Valery Milgrom  Attorney Valery Milgrom came to the idea of legal practice which is a cross between immigration and intellectual property laws as a result of his own personal experiences. First of all, he is a first-generation American himself and went through the entire immigration maze without help from anybody. Second, he possesses degrees and diplomas in Mechanical Engineering and Journalism from the former USSR and became the first Russian-speaking Master of Intellectual Property (MIP) in the US. Today Valery Milgrom possesses a license of a patent attorney, is a member of New York and New Jersey State Bars, American Association of Immigration Attorneys (AILA), Intellectual Property Section of the New York State Bar Association (NYSBA – IP Section), and Licensing Executive Society (LES USA – Canada).
Says Milgrom, "We are not a law firm in a conventional sense. Each of us has his own legal practice, his own clients. We work together only on the matters of intellectual property protection as each of us specializes in a certain area of technology. Working together helps to better understand and evaluate innovations suggested by a client, establish professional contacts necessary for commercialization of inventions, and sometimes, working as expert witnesses, convince the U.S. Immigration Service in importance of a particular invention for the American economy.
"I'd like to add that I feel very privileged and lucky having met in my professional career many talented colleagues who eventually became my friends. Such as Boris Palant, a seasoned immigration counsel, who over a quarter of century won hundreds of political asylum cases for his own and our mutual clients. Such as Sidney N. Georgiou, a real encyclopedia of legal knowledge, whose experience of working as a New York Supreme Court attorney proved invaluable time and again. Such as Maria Kron, a former attorney for the City of New York. They helped me a lot and still give me a hand when I need it for which I am very grateful.
"I hope that you, Dear Visitor, will become our client. And should you do so, I hope you'll be pleased with the quality of our services."
