Raymond G. Lahoud, a Member of law firm Norris McLaughlin, P.A., and Chair of its Immigration Law Practice, has been recognized in JD Supra’s “2018 Readers’ Choice Awards” as the number one top author in the immigration category. Over 1,000 authors covered the topic.
“Timely, current information and choosing topics that will impact and resonate with your audience is key. It needs to be information your readers will act upon, otherwise it is just noise,” said Lahoud. Most of the top-read articles in the category discussed USCIS, ICE, immigration procedures, immigration reform, visas, H-1B, foreign nationals, the travel ban, refugees, and the Trump Administration.
The “2018 Readers’ Choice Awards” recognizes more than 240 thought leaders for achieving the highest visibility and engagement in their particular expertise during 2017. It recognizes 10 authors and one firm in 26 of the most popular categories, as well as one author in each of 8 recently-developing topics.
