Hiring Amira as my immigrant visa lawyer Los Angeles was the best decision I ever made. She helped me get my visa quicker than anyone else could’ve. She is a truly amazing lawyer and I will be forever grateful for all the work her and her employees did for me.

Robert edwards

I was in search of an immigration lawyer in Los Angeles that would provide deportation defense for my parents. I was not willing to lose my family and be left alone so I called Alami Law. Not only did they help us with the deportation issue, they also began to help us with the resident process. I don’t have words to describe the amount of gratitude I have for Amira. Thank you so much for helping my family stay united. God Bless!

10 years here in the States and as an American citizen my brother was never able to visit me from Egypt. He was never given the visa no matter how hard we tried. Amira guided us through the process and was extremely patient in spite of her busy schedule to follow up on each step of the way. Happy to report my brother is approved and he will visit me for the FIRST time ever!!! I can highly recommend Amira to anyone who needs legal help. She is accurate, professional and extremely knowledgable:) we are forever grateful!

We had a consultation with Mrs. Alami in mid 2014. Although she was nice, she gave us no hope and said we would only be able to find relief of there was a change in immigration law. For three months we were anguished and felt hopeless. We then decided to do the process on our own. Now, less than two years later, my husband is a Legal U.S. Permanent Resident. Had we taken the advise given to us by Mrs. Alami, we’d still be living in the shadows feeling hopeless.
