Yaniv Lavy began his practice in the United States over ten years ago after earning his law degree from the University of East London. He graduated with honors, in his studies taking classes in areas such as criminal law and public international law. These he put to use as an immigration lawyer in New York, a common place of passage for immigrants entering the US. Because of his extensive experience in business and language skills, speaking Hebrew and English, Attorney Lavy quickly proved to be an asset to the New York law firm.
From there he went on to start his own practice, Lavy Law Associates, P.C., where he served again as an immigration lawyer. He also expanded his clientele by becoming a criminal defense lawyer. In 2003, Attorney Lavy became a member of the New York State Bar Association and the American Immigration Lawyers Association in 2004. In 2006, Lavy merged his firm with the Law Office of Michael Feiner, creating Feiner & Lavy, P.C. Since then, he has served as the principal attorney, upholding the traditions that Feiner started 30 years ago.
