What does it mean to be a VERIFIED member of EB5Investors.com?

EB5Investors.com verifies attorney members before placing them on our directory. Not all professionals pass the verification process, and we are not paid by members in any way for verified badges. The entire verification process is performed by EB5Investors.com staff members based in Irvine, California.

We perform a background check on the member by using BeenVerified.com’s online background check tool. The BeenVerified.com criminal background database is compiled by pulling together public records. Misconduct, such as a proven criminal record, disqualifies the applicant from obtaining a verified badge from EB5Investors.com. For attorneys that practice law in the United States, a staff member also checks to make sure the attorney is in good standing with the BAR of the state they represent to practice bar in.

The Verified Badge does not mean or represent that the attorney has experience or specializes in immigration law. Please consult the State Bar or other government based sites for more information on a particular attorney.
