Christopher Morales specializes in Immigration law and represents clients before the Executive Office of Immigration Review, the Board of Immigration Appeals and the United States Citizenship and Immigration Services. He assists clients with all family-based petitions, as well as U-Visas, Asylum claims and defense against deportation. Additionally, Chris has successfully practiced in the areas of family law and personal injury. Chris’ attention to detail and ability to tell a client’s story has enabled him to get favorable results both in court and through mediation, including a $100,000 settlement for a member of the armed forces who was injured in a motorcycle accident. 


Chris finds satisfaction not only in getting favorable results for his clients, but in explaining the legal process to them and keeping clients "in the loop" so they always feel they are part of the process and are making informed decisions. 


Having received a Bachelor of Science degree in Communications from Brigham Young University-Idaho, Chris went on to receive his Juris Doctorate from Hamline University School of Law in St. Paul, Minnesota. There, he served as president of the Latino Law Student Association and was a semi-finalist in the Hispanic National Bar Association's national moot court competition. While in law school, Chris also prosecuted misdemeanor cases for the Hennepin County Attorney's Office in the state of Minnesota. Prior to law school, Chris worked as a journalist for the Deseret News. 


Chris grew up in Glendale, California and is fluent in Spanish.

Excelente y Honesto con sus clientes
Gracias a Christopher Morales y su gran dedicacion con mi caso pude obtener mi residencia atraves de la visa VAWA. mi caso era un poco complicado ya que fui victima de violencia domestica pero especiamente abuso emocional que es mucho mas dificil de comprobar ante las leyes, pero gracias a la eficacia, disciplina, dedicacion y veracidad y conocimiento que el tiene con respecto a las leyes de inmigracion pude obtener la visa y por medio de ella recibir mi residencia y estoy muy complacida con Dios y por darme la oportunidad de poder haber decidido trasmitar mi caso con Christopher porque a pesar que llevo mi caso estando en otro estado del pais del que yo me encontraba todo fue un exito gracias a su honestidad y transparecia con mi caso, siempre recomiendo a mis amigos o conocidos que tienen problemas legales contactarle porque se que el servicio que recibiran sera el mas transparente y lleno dedicacion posible y sobre todo a un costo muy accesible al alcance de los clientes. Gracias Christopher Morales por ayudarme a tener una mejor vida aqui en este pais que ahora es mi segundo hogar.

Christopher helped us to get our Visa U . He stood with us and explained everything in detail. He always explained and answered our questions. When we had to go to immigration he went along with us and translated when we needed it. I strongly recommend him!

He helped me get my daughter back
I feel I received excellent work from Chris and would retain him again. I feel that he put his all into my case. He came in two years after I had started my divorce and he had a lot of pieces to put together, but I think he did a fantastic job!! I had been strong-armed by the other attorney into temporarily giving up custody of my daughter and Chris came in and was able to help me get my daughter back permanently. I have my daughter and my divorce.
