EB-5 Immigrant Investor Fraud Suit

The EB-5 Program provides a vehicle through which foreign investors can invest in certain types of qualified United States companies, earn a return on their investment, and ultimately obtain their permanent residency (green cards). In certain instances, however, investors are victims of fraudulent schemes and must resort to filing suit to recover their investment and protect their immigration status. Mr. Villasante is one of a handful of lawyers that litigated the matter against Raymond James Financial entities resulting in a 150 million dollar settlement for the class plaintiffs.
