Kate McCarroll practices in the area of immigration and nationality law and leads the firm's Immigration and Nationality law group. She has extensive experience in employment-related immigration law, including inbound and outbound immigration; I-9 and immigration-related compliance training; and, assisting corporations with Department of Labor/Department of Homeland Security audits.  Kate has also handled immigration matters involving criminal and inadmissibility issues; family-based immigration; and asylum proceedings.

Kate is an Adjunct Professor at the University of Detroit Mercy. In 2012, she was named to the Michigan Super Lawyers’ Rising Stars list.
