Charles Kuck's Story
Born in New Jersey in the same neighborhood as Frankie Valley and later moving closer to New York City, Chuck grew up with people originating from many different parts of the world. It was living in another country, though, that changed his perspective. After his first year of college at Brigham Young University, Chuck was called to serve a mission in Cusco & Arequipa, Peru for two years. He returned to BYU and graduated with a Bachelor's Degree in Latin American Studies and History. Chuck contemplated joining the CIA, but after much dissuasion from his wife, he went on to receive his J.D. at Arizona State University Law School in 1989. Pursuing his interest in litigation, Chuck took on pro bono cases at the Immigration Court, representing Central Americans applying for asylum. These pro bono cases are how he fell in love with immigration law and working with American immigrants. Chuck's immigration practice blossomed, and after only practicing law for two years, he was recruited by a premier immigration law firm where he honed his skills. In 2003, after practicing in various large law firms for over thirteen years, Chuck opened Kuck Immigration Partners LLC, where he has been able to take on difficult and challenging cases that impact many people's lives.

Chuck has been extremely active with various immigration law organizations over the years. In 1996, he got involved in the American Immigration Lawyers Association and helped create its new Young Lawyer Division, and was later named as its first chair to serve as a member of AILA's Board of Governors. Later, in addition to serving as AILA's Georgia Chapter Chair for two years and holding a position on the Board of Governors, Chuck served on the AILA Executive Committee for seven years, including as AILA's elected National President from 2008 to 2009. In 2000, he was awarded the Benjamin Landey Pro Bono Award by Catholic Social Services. He was also awarded the Joseph F. Minsky Young Lawyer Award for outstanding contributions to the practice of Immigration Law in 1999. Now, Chuck focuses his efforts on ABIL, as its President.

Recently, Chuck was named as one of the 2011 "100 Most Influential Georgians" by Georgia Trend magazine. He is listed in Best Lawyers in America, Chambers USA, America's Leading Lawyers for Business, Chambers Global, The World' Leading Lawyers For Businesses and in Atlanta Magazine as a Georgia "Super Lawyer." Mr. Kuck's active federal litigation practice has resulted in numerous precedent decisions published by the Federal District and Circuit Courts of Appeal. Mr. Kuck has written various articles on a wide range of U.S. immigration law subjects, has testified before Congress on immigration matters and has spoken at various legal, industry, business, and civic organizations on every area of immigration law, including most recently on state efforts to pass immigration related legislation. He is frequently quoted in the press, and has appeared on CBS, Fox News, CNN, MSNBC, CNBC, National Public Radio, as well as numerous radio stations and written publications, including the New York Times, Washington, Post, Los Angeles Times, The New Yorker, The Wall Street Journal, Business Week, The National Journal, The Miami Herald, The Atlanta Journal Constitution.

Chuck continues to pursue his passion for assisting asylees and working with Latinos by serving as a member of the board of directors of the Georgia Asylum Immigration Network (GAIN). Chuck also serves on the Board of Directors of the Georgia Council of International Visitors, and on the Board of Directors of the Georgia Association of Latino Elected Officials. Previously, he served on the board of directors of the Latin American Association in Georgia for seven years. Since 1999, he has taught both the Introductory and Advanced Immigration Law Seminars at the University of Georgia's School of Law as an Adjunct Professor of Law. Chuck can be heard on his weekly podcast (Immigration Hour Podcast) or you can read his insights into immigration at his blog at Musings on Immigration Blog. Chuck is an avid golfer and gardener and spends time with his wife of over 25 years and their four children.
