  • Andrew J Driggs

    Husna is a very talented immigration lawyer in Las Vegas. She always does a great job for her clients and is genuinely concerned about their welfare. I have seen her perform well in both the Immigration Court and also before the United States Citizenship and Immigration Services. She really knows the law and really looks out for the best for her clients. She is also the only immigration lawyer I know in Las Vegas who is also an expert in Canadian Immigration Law.
