Ryan M. Knight, Esq.
Ryan Morgan Knight brings several years of diverse immigration experience to his practice. From handling corporate transfers, family petitions, unskilled labor filings, asylum claims, investment visas, National Interest Waivers, USCIS interviews, religious workers, employment-based green cards, removal proceedings, J-1 physicians, and everything in between, there are few areas within the immigration complex that Ryan is not familiar with. He particularly excels with the most difficult cases – the long-shot H-1B, the small E-2 investment, the start-up L-1, the missed site visit, the struggling artist, etc.
A strong legal writer and extremely well-versed in governing statutes, regulations, and case precedents, he has filed numerous appeals with the AAO, BALCA, BIA, and the 4thCircuit. He has succeeded in handling filings in both boutique and volume-based environments, and he remains constantly engaged in the field by reviewing Congressional legislation, attending panels and conferences, and participating in the notice-and-comment procedures for new regulatory schemes. Ryan has been unfazed by recent changes under the Trump administration because he has always focused on work product above all else; when clients receive a copy of their filing they are confident they received the best legal representation – including the initial filing.
Ryan has represented companies and individuals within the tech, finance, health, and non-profit sectors, and has worked with individuals from all over the world. He is barred in Maryland and licensed to practice U.S. immigration law throughout the U.S. He earned his law degree from WVU College of Law and holds and undergraduate degree in History and Museum Studies from the University of Iowa.
