I was born in Havana, Cuba and came to the United States with my family in 1995. As a former Public Defender in Wake County I have experience in defending persons accused of domestic violence, larcenies, drug posession, property crimes, DWI, driving after consuming, assaults, and traffic matters. I also practice Immigration law, focusing on visas, green cards,  DACA, DREAM, removal proceedings and citizenship.  

Yo nací  en la Habana, Cuba, y vine a los Estados Unidos en el 1995 con mi familia. Antiguamente, trabajé como una abogada de oficio en el condado de Wake. Tengo experiencia defendiendo personas acusadas de violencia doméstica, cargos de drogas, robo, crímenes de propiedad, y multas de tráfico. Mi práctica de inmigración incluye casos de ciudadanía, naturalización, visas, residencia y tarjetas de residencia permanente, Acción Diferida para los Llegados en la Infancia (DACA) y Ley de Fomento para el Progreso, el Alivio y la Educación para Menores Extranjeros (DREAM).

Helpful
No one wishes to find themselves in a difficult situation. Atty. Nunez is a trustworthy,helpful, knowledgeable lawyer. She will guide you through the whole process. I was very impressed with her ability to get up to speed and clear my family member's case. You made a difficult time easier and less stressful.

Great responsiveness and professionalism
Ana helped me on a case that started on a Saturday afternoon. I initially tried to contact several law offices as I did not know any lawyer in the triangle area and I was not able to speak to any lawyers because they were all closed and they had answering services with no legal experience. Ana called back and was very supportive, listening to my case and advising me how to proceed as the police wanted to talk to me. She was always very responsive, even on the next day (Sunday) as I had many questions prior to my Monday hearing. I always felt like Ana had my back with my legal matter and I would gladly recommend her and her entire office.
