Biography

Kevin Lashus is a Principal of the Austin, Texas, office of Jackson Lewis P.C. His practice is focused on corporate employment verification compliance and inbound business immigration.

Mr. Lashus has experience in providing uniquely tailored advice to assist clients in developing comprehensive employment authorization and immigration-related compliance systems-including full-scale or localized IMAGE and E-Verify implementation protocols.
