Born in the former Soviet Union in what is now Kazakhstan, a nation in Central Asia that gained its independence in 1991, Aliya knew from an early age what she wanted to do and her passion led her to the legal profession. She attended Eurasian National University in Astana, the capital and business center of Kazakhstan, where she received a Law Degree in International Law. Upon graduation, Aliya decided to further her education in the United States. Through a series of highly competitive tests, she became a candidate and eventual recipient of the prestigious Bolashak International Scholarship, which is awarded only to the best students in Kazakhstan. This afforded Aliya the opportunity to earn her Masters of Law degree (L.L.M.) from University of California - Davis.
As an immigrant herself, Aliya has firsthand experience with immigration and truly understands the stress and frustration that comes with the process, which can oftentimes be circuitous, confusing and prolonged as the landscape of immigration law constantly changes. Aliya understands these unique challenges and sympathizes with the struggles of immigrants and their families. It is with compassion, courage and commitment that Aliya has dedicated herself to assisting immigrants and non-US citizens as they navigate through the immigration process.
Aliya is fluent in both Russian and Kazakh languages. She is a member of the California State Bar and an active member of the American Immigration Lawyers Association (AILA).
