Upon his return to Buffalo, NY, Sam became known throughout North America as an expert Free Trade Officer. During his time as a Free Trade Officer at the Peace Bridge, he inspected, on average, 75-80 applicants per week for TN status and 35-50 applicants per week for L-1 status. He became proficient in inspecting applicants, reviewing corporate documents, and adjudicating work applications.
Sam now brings those three decades of government experience, and his unique insider’s perspective, to Berardi Immigration Law where he works exclusively on the analysis of NAFTA category employment-based visa cases. He is also available to accompany clients to the Peace Bridge for the presentation of their cases to the government.
When he isn’t assisting our firm, Sam is a family man who proudly wears the titles of son, husband, father, and grandfather.
