About Me

L. M. Okoh-Brown has over ten (10) years immigration law experience handling difficult cases and cases turned down by other attorneys as hopeless.  With her superior educational background and fighting spirit she has won many cases on behalf of her clients. 

She is fearless in her representation of her clients and will not stop fighting until the client says so.  She came to this country many years ago without any money on a student visa, worked her way through school, obtained her green card and then became a U.S. Citizen.  So she understands what it is to come to this country to make a better life for your family. She has walked in your shoes.

Her background and experience in various business organizations also add to her unique skills as an attorney in helping her to understand complex business structures and help clients in business and investment immigration cases.  She is hardworking, driven and dedicated.  In addition to a law degree from Georgetown University in Washington, D.C.,  Attorney Okoh has a Bachelors of Science Degree in Accounting from the University of West Alabama (Magna Cum Laude); a Masters of Business Administration - concentration in Health Care Administration from Howard University in Washington, D.C. (Magna Cum Laude) and a Master of Laws Degree in Taxation from Georgetown University.

She earned all of her degrees while raising a family and working part-time.  Her willingness to fight for her clients and commitment to anything she pursues is the thing that clients appreciate from her most.

  • Michael James Edwards II

    It is an honor to endorse Lisa. I worked with Lisa on a criminal defense case wherein my client faced deportation issues if he had accepted a plea. Lisa armed me with the specialized immigration knowledge I needed to provide my client with the tools he needed to make a fully informed decision. We went forward, fought the case and won. Lisa is THE attorney to talk to if you have an immigration issue at hand.
