  • Elliot is the most knowledgeable consultant I have worked with on behalf of my clients with respect to TEA designations. He has obtained TEA designations in dozens of states, he understands the intricacies of each state’s policy on that issue, and he knows how best to work with each state to obtain a TEA. I would highly recommend that anyone seeking a TEA for their EB-5 project consult with Elliot.

  • I have worked with Mr. Winer in an EB-5 context for over five years and had him assist countless clients in understanding the TEA regulations and successfully obtaining TEA designation letters from various state agencies. Mr. Winer is exceptionally knowledgeable about the TEA certification process in every state and, over the years, has cultivated relationships with the agencies responsible for TEA designation in many states. He is an invaluable resource in understanding TEA designation and a dedicated advocate for shaping the TEA legislation and regulations in a way that accurately and fairly represents the economic and demographic state of an area.
