Grace Rosas Alano

About me

I am an Immigration Attorney and a Certified Specialist in Immigration and Nationality Law (certified by the Board of Legal Specialization of the State Bar of California), which means that I have been recognized for demonstrating a high level of competence in my field.  I particularly love doing marriage-based green cards, fiancee visas, consular processing, removal of conditions on residence, citizenship, U visas, VAWA and political asylum.  I have been practicing immigration law for well over a decade.  I love what I do and enjoy working with people from all over the world.


Besides my main company website, I also have a companion website for marriage and fiancee visas.

  • Carrie Lynn Rosenbaum

    Grace Alano is an exceptional immigration attorney. Aside from having an expansive skill set, extensive experience and knowledge, she has a unique ability to relate to her clients. I have been fortunate enough to have collaborated with Ms. Alano over the course of several years and have witnessed her interactions with clients and seen her excellent work. She is highly ethical in all respects, taking her responsibility to her clients and the profession seriously. Attorneys like Ms. Alano are a gift to clients and to the lawyers, like myself, who get to participate in profession with her.
