Review Maricela Amezola

About Me

Maricela Amezola is a native Californian.  She was born in Santa Ana, California and was raised by migrant working parents.  She is fluent in Spanish.  She obtained her law degree from Michigan State University College of Law where she graduated Cum Laude.


She relocated to California where she sat and passed the California Bar.  Maricela opened her firm on January 2010.   She has represented various types of clients from celebrities to indigent people.


She prides her practice in the representation of pro bono clients which consists of 10% of her practice.  Currently, Maricela devotes her practice to Family and Immigration Law and represents clients in all aspects of divorce, child custody, visitation, support, division of property, to name a few.  Her immigration practice is focused in deportation defense, family immigration visas and asylum cases.  She travels all throughout California representing clients in various immigration courts.


Her goal is simple, to help all people, promptly, with care and exceptional competence.  She prides herself in helping individuals when they are most vulnerable and guiding them through the process from beginning to end. In her spare time, she speaks at various colleges and Universities to non-traditional students, high school students at risk and anyone else interested in the law. She is a mentor and role model to many.


Maricela is a passionate advocate for the marginalized and voice-less.  Maricela lives in San Diego with her husband and her two dogs.  When she is not advocating for clients, she likes to take her dogs for long walks.
