Founder and principal attorney, Zjantelle Cammisa Markel, arrived to the United States in 2000 from her hometown of Adelaide, South Australia, with the intention of a brief visit. Two decades, a husband, four children and a giant bernedoodle later, New York has become her home, and enabling other people’s American aspirations to happen isn’t just her work, but her passion.

Zjantelle’s career spans Sydney, London, Rome and New York. This international experience gives her a unique understanding of European, Australian and American culture, laws and business practices. Her Australian background and specialization in processing E-3 visas make Zjantelle particularly popular with Australian clientele. Several well-established Australian media and news organizations including the Australian Financial Review, have quoted Zjantelle and sought her opinions related to U.S. immigration law during times of uncertainty and international crises like the current COVID-19 pandemic.

Zjantelle has been honored by her professional peers and colleagues as a “Super Lawyer” (top 5% in her field of law) for the New York Metro area every year since 2013 and has been recognized in Super Lawyers magazine and in the New York Times Magazine (March in each of those years) as one of the top female lawyers in New York City.
