Biography

Attorney Christopher M. Casazza is a co-founder of Palladino, Isbell & Casazza LLC.

Prior to co-founding Palladino, Isbell & Casazza LLC, he was a partner at a prominent Center City Philadelphia Immigration Law Firm from 2019-2020, and he was employed as a senior attorney at a boutique immigration firm in suburban Philadelphia, PA where he worked from 2009-2019.

A persuasive and successful immigration lawyer, Christopher (“Chris”) is well respected by colleagues, clients, and courts alike. Chris has dedicated his legal career to all aspects of immigration law including removal (deportation) defense, appeals, federal litigation, the immigration consequences of criminal convictions, asylum/refugee law, U-Visas, family-based petitions/waivers, and employment-based immigration.

Chris’s success as an immigration attorney is due to the fact that he enjoys his work and believes in what he fights for. He is energized by difficult cases and strives to find favorable solutions to complex matters. As a litigator, Chris has been extremely successful defending individuals and families from removal (deportation), on appeal before the Board of Immigration Appeals (BIA), and in Federal District and Circuit Court, including Oral Argument before the United States Court of Appeals for the Third Circuit.

Chris’s passion and dedication for immigration law has been recognized by both the media and his clients. In 2017, Chris was honored as one of the “16 young minds shaping Philly’s legal landscape” by Billy Penn news. Chris has been featured as an immigration expert by multiple news outlets, including the New York Times, NPR, Telemundo, VICE News (Showtime), the Immigration Nerds Podcast, BuzzFeed News, the Philadelphia Inquirer, WHYY, The Philadelphia Tribune, Catholic Philly, and the Philadelphia Business Journal. As a client testimonial puts it, “Chris is a great guy full of passion and absolute dedication to his job.”
