Review Maria Mejia-Opaciuch

About Me

I have over 20 years practicing in the area of U.S. Immigration and Nationality Law. I have for the past fifteen years represented clients large and small, including Fortune 100 companies, and assisted them with their immigration programs and policies. I have extensive experience working with Human Resources staffing in bringing in Foreign National employees and keeping them in the United States with valid employment authorization. I also counsel individuals in meeting their immigration needs to work and remain in the United States legally. I also have experience advising and helping with Naturalization Applications.  I began my legal career in the U.S. Department of Justice Honors Program as a Trial Attorney with the legacy INS in New York City.
