Alicia Marie Heflin

About me

I am an Arizona native, raised in southeastern Arizona where immigration issues have been a hot topic for many years. While working as a paralegal in in various legal areas, including criminal and family law, I took an interest in immigration law. In 2006, while attending law school, I started working in a immigration firm and I quickly realized that I wanted to use my legal skills and knowledge to help individuals navigate our complicated immigration system and be an advocate for those who want to call our great nation “home.”

I have been assisting individuals in the Phoenix area with their immigration applications, petitions, cases, and appeals since 2006.
