AILA Elects New Officers; William A. Stock Installed as President of 14,500 Member Association


The American Immigration Lawyers Association (AILA) has elected new officers to its Executive Committee for the 2016-2017 term. The election results were announced at the official membership meeting during AILA’s Annual Conference held in Las Vegas, Nevada from June 22-25, 2016.

Klasko Immigration Law Partners is proud to announce founding partner William A. Stock (Bill) was installed as AILA’s 70th President. The American Immigration Lawyers Association is the largest national association of immigration lawyers with over 14,500 members established to promote justice, advocate for fair and reasonable immigration law and policy, advance the quality of immigration and nationality law and practice, and enhance the professional development of its members.

Mr. Stock handles all aspects of immigration law, emphasizing employment based immigration for companies, health care systems and universities as well as individual investors, researchers and physicians. He also handles, complex family-based, citizenship and naturalization matters, and defends clients in removal proceedings and DOL enforcement proceedings. When necessary, he litigates against the government in the federal courts to obtain immigration benefits unlawfully withheld by the agencies.

He most recently served as AILA President-Elect and previously as First Vice President and as an elected Director for the AILA Board of Governors, as well as the Business Committee Chair, and the Distance Learning Committee Chair. He has spoken at numerous immigration conferences and written extensively, including being a Senior Editor of AILA’s annual Immigration & Nationality Law Handbook.

A summa cum laude graduate of the University of St. Thomas in St. Paul, MN, Mr. Stock received his law degree from the University of Minnesota. In 2000, he received AILA’s Joseph Minsky Award for outstanding accomplishments in immigration law. In addition to his practice, he has also been an Adjunct Professor at Villanova University School of Law.

Please join us in congratulating Bill on his election as AILA’s President.
