Miriam Korngold founded Korngold Law and served as its Managing Attorney until August of 2019, when she joined Kids in Need of Defense (KIND) as a Pro Bono Coordinating Attorney. As a result of this transition, Korngold Law is no longer accepting new clients, but please contact Miriam directly if you need to discuss a matter that you previously worked on with her.
Miriam focuses her practice exclusively on immigration law matters. She comes from a family of immigrants, and she admires people who chart their own course. Her immigration law experience includes asylum, humanitarian relief, family-based immigration, and employment-based immigration.
When not practicing law, Miriam can be found on a bike or pair of skis, enjoying topographical features in and near Seattle, and delighting in her thermos for keeping her coffee piping hot after hours in the snow.
