My name is Angela Thanyachareon.  I am a Sole Practitioner.   My law firm specializes in immigration law.


In 1989, I graduated from Xavier University of Louisiana, New Orleans, Louisiana, Cum Laude with a Bachelors in Political Science (Minor:  English).  In 1993, I graduated from University of Missouri-School of Law, Columbia, Missouri, with a Juris Doctorate.


Since 2009, I have been specializing in immigration law.  I am a member of the American Immigration Lawyers Association; American Bar Association; The Florida Bar; District of Columbia Bar; and Christian Legal Society, DC Metro Chapter.  I volunteer with Christian Legal Aid of DC and Good Samaritan Advocates as an Immigration Law Consultant, Immigration Legal Trainer, and Pro Bono Immigration Referral Attorney.


I served our country in the US Army for 5 years.  I was stationed in SC, AZ, HI, and Ft. Belvoir, VA.  Currently, I am a disabled US veteran.


I love to travel and conduct short term overseas mission trips with my church, Thai Christian Church of DC, Arlington, VA.  I am married to a US Army disabled veteran and who was born in Chainat, Thailand (Wat Sing Province).  I was born and raised in St. Louis, Missouri.  Our family currently lives in the DC metro area.


I look forward to meeting you and your family.  Do not hesitate to contact me for an introduction.

This review is from a person who hired this attorney.
| Hired Attorney
Patient, dedicated and really wants to help.
Angela helped me with a pretty complicated situation. She filed a couple of deferred action for me, filed work authorizations, and stuck through all of it until I filed for my naturalization. with a very rare case of military naturalization, she had to go through extensive research and use of resources to help me through my naturalization. I would recommend her.
