New Immigration Lawyer Has Walked the Walk

Tully Rinckey PLLC of Albany has added immigration law to its practice.

The company hired Artan Serjanej, previously a New York City-based attorney, who not only practices immigration law but is an immigrant himself.

Serjanej entered the United States in 1990 after securing political asylum from Albania. He began his education by completing his own petitions to receive a green card, Social Security card and traveling documents.

In 1997, Serjanej became a legal citizen of the United States. That same year he received his bachelor of arts degree from Binghamton University before going on to complete his law degree at Syracuse University College of Law.

“When working with my clients, I often draw from my own experience as an immigrant,” Serjanej said. “The rules involving immigration are rigid and unforgiving. Having an attorney by their side who has been through the same situation they are going through now has a calming affect.”

Serjanej’s practice area includes the preparation and filing of temporary and permanent visa applications. He is also experienced in petitioning for asylum and immigration defense.

Serjanej plans to lead several seminars on the basics of obtaining visas in the upcoming months.
