I believe that family is at the core of our communities. In that respect my practice of family law emphasizes respect for the family, protection for children and fair & balanced treatment of individuals. Without sacrificing zealous client advocacy I strive to find solutions that benefit clients from the start with limited expense.
We are a community of immigrants and are stronger because of it. I believe our immigration laws should work for us not against us and my office endeavors to find ways to make immigration laws most effective for our clients.
Specialties: Dissolutions, OFPs, Ante-Nuptial Agreements, Family & Employment-based Immigration, Removal Proceedings.

I endorse this lawyer. When I began the practice of immigration law, some colleagues recommended I meet Obi, because Obi is an expert in immigration law and enjoys helping new attorneys. Obi has served as a mentor to me since. I have found Obi Chuckwu to be an incredibly knowledgeable, experienced, and thoughtful attorney. If I needed an attorney, I would not hesitate to hire Obi Chukwu.
