In this podcast episode, the SIWIKE Stuff I Wish I Knew Earlier Podcast welcomes a new guest host, Josh Schachnow, an immigration lawyer and founder of Visto.ai. Josh shares his journey into law and how he fell into immigration law by chance but found it fascinating. He also talks about his experience starting his own firm and teaming up with techies to create Visto, a tech company that helps with immigration. The conversation also touches on law school experiences and expectations, fitting in as a "non-traditional" lawyer, and the growth of the immigration law field in Canada.
