Chief Executive Officer
John Roth is a 1983 graduate of the University of Pennsylvania Law School and the Wharton School of Finance. He has been an immigration attorney and member of the American Immigration Lawyers Association since 1995. In 2010, he passed the rigorous Financial Regulatory Authority (FINRA) Series 7 and Series 63 exams to become a FINRA licensed registered representative of a broker-dealer firm.
John began working as an attorney in the EB-5 field in early 2008. After a couple of his law clients made poor EB-5 project choices by trying to figure things out themselves, John formed EB-5 Analytics in 2010 to locate the safest EB-5 projects for EB-5 investors.
John oversees the entire due diligence process for the firm and also leads a team of independent analysts who evaluate the financial strength of projects.
John no longer accepts cases as an attorney. Instead, he recommends experienced EB-5 attorneys to clients who have not yet hired an attorney.
Our Diligence Makes for Smart Choices
John has recruited an “All-Star” group of top industry specialists in EB-5 project review to evaluate each project under consideration. Make your choice with confidence.

Legal Due Diligence
Firm founder H. Ronald “Ron” Klasko is widely regarded as one of the leading attorneys in the EB-5 field. He is a past President of the American Immigration Lawyers Association, and is a prolific writer and speaker on EB-5 topics. Ron is especially well known as an expert on “legal due diligence” – reviewing project documents to assess the risk of an I-526 or I-829 petition denial – and his firm has developed a proprietary system for methodically identifying legal risks in EB-5 projects. Klasko Immigration Partners provides this service to our firm under contract.
Job Creation Analysis
Vermillion Consulting was co-founded by Kim Atteberry, the former Chief Economist of USCIS. While at the USCIS, Kim had a wide range of responsibilities and was instrumental in refining the EB-5 Program as the Chief of the Investment & Economic Analysis Division at USCIS. Vermilion Consulting advises on matters such as targeted employment area (TEA) analysis, EB-5 compliant structures, project feasibility, and job creation methodology. The services which they provide include EB-5 economic impact studies, Matter of Ho-compliant EB-5 business plans, among other EB-5-related services.
Management Background Checks
Exiger’s Diligence team of more than 130 researchers conducts global comprehensive background due diligence into regional center operators, developers and other key EB-5 stakeholders in order to identify potential bad actors. As part of this process, stated credentials and qualifications are verified, criminal and civil litigation history is disclosed, as are bankruptcies, regulatory issues and negative news and media findings. These red flags are uncovered and reported to EB-5 Analytics under contract to allow us to better select reliable EB-5 projects.
