About Nancy

Practice area

I have represented immigrants from all over the world, and from all sorts of occupations. What I have learned from my many clients is that we are all people together. Our shared humanity transcends many cultural and language differences.

 I work hard as your lawyer to understand you:  to understand your needs, your goals, your hopes and your dreams.  By working hard to understand who you are, I am a better lawyer in meeting your immigration law needs.  

U.S. immigration law is a complex area of law. Laws and policies and procedures constantly change. You need a lawyer who keeps up with the changes, and can help you navigate to the conclusion of your case.  Let me help you do this, as you seek to achieve your U.S. immigration goals.

Excellent and Caring Immigration Lawyer
Nancy is a very caring, knowledgeable and trust-worthy immigration attorney who keeps client’s interest at the center of a case. Her ability to communicate and convey confidence and calmness are what makes her great at helping complicated cases. She helped me and my husband secure green cards and we will forever be grateful for her expertise. Without any hesitation, we would work with her again.

An excellent immigration attorney
I recommend Nancy as an immigration lawyer. I have been the HR manager for a manufacturing company that has employed foreign professional workers, and Nancy has represented our company in the immigration processes related to our workers. She has helped us ensure that our company complies with immigration laws, while achieving our goals of successfully employing foreign professional workers. I wholeheartedly recommend Nancy. She has been careful, thorough, and always willing to explain the technical intricacies of immigration law.

I Highly Recommend
Nancy Robinett has been a great immigration lawyer for me for about eight years. First she helped me get a green card. This was a long and complicated process. It was really scary for me, but Nancy was with me every step, and made sure that everything was done correctly. I felt like without her I wouldn’t have made it through the process, because it was difficult, but she attended to every detail and kept everything going. After I got my green card Nancy then later helped me get my citizenship. Everything went smoothly for citizenship, and I am so happy to be a U.S. citizen. Thanks to Nancy for all of this. I highly recommend her as an immigration lawyer.

Highly recommend
Nancy was recommended to me by someone who previously used her expertise to handle their immigration proceedings. Nancy was thorough professional and spent time making sure I understood all the legal proceedings.

Excellent lawyer
I have worked with Nancy for over 5 years. She’s processed my renewal applications since I first hired her to help me file for DACA. She is fast, efficient and very informative with any questions or concerns I may have about immigration policies.

Outstanding Work!
Ms. Robinnett has handled my immigration proceedings for the past two years. She is as passionate about her work as she is knowledgeable and provides excellent legal guidance to clients as they navigate a complex system. Immigration issues are rarely simple or resolved quickly--Ms. Robinnett has kept me informed and encouraged the entire time. I would highly recommend her services to anyone in need of excellent legal representation.

Juvenile Immigration Case
Nancy has worked with us for nearly 5 years on a juvenile immigration case (our son). She has been terrific throughout: knowledgeable, creative, available, compassionate, honest, reliable. She understands the laws relevant to our situation and how they're interpreted, and is respected by the judges we saw. We recommend her highly and without reservation.
