary results for her clients. Mrs. Prizant began her practice with the sole intent of providing one-to-one service to all of her clients. Her interest in immigration law stems from her personal background as well as her belief in the essential role immigrants play and the positive contributions they make to American society. Having immigrated to the United States she has experienced first hand all phases of the immigration and naturalization process.
While in private practice in the most densely immigrant-populated area of the United States, Queens, New York, Mrs. Prizant handled immigration matters ranging from tough criminal deportations, to political asylum, complex family petitions, appeals and
motions to reopen as well as all business related immigration matters. As a New York immigration defense lawyer, she has worked with immigrants from all over the world, including Eastern Europe, (Russians, Ukrainians, Uzbekistanis, Georgians, Albanians); Latin America (Colombians, Ecuadorians, Dominicans, Mexicans, El Salvadorians, Hondurans, Guatemalans, etc); the Middle East (Egyptians, Yemenis, etc); The Caribbean, (Haitians, Trinidadians); and The Indian Subcontinent (Indians, Pakistanis, Bangladeshis). Defending immigrants from incredibly diverse backgrounds in the bustling melting pot that is New York City has sensitized Mrs. Prizant to the specific needs and the cultures of clients from all these
regions. Mrs. Prizant is admitted in the New York Appellate Division of the Supreme Court, Second Department. She is also a weekly columnist for the Ladies’ World Magazine.
