Carroll & Scribner, P.C. attorneys are among the most experienced internationally with the EB-5 Immigrant Investor Program, through which businesses may secure private capital from foreign national investors for the development of job-creating commercial enterprises.   We regularly represent immigrant investors, Regional Center developers and project organizers, and we have assisted many dozens of EB-5 investors with their I-526 petitions and their I-829 petitions for removal of conditions, resulting in permanent green cards for these investors and their families.   We have a 100% record of success with I-526 and I-829 petitions filed on behalf of clients worldwide in a variety of EB-5 investment vehicles.   

Ed Carroll is one of a handful of attorneys nationally who represent the American Immigration Lawyers Association (AILA) to the U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services agency, as a member of AILA’s EB-5 Committee.  He has been actively involved with the EB-5 program since its inception.  He is frequently asked to consult with Regional Center developers and project organizers and to provide guidance on the development of EB-5 investment offerings.
