Firm Overview


Berkeley Immigration Law and Citizenship Attorney

At the Law Offices of S. Ouya Maina, we know what it is like to go through the immigration process.

Most of the people working in our firm are either first- or second-generation Americans or naturalized U.S. citizens. Our understanding of immigration law-and of our clients’ needs-is both professional and personal.

Our California immigration law attorney has experience in a wide range of immigration, naturalization, and citizenship matters, including:

  • Immigrant deportation and removal defense. We help people facing deportation for a variety of reasons including being illegal or out of status.
  • U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) forms. It is of the utmost importance that the information you provide on USCIS forms is truthful. If you are worried that a criminal conviction or something else in your background may stop you from obtaining citizenship, we have the knowledge needed to help.
  • Political asylum. A person seeking asylum must apply within one year of his or her most recent entry into the United States. Absent exceptional circumstances
  • Employment green cards and visas. We help companies and individuals obtain H1B visas, investment visas, treaty trader visas, religious worker visas, and other employment-based visas and green cards
  • Family based immigration, green cards and visas. Sometimes the biggest hurdle to obtaining a visa for a family member is that the person already in the United States is out of status. We know what to do.

We are straightforward. We do not make promises we cannot keep, and we do not charge for services we cannot deliver. We work with U.S. citizens, non U.S. citizens, and legal and illegal immigrants.
