Christopher Stender, an immigration attorney with Federal Immigration Counselors in Phoenix, Arizona since 2011, received degrees from the State University of New York at Buffalo and Syracuse University Law School. In addition, attorney Christopher Stender spent time at the University of Wuerzburg in Germany.

The University of Wuerzburg is located in the city of Wurzburg, which was founded before the time of Christ. Located on the banks of the Main River, Wurzburg is known as a scenic, peaceful city, ideal for walking. Tourists enjoy visiting Old Town, several churches, the Marienberg Fortress, and the Wurzburg Residenz. Though 90 percent of the city was destroyed in an air raid during World War II, over the last 50 years the city has undergone an impressive renovation, restoring much of the city to its former glory.

The Residenz, one of the most important Baroque palaces in Europe, was built for the Prince-Bishops of Franconia starting in 1720. Construction lasted for 24 years, ensuring that the design of most of the palace stayed true to its Baroque beginnings. One of the most important architectural treasures in Germany, the Residenz features beautiful decoration and impressive gardens. Most of the interior artwork and furnishings are original to the palace because they were taken off site during the war. The Residenz was included on the UNESCO World Heritage List in 1981.
