Meet your lawyer: Giacomo Jacques BEHAR 



With almost 20 years of practicing experience, I dedicate my practice exclusively to U.S. Immigration and Nationality law.  Immigration Law is Federal & therefore uniform throughout the U.S.  A world traveled multilingual polyglot, I am FLUENT in seven (7) languages: Spanish, French, Italian, Turkish, Hebrew, German and of course, English.  For the last almost 20 years I take pride in having assisted clients in most of these languages, on an almost daily basis.  I am myself an immigrant who arrived in San Diego  31 years ago from Switzerland to get my Masters in Business Administration (MBA) degree.
