Mark J Curley

About me

I grew up in Sioux Falls, South Dakota.  Following graduation from O'Gorman High School, I chose to continue my education at Creighton University in Omaha, Nebraska.  At Creighton, I received an outstanding liberal arts education in the Jesuit tradition.  Serving as a Resident Advisor during my last two years at Creighton helped me to develop my customer service skills.  In May 1990, I graduated cum laude with my B.A. in Organizational Communication with a minor in Business Administration. 


I knew that I wanted to be a lawyer since a young age so I continued my education at the Creighton School of Law.  Working my way through college and law school gave me an appreciation for hard work and dedication.  Clerking for a local law firm during my last year of law school opened my eyes to the inner workings of a law firm and the real world view of lawyering. 


Following graduation from law school in the top third of my class, I successfully passed the Nebraska bar exam and accepted a position with Brown & Brown, PC.  The five years that I worked at B&B gave me a breadth of experience in several areas of law, including immigration.  Handling employment-based cases for our corporate clients sparked an interest in learning more about this area.  So, when I opened my own law practice in February 1999, I decided to dedicate my time to handling immigration cases only.  The U.S. immigration laws are so complex that I knew that I would need to focus only immigraiton if I wanted to be successful. 


Our focus on immigration cases only helps us to ensure quality customer service and personal attention to our clients.
