  • Michael E Piston

Michael E. Piston is an EB-5 immigration attorney and senior partner at the firm of Piston & Carpenter, located in Troy, Mich. Attorney Piston has practiced U.S. immigration law exclusively for over 25 years and has overseen the filing of over 10,000 successful employment-based permanent residency applications and has filed an equal number of nonimmigrant employment-based petitions. His practice focuses on the representation of foreign professionals and employers in employment-based immigration cases. However, Piston & Carpenter also handles other immigration matters, including mandamus actions in federal court, LCA audit defenses, and Administrative Procedure Act judicial review.

Piston & Carpenter represents a wide range of employers and individuals in various industries. However, the majority of the firm’s business involves the representation of individuals in the computer software consulting industry. Experience with such a fast moving industry has caused Piston & Carpenter to develop a skill in filing fast, accurate nonimmigrant visa petitions. The firm also deals extensively in USCIS litigation, particularly the filing of lawsuits related to L and H visa petition denials. The firm does accept immigration court cases, but only after careful examination of the merits.

Attorney Piston has found that filing immigration related lawsuits in federal court can be an effective way of resolving the government’s errors. He has also found that the government reverses itself in over 50 percent of such cases within two to four months of filing, which negates the need for a judicial ruling. Attorney Piston can secure positive judgments for clients even when other attorneys have deemed their cases to be hopeless. By pursuing unusual legal courses or by being more aggressive than other immigration lawyers, attorney Piston is often able to revive these seemingly hopeless cases.

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.
