Ryan Morgan Knight

Ryan Morgan Knight, Immigration AttorneyRyan Morgan Knight is an associate attorney with Haynes Novick Immigration in Washington, DC, focusing his practice on employment-based nonimmigrant and immigrant visas, including PERM cases and EB-5 cases. He works closely with employers and beneficiaries in assisting them to navigate the strict Departments of Labor and Homeland Security requirements regarding immigration. Before joining HNI, Ryan was an associate attorney at Fayad Law where he worked on a broad spectrum of immigration cases, including complex BIA and Fourth Circuit appeals, and business, family, individual, and removal cases. He has worked on L and E visas for new real estate companies, PERM and employment-based immigrant visa petitions for a large IT firm, and a number of H-1B’s for smaller technology companies. He has also represented clients in removal proceedings, and assisted in asylum, marriage, and naturalization cases.

Ryan found his calling for immigration advocacy in law school, where he worked as a student-attorney in the pro bono WVU Immigration Law Clinic. He specialized in asylum claims, winning both defensive and affirmative claims in court, with USCIS and with the Board of Immigration Appeals. He received his Bachelor’s degree from University of Iowa and his J.D. from West Virginia University College of Law. An ardent lover of history, art, culture and literature, Ryan’s enthusiasm for immigration law and policy is well-grounded in his experiences and travels.
