Steve Maggi Esq

Steve Maggi was born in Bariloche, Argentina, and raised in New York City. A graduate of Stuyvesant High School and the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, Mr. Maggi received his Juris Doctor degree from Georgetown University Law Center in 2001 and subsequently worked at law firms in Miami, Florida, where he gained experience in corporate, finance, real estate and immigration law. However, his passion for immigration law was born in the summer of 1999, while still a student at Georgetown, when he worked at Ayuda, Inc., an immigration clinic in Washington, D.C. Four weeks into his first legal job, Mr. Maggi presented and won a political asylum case for two citizens from Togo. The following summer, as a summer associate at a law firm in Miami, Mr. Maggi gained ample experience in business immigration.

In 2004, Mr. Maggi moved to Buenos Aires, Argentina, and started SMA, with a specialized focus on business and family visas, and preparation of petitions processed at the U.S. consulate, including investor visas, tourist and business visas. At the consular level Mr. Maggi assisted many clients in removing inadmissibility due to criminal records as well as immigration infractions in the U.S. through a legal instrument called a waiver, enabling them to legally enter the U.S. again. Some of these waivers included extreme hardship waivers which enabled U.S. citizens to be reunited with loved ones who had been deported from the U.S.

In 2011, Mr. Maggi moved permanently to New York City to expand SMA’s reach to matters in immigration court, including removal and deportation matters and legal remedies including cancellation of removal and asylum. He is also working with franchises and businesses in order to create investment opportunities to foreign nationals obtain investor visas and green cards, and assisting foreign companies who want to expand their businesses into the U.S. and send management personnel to undertake those expansions. As a former immigrant and a naturalized U.S. citizen, Mr. Maggi understands the legal immigration processes on both a personal and professional level.
