About Me

The Law Office of Veronica B. Guinto is a solo practice focusing on immigration and nationality law.

No two stories are the same. Each person’s immigration needs are unique, and each person’s immigration history and background are different. At the Law Office of Veronica B. Guinto, we pride ourselves in providing a level of service as well as a legal approach that is compassionate, solution-oriented, and creative to reach your immigration goals. Mrs. Guinto tailors her services to you. She provides services to families, individuals, and businesses and counsels her clients on what immigration options are available to them.

U.S. immigration laws and processes are complex and can, oftentimes, be confusing. Mrs. Guinto simplifies the process so that clients know what to expect throughout their case. Mrs. Guinto is knowledgeable and experienced in the following areas: waivers, family-based immigration, adjustment of status, U visas, VAWA, consular processing, removal defense, and H-1b/employment-based visas.

Our office is located in Oakland, California and serves clients throughout California.
