We defend family’s facing separation under the draconian Adam Walsh Act, and conditional permanent residents who through divorce or separation need an I-751 good faith marriage waiver. Our firm is dedicated to defending the human rights of our most vulnerable immigrants. We aggressively fight for asylum protection and refugee status, permanent residency under the Violence Against Women Act (VAWA), and legal status through victim of crime U visas.

We defend immigrants in San Jose and Santa Clara County and throughout the San Francisco Bay Area, as well as the Counties of Santa Cruz, Monterey, San Benito, Merced, San Joaquin, Sacramento, Fresno, and Stanislaus. Our staff of California immigration lawyers includes former international human rights defenders and immigration and state bar prosecutors. Together, our team of immigration professionals draws on decades of experience successfully representing immigrant clients. Thanks to this inside knowledge, our team knows firsthand how ICE attorneys and DHS agents come after immigrants. We know their tricks. We’ve seen their games. Now we use this insight to help get our clients the results they deserve.
