[HOT] [Q] Do I choose immigration attorney first or Regional Center first?
This is a "chicken or egg" question, and there is no single right answer for everyone. It depends on your preference, but do note that in practice, many regional centers in practice require a particular immigration attorney(s) to file and submit EB-5 applications. The biggest problem for most potential EB-5 investors is that they do not know which RC Program is suitable for them; and although there is no easy answer, we believe ultimately the best guidance is the track record; the problem is only a handful of regional centers have significant track record so far. Therefore, you may want to first choose a knowledgeable and experienced immigration attorney and talk it over with the immigration attorney as to several regional centers which may fit your likes and dislikes and risks profile.
