John Rafferty

Associate // Dallas


“I'm originally from Ireland and emigrated to the U.S. to go to college. I then pursued a career, got my green card, and ultimately became an American Citizen. I appreciate how challenging the immigration landscape can be, so I love being able to help others blaze their own immigration journey.”

John is an Associate in the Dallas office of BAL where he works on U.S. nonimmigrant and immigrant visa matters with a focus on H-1B cases, I-140 employment-based immigrant visa petitions and green card applications.

Prior to joining BAL, John worked at a nationwide bankruptcy firm, representing and guiding creditors through the many nuances of creditors’ rights and bankruptcy law. His client profile consisted of large multinational corporations, financial institutions, and mortgage servicers.

John is a member of the American Immigration Lawyers Association. He rarely misses a Liverpool football game, and loves going to the movies with his wife and 2 daughters.
