Review Richard Tasoff

About Me

I am a partner in Tasoff & Tasoff, one of the oldest "AV" rated (highest Martindale-Hubbell rating) law firms in Los Angeles specializing in immigration law.  I am a Certified Specialist in Immigration & Nationality Law (State Bar of California Board of Legal Specialization) since 1988.  I have expertise in family immigration and in assisting research institutions, technology firms, multinational corporations, and highly-skilled or net-worth individuals obtain temporary working visas and permanent resident status ("green card" status).  I have been honored as a "Super Lawyer" in immigration law for the Southern California region from 2007 to 2015.

I have been very active in the national Celiac Disease Foundation having served on the Board of Directors and as Vice President of the Board for approximately five years.
