About the Author:

Robert C. Divine is a Partner and leader of the Immigration Group of Baker Donelson, a law firm of over 550 lawyers and public policy advisors with offices in 13 cities from Washington, D.C. to New Orleans.

Mr. Divine has over 25 years of immigration law experience and served in Washington, D.C. from July 2004 until November 2006 as the first presidentially appointed Chief Counsel of United States Citizenship & Immigration Services (USCIS), the world's largest immigration services agency within the Department of Homeland Security (DHS). From July 2005 until July 2006, he served as Acting Director and then Acting Deputy Director of USCIS. In early 2004 he served as an expert for the U.S. Commission on International Religious Freedom evaluating the impact on asylum claims from DHS' implementation of expedited removal procedures.

He has practiced immigration law since 1986 and in the last several years has chaired the American Immigration Lawyers Association's "Inter-Agency" Committee and its Liaison Committee to the U.S. Department of State. He has served as an expert witness in U.S. and foreign courts.

His practice includes all aspects of U.S. immigration law, representing large and small international and domestic employers, investors, developers, regional centers, family sponsors, and individual foreign nationals. He has also litigated significant business matters, including class action employment discrimination, contract, commercial, product liability, antitrust, ERISA benefits, business torts (including RICO, misrepresentation, Consumer Protection Act), and immigration-related criminal matters.


Having Immigration Practice is like having an AILA mentor sitting beside you at work. Your real-world examples, suggestions and strategies make the morass of laws and regulations comprehensible. --R. Mike Borland, Borland & Borland, Attorneys at Law, P.C., Midland, Texas

Immigration Practice is excellent and very practical. I use it for my Immigration Law classes. My students appreciate the focus on the real-life practice of Immigration Law, as opposed to the theory and policy of immigration. The charts regarding eligibility for various visas and forms of relief are indispensable for students and practitioners alike. --David C. Koelsch, Assistant Professor and Director, Immigration Law Clinic, University of Detroit Mercy School of Law, named by AILA as Outstanding Immigration Law Professor for 2009

Immigration Practice is a handy reference work for both the novice and the experienced practitioner with a novel organizational approach that focuses on real life situations rather than the statutory category. --Daryl Buffenstein, Partner at Berry Appleman & Luden LLP
