Krystal Kirst

Associate Attorney

Krystal Kirst first found her passion for immigration law while serving as a paralegal for Erickson Immigration Group before deciding to complete her law degree. She graduated Summa Cum Laude from The Columbus School of Law at the Catholic University of America in 2017 with a Certificate in Comparative and International law. 

Over her ten years of experience in business immigration, Krystal has become specialized in petitions for individuals of extraordinary ability (O-1 & EB-1). She has also had the opportunity to hone her legal skills by working on complex immigration issues further complicated by recent shifts in U.S. immigration policies, including increased H-1B scrutiny, elimination of deference for prior approvals, USCIS international office closures, employment-based green card interviews, changes to H-1B visa lottery process, public charge rule, navigating travel restrictions and visa suspensions, and more. 

Krystal understands that the work she does impacts the lives of her clients, and she strives to make each immigration journey as painless and efficient as possible.
