Great service!
I am not one to write reviews constantly but i really have to give it to this immigration law firm, for their professionalism to their great customer service. I am very happy that her associate attorney Paola , helped us understand how difficult our case was and weighed out our options. We are definately going to recommend this law firm as they really are what they say they are, and that is HONEST. I have consulted with various of attorneys and they always want to go the easy way of only obtaining a work permit. Thank you Alami Law staff and Amira.

Changed my life.
Where do I begin... Plain and simple, Amira changed my life and my family's life for the better. My cousins were here and undocumented, and on top of that had removal status. Every lawyer we went to had told us there was no relief for them, until we went to see Amira. She clearly explained the opportunity at hand and gave us hope. Not only did she give us hope, she turned that hope into a reality! The whole process was extremely painless, everything was very smooth working with Amira and her staff, we were never once uneasy or felt unsure of what was going to happen. The whole process was painless and Amira instilled great confidence in our case. In the end my cousins were given relief and words cannot explain how grateful my family and I are to Amira and her work!

My case was a little difficult. After recourse to a couple of lawyers, who NEVER gave me any hope to fix my situation. I saw on TV the attorney Amira Al -Alami, and I decided to contact her. From the first moment I entered, her assistant Rosario was very kind and attentive to me, which gave me confidence. When I go to the lawyer's office and comment on my case, I was in shock when she said: yes, I can help you and that gave me joy to give good news. I do not know wheter to mourn or cry of emotion. I trusted them with my eyes closed and I put all my faith, and more because they are a good team. They make you feel as if they lived your situation. I greatly appreciate and especially to God, for having placed them in my path. Everything went so fast, giving that believed not. I congratulate them for being so human, kind, dedication, for their effort, and love they put into their work. May they always keep it up! . I am particularly grateful with the Lawyer Lorena Espinoza, for her great representation, because even though she did not start my case, was the one who represented me on my inmigration appointment, and made me feel great and confidence.It is certainly a great warrior! Always kept me informed of every step my case took. I think that's what counts, there is always the attorney - client communication, like Rosario always attentive to everything, so helpful. You feel that you always knew them. Definely highly recommend., because for me, they are a great team and deserve the tittle of : "ANGELS OF JUSTICE" . I'll carry in my heart! Thanks a lot for your great help! " LA VERDAD TE HARA LIBRE" Sincerely Alicia Silva.

K1 Visa & Permanent Resident Card
My husband and I started looking for an immigration lawyer after we got engaged in the fall of 2011. I am a Canadian citizen and my now husband is an American citizen. The entire immigration process was very foreign to us and we had no idea where to start. Amira came highly recommended from an attorney who is also a close family friend of my husband. From the first consultation, we knew we were in great hands. Amira is a true professional and is exceptionally knowledgeable about the immigration process. She gave us several options regarding different visas and explained each and every one of them in detail. We decided to apply for a K1 visa, as we wanted to get married in the United States. Amira filed our application in February of 2012 and by October, I had my K1 visa. By March, I received my work permit and by April I had my green card in hand!! Amira is confident, supportive and extremely friendly. She and her law team not only answered all of our emails and phone calls swiftly but they also arranged in person meetings to address all of our questions and concerns whenever we needed reassurance along the way. Amira’s guidance was truly valued during this confusing and at times intimidating process. For anyone looking for an immigration attorney we would highly recommend Amira and her team. She is kind, supportive, confident and overall an exceptional immigration lawyer.

Hi Amira . I'm Edison. I just want to thank you for such. A good job that you done on my case . It was not an easy one because both of my parents have passed away . And even I came as a child legally thru my us citizen mother ice was still giving me a hard time on prooving my case . But every time ice was reQuiring more paper work hard to find . Don't know what you did delegating or you just got the experience and know the legal process to take . I had contact other attorneys but it really didnt showed me the experience that I was looking for . I just took my case to Amira She answered me a few question regarding my case and very comfortable with the work that she was doing .

Excellent Attorney
Dear Amira: Words simply cannot describe the joy and peace you have brought to our lives. You made this convoluted and long battle seem like a simple and achievable task. There is no doubt that your knowledge of the law, research (from day one), understanding of the case, organization, and timeliness were instrumental in getting the case approved. Knowing that you were representing us gave us hope, confidence, and piece of mind. We knew that engaging your services was the right choice when we met with you the first time; however, our decision was confirmed during the interview when the officer said: "you have chosen a very smart, efficient, and determined lawyer..."

Best Immigration Attorney in California
Amira Al-Alami has represented me for 4 years. My experience has been a very positive and successful one. With all my complications in my case, Amira & her team were capable to provide me with various options and help me become educated with the legal system. She effectively communicated with me every step of the way and was very accessible when I needed her. I would highly recommend her especially with more complex immigration cases. I do feel that she is a very honest attorney and will work hard to represent her clients.
