Correction “An Up-Close View of Immigration,” published in the fall 2013 issue of Willamette Lawyer, incorrectly identified an employer for Teuta Norman JD‘98. Norman worked for HRCentral Corporation, a human resources outsourcing firm, from 1998-2001. She started practicing immigration law with the firm now known as Hecht & Norman, LLP in 2001, becoming an owner in 2004. We regret the error.
