Zach Ahlstrom, Esq.

Senior Associate Attorney

Zach Ahlstrom started with Berardi Immigration Law as a law clerk during his second year of law school in March 2017. He passed the bar exam in October 2018 and officially joined our team as an Associate Attorney in January 2019. He focuses on a wide range of petitions, including everything from employment-based nonimmigrant and immigrant petitions, to marriage-based green cards and naturalization applications. Beginning on his first day with our firm, it was immediately clear that he was destined to be an immigration attorney. He possesses a unique ability to write and has developed a deep understanding of the complexity and nuance that is natural to U.S. immigration law and regulations.

Zach graduated summa cum laude from Mercyhurst University in 2014, with a degree in Political Science. He then went on to pursue a law degree from the University at Buffalo School of Law. While attending law school, Zach was a writing fellow for two years. In his spare time, he enjoys golfing, baseball, and riding his bike – anything to get him outdoors.


• Juris Doctor, University at Buffalo School of Law, 2018
• Bachelors of Arts and Sciences, Summa cum Laude, Mercyhurst University, 2014
