  • Kirsten Schlenger

    Weaver Schlenger LLP
    550 Montgomery Street
    Suite 650
    San Francisco, California 94111, U.S.A.
  • Business immigration


    Kirsten Schlenger, a founder and managing partner of Weaver Schlenger LLP has expertise in helping companies lawfully employ the best talent worldwide. With extensive experience in business immigration, removal defense, family immigration, naturalization and asylum, Ms. Schlenger is adept in all facets of immigration law. Her broad background allows her to expertly and comprehensively advise clients on the full range of immigration options and risks. Ms. Schlenger has devised and implemented customized corporate immigration policies to improve the management of immigration matters, conducted immigration trainings for human resources professionals, and performed internal employment documentation audits. Through her extensive professional contacts, she is able to anticipate immigration trends and advise clients proactively. Ms. Schlenger found her calling in the immigration field after several years on Wall Street and a brief stint in San Francisco as a tax lawyer. She mistakenly thought that her interest in languages (French, Mandarin, Ancient Greek, Latin) and things international (food, travel, music, literature) would be satisfied through an international tax practice. Instead, she learned from a pro bono asylum assignment that helping foreign nationals secure immigration status and pursue their dreams in the U.S. was her true passion. She employs a quick sense of humor to combat the sometimes-absurd immigration bureaucracy.
