Jason Finch



Jason began his law practice in Denison, Iowa in 2000, where he was initially introduced to the issues relating to immigration law. He is fluent in Spanish (reading, writing, and speaking) which he learned while serving as a missionary in Spain.  Jason began his practice in Denison primarily handling agricultural, civil, and criminal matters.

Jason obtained his Master of Law degree prior to beginning his practice.  Through this education, he was exposed to the vastness of federal administrative law.  Much of immigration law is based on federal administrative law.  So when he began to study immigration law in earnest, he was able to effectively and efficiently identify critical areas of immigration law.  In addition, Jason believed it was important to learn from others.  He attended as many seminars and classes as were available.  He read the statutes, code of federal regulations, and many other books relating to immigration law.  He interviewed immigration practitioners, Department of Homeland Security attorneys, U.S. Citizenship and Immigration officers, and immigration judges in an effort to learn all he could about immigration law.

Jason has been an adjunct professor of immigration law at Metro Community College's paralegal program.  He has been a speaker for immigration issues at Continuing Legal Education seminars.

Jason is also the co-owner of Nebraska’s only U.S.-CIS approved Regional Center.  He represented NuNebraska Regional Center, before U.S.-CIS, from its creation to the present.
