Katerina Grinko Comments on President Joe Biden’s Executive Orders to Undo Previous Administration’s Immigration Policies

Katerina Grinko

RIVERHEAD, NEW YORK — Katerina Grinko, Attorney, Twomey Latham, Shea, Kelley, Dubin & Quartararo, LLP, says President Joe Biden’s plan to reverse the previous administration’s immigration policy will remove undue burdens placed on foreign nationals associated with obtaining green cards and becoming U.S. citizens.

On February 2, President Biden signed six executive orders in an effort to reform the nation’s immigration system. This included reversing former President Trump’s policies regarding asylum seekers, reuniting migrant children with their families by undoing the 2018 “zero tolerance” policy and creating a family reunification task force to be headed up by Alejandro Mayorkas, who was confirmed as the Secretary for Homeland Security the same day.

President Biden is also working towards scrapping the Migrant Protection Protocols, also known as the “Remain in Mexico” policy, which kept asylum seekers at the Mexican border while waiting for their cases to be heard at U.S. Immigration Court. He is also looking to get rid of the Trump administration’s “public charge rule,” which made it difficult for undocumented immigrants to obtain green cards if they were receiving government assistance.

While Ms. Grinko was glad to see the Biden administration take swift action to undo the barriers to citizenship, she says more needs to be done. “The biggest hope lies in opening a path to legalization for those noncitizens who live in the U.S. for many years, pay taxes and have no criminal history, such as Dreamers, those under Temporary Protection Status and immigrant farmworkers,” she says. “There is also a strong need to reduce the current substantial visa backlogs and delays. With immigration courts resuming their caseloads, and more assistance for asylum seekers and other vulnerable populations, there is certainly very much to be excited about.”

Ms. Grinko has a general practice with a focus on immigration, real estate, landlord-tenant, zoning and general business matters. She is a Member of the Suffolk County Bar and American Immigration Lawyers Associations. She represents children picked up at the border on a pro bono basis through her work with the KIND (Kids in Need of Defense) organization.

Mr. Handwerker concentrates his practice in corporate law, emerging growth companies, mergers and acquisitions (“M&A”) and private equity.

Mr. Handwerker has strong roots on the East End. Beginning at fourteen years old, he spent three summers working as a Beach Boy at the Amagansett Beach Association. After turning sixteen and being eligible to take the ocean lifeguard test, Mr. Handwerker spent the following six summers as an ocean lifeguard in East Hampton, Amagansett and Montauk. “I fell in love with the ocean from my first summers out on the East End as a child,” he said, “so it was only natural for me to take a job that put me on the beach for eight hours a day, six days a week during the summers.”

Between Mr. Handwerker’s undergraduate and legal degrees, he spent two years working as a bartender and manager at the Living Room Restaurant in East Hampton, which is where he began studying wine, one of his deepest passions.

Prior to joining the Firm, Mr. Handwerker was an Associate with Goodwin Procter LLP in Manhattan. He was a member of the firm’s Business Law department and its Private Equity and Debt Finance groups.

Twomey, Latham, Shea, Kelley, Dubin & Quartararo, LLP Welcomes Martha Reichert as Its New Associate

Martha Reichert

RIVERHEAD, NEW YORK — Twomey, Latham, Shea, Kelley, Dubin & Quartararo, LLP (“Twomey Latham” or “The Firm”) has announced that Martha Reichert has joined the Firm as an Associate.

Ms. Reichert concentrates her practice in real estate and land use. She has extensive experience appearing before municipal and regulatory boards throughout eastern Long Island. Prior to joining the Firm, she had her own practice, the Law Office of Martha F. Reichert, in Hampton Bays. She appeared and represented clients before the Town of East Hampton, the Villages of East Hampton, Sagaponack and North Haven, the New York State Department of Environmental Conservation, the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers and the Suffolk County Department of Health Services. Before forming her own practice, she was Assistant Town Attorney for the Town of Southampton.

Ms. Reichert is a member of the New York State and Suffolk County Bar Associations. She is admitted to practice in the state of New York and before all state courts. In addition, she is Vice President of the Montauk Historical Society, a Member of the Hampton Bays Citizens Advisory Committee and a Co-Founder of the Montauk Community Garden.

A resident of Hampton Bays, Ms. Reichert grew up in Montauk, where her family owned a marina. “It should come as no surprise that my first word was ‘fish,’” she said. “Like most people who fall in love with Montauk and the East End, I am drawn to the water and love nothing more than exploring Montauk’s rugged coastline and the many trails running through its woods.”

As a child, she would take rides with her father in his private plane before going to school. She remembered looking below and seeing the East End’s natural beauty. “I believe that gave me a unique perspective on the vast expanses of farmland and forests that existed on the East End at that time and undoubtedly influenced my passions for land use, planning, and land conservation,” she said.

Ms. Reichert earned her Bachelor’s degree from Hunter College, where she graduated summa cum laude, and her Juris Doctor degree from Brooklyn Law School.

“I am very excited to join Twomey Latham,” Ms. Reichert said. “The Firm has an excellent reputation and has expanded its practice throughout Long Island. I look forward to being part of that growth as we provide the best service to our clients.”

“We are proud to welcome Martha to the Firm,” said Stephen Latham, Senior Counsel, Twomey Latham. “The East End real estate market has really taken off this year, creating new opportunities for the Firm.

Jeffrey W. Pagano Comments on Changes to New York State’s Sick Leave Law

RIVERHEAD, NEW YORK — Jeffrey W. Pagano, Partner, Twomey, Latham, Shea, Kelley, Dubin & Quartararo, LLP, says employers in New York State must now comply with the new requirements of the state’s Sick Leave Law that was introduced in New York’s 2021 budget. He also urges companies to seek assistance in developing and implementing a comprehensive paid leave policy in order to avoid litigation.

On September 30, 2020, the New York Sick Leave Law went into effect. Under the law, companies must provide employees one hour of paid or unpaid sick leave for every 30 hours worked by the employee. The new law allows employees to take leave when they or their loved one’s mental or physical health condition requires medical care; they or their loved one has been a victim of domestic violence, sexual assault, stalking or human trafficking; the employee needs to enroll their children in a new school; or to take any actions to ensure the health and safety of themselves, their loved ones and their co-workers.

According to the law, employers with 100 or more employees must provide employees up to 56 hours of paid sick leave a year. Those with five to 99 employees and companies with four or fewer employees and a net income of more than $1 million in the previous tax year must provide up to 40 hours of paid sick leave. Those with four or fewer employees and a net income of $1 million or less in the previous tax year must provide up to 40 hours of unpaid sick leave. Although employers must pay the employee at the regular rate of pay, they can provide additional benefits to the employees as part of their own sick leave policy.

Employees will begin earning sick time on the first day of employment or on September 30, 2020, whichever is later. However, they will not be allowed to use it until January 1, 2021.

Mr. Pagano is a Partner in the firm’s Labor & Employment Group. He routinely defends employers facing class and/or collective action wage-hour claims throughout the U.S., whether arising under federal or state law. He has also been called upon by numerous companies to structure internal and external employment and operating policies and procedures that minimize non-compliance with applicable interstate and intrastate wage-hour statutory schemes.

“I am urging employers to update their sick leave policies as soon as possible,” Mr. Pagano says. “If they need assistance developing a policy and they want to make sure they are in compliance with state law, they should contact a labor and employment law attorney immediately.”

Katerina Grinko Comments on President Trump’s Proclamation to Suspend Entry of Certain Foreign-Born Citizens into the U.S.

RIVERHEAD, NEW YORK — Katerina Grinko, Attorney, Twomey Latham, Shea, Kelley, Dubin & Quartararo, LLP, says the President’s proclamation suspending the entry of certain foreigners into the United States is yet another unfortunate outcome of the 2019 Novel Coronavirus.

Katerina Grinko

On April 22, President Donald J. Trump signed a Proclamation suspending the entry of foreign-born nationals on immigrant visas for 60 days, effective April 23. President Trump said the purpose of the temporary suspension is to ensure that out-of-work Americans regain employment opportunities that were lost during the coronavirus pandemic. He added that the restrictions can be modified or extended if necessary.

“It is no secret that the Trump administration has made it its top priority to keep as many immigrants as possible from entering the U.S.,” Ms. Grinko says. “The ongoing pandemic unfortunately provides room to further expand this political tactic.”

Despite the suspensions, there are some exceptions. Healthcare workers and their immediate family members will be allowed into the country, as well as spouses and minor children of U.S. citizens. The restrictions also do not apply to the following individuals:

  • those with a valid travel permit
  • those with already approved green cards
  • foreign investors
  • those with valid temporary nonimmigrant visas, such as tourist, student or temporary employment visas
  • those seeking asylum, refugee status, withholding of removal or protection under the Convention Against Torture

For those who are currently in the country and are awaiting interviews for asylum, adjustment of status, and naturalizations, as well as biometric appointments or oath ceremonies, these interviews have been cancelled and will be automatically rescheduled by the U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS). The USCIS field offices temporary suspended all in-person services through June 4. Further, all Immigration Court hearings for non-detained cases have been postponed until May 15.

“All applicants will be receiving new notices in the mail,” Ms. Grinko says. “It is important to closely monitor your mail within the next few weeks. If you do not receive a new notice from either USCIS or Immigration Court within the next two to four weeks, you should contact your immigration attorney so that he or she can follow up with the proper institution.”

For more information, call (631) 727-2180 or visit www.suffolklaw.com.
