Mr. Amiri’s law practice is 100% dedicated to Immigration and Nationality Law. He has handled thousands of immigration cases ranging from deportation defense, bond hearings, and asylum proceedings to family petitions and employment and business-based immigration applications. Mr. Amiri’s client portfolio consists of nationalities from all over the globe. Mr. Amiri’s immigration practice extends all over the State of Arizona, and he is licensed to appear in federal Immigration Courts across the country, and in U.S. District Court in Arizona.

Mr. Amiri began his legal career in 2011 as an associate attorney at one of the largest volume immigration firms in Arizona. In 2016, he moved to Los Angeles, CA to start a solo practice at a time when immigration was heavily featured in the national zeitgeist. Mr. Amiri embraced this challenge and soon found himself featured in the Los Angeles Times when he and a group of attorneys volunteered at the Los Angeles International Airport on the day when the infamous Travel Ban was announced by the Department of Homeland Security. Mr. Amiri continued his solo practice until he and his family relocated to Arizona in early 2019.

Mr. Amiri earned his Juris Doctor from the Sandra Day O’Connor College of Law at Arizona State University where he focused on civil justice and mediation. Mr. Amiri attended the University of California, San Diego where he earned degrees in World Literature and Political Science/ International Relations from one of the most prestigious programs in the country.

Mr. Amiri’s career representing foreign nationals and their families in immigration matters came together quite naturally- he is the son of an Iranian immigrant who became a naturalized U.S. citizen and then immigrated his own family to the United States during a time of political and social upheaval in his home country. Mr. Amiri has spent his life immersed in different cultures, he learned Spanish on mission trips with his church to Baja California, Mexico, and refined his language skills while studying abroad at the Universidad de Sevilla, in Seville, Spain.

When he is not litigating a case in the courtroom or accompanying a client to U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services for an interview, Mr. Amiri enjoys spending quality time with his wife and toddler, being outdoors, listening to music, and cooking.

A professional and credible immigration laywer
Darius Amari is recommended by our dear neighbor, who's also an attorney, but in a different field. He's credible, honest, and straight to the point. I've learned a lot from Darius and was impressed by his knowledge. The location of his office is in a nice neighborhood in Scottsdale and Darius's team has a group of professionals helping people out. Kudos to you Darius and many thanks!

Great experience !
Darius and Brandon helped me with the green card process after marrying my husband. They were always warm, welcoming and very helpful. They took time to answer all of our questions and to accommodate for our situation. My husband is in the military so we had a lot of changes of address during the process as well as very tight deadlines, but they remained super helpful through it all. The process was very smooth and it was so worth it for us to spend the money and get professional help, instead of having to deal with all the headaches and stress on our own. The US immigration system is very difficult to navigate if you're not familiar with it and having Darius and Brandon's help was extremely reassuring and valuable for us. They remained very communicative throughout the entire experience, which was great, even after we moved to a different state. The only thing that I would mention is that the communication would occasionally be delayed or not be as smooth as it usually was if they were experiencing unusually busy weeks at the office, but I feel like that should be expected, after all they are still human and have lives of their own. Any minor issue was still easily fixed after a phone call or a couple of emails, so I cannot complain. All in all, they were great and we are super thankful!

Great advice
Darius is an exceptional lawyer and we are so glad that he helped us with our case. We were stuck in Australia because of the covid border closures and my green card had expired with my renewal application being pending for over two years. We spoke to several immigration lawyers in the US who gave us some pretty horrendous advice. Darius helped us strategize and came up with a great solution. I was able to come back to the US without any issues at all. Had I gone with the advice from any of the other firms, I would probably still be stuck in Australia.

Real American
This man has helped an interpreter escape Afghanistan. I have no personal experiences with him, but if he can get someone out of Afghanistan, just imagine what he can do for you. You can check out his story on Fox 10 news.

Above and Beyond!
Darius and his team went above and beyond to assist with my greencard application. My current visa situation and issues with COVID made my situation a little more complicated that others but Darius was proactive with approach and process which helped avoid a lot of additional dollars, paperwork and time. Can't speak highly enough...THANK YOU!

Highly recommend
Thanks to Darius and his team I went from being a DACA recipient to a permanent resident. Him and his team did a great job keeping my wife and I inform on every step of the adjustment of status process, from what documents where needed all the way to prepping for the interview with an immigration officer and being present at the interview. It was really comforting to know he was doing everything he could to help me. I highly recommend him and his team. Thank you Darius for helping me to achieve one of the many American dreams!

Excellent attorney
I hired Mr. Amiri last year when I was looking to change my green card status during my divorce. He did the whole process, and in a year, I received my teen years card. Now I'm looking to hire him again to help me with the process for my citizenship. He is very professional and efficient.

Experienced, knowledgeable and helpful
I contacted many lawyers for my case, one of them being Darius. I had the best experience with him. He's extremely knowledgeable and understood the details as I explained and gave me best of the advice. He helped me a lot when the other lawyers were not even ready to listen to the case over the phone. I really can't thank him enough.

Great experience! Help with immigration papers for family.
Darius was a pleasure to work with. I had to get visas for multiple family members overseas and he was very knowledgable in the steps we had to take to make that happen. With his expertise we were able to expedite the process it would normally take. He was always there to answer any questions I had and made great recommendations always. I would highly recommend him.

Professional, kind, and awesome guy
I never (thankfully) ended up having to hire Darius, but I consulted him over some legal issues related to my job, and he made sure to get a very thorough understanding of the situation, which I really appreciated. He took time to ask questions and get a sense of the big picture before offering advice, and was very knowledgeable in terms of the next steps I should take. Darius is also just a nice guy, easy to talk to, and I would highly recommend him to anyone.
