I focus on individual and family immigration matters, including green cards, citizenship, and asylum, at Alcorn Immigration Law. I’m also an immigrant. I came to the U.S. with my family at the age of 5 from Iraq, where I was born. We settled in Silicon Valley to be close to extended family. As a teenager, I remember family members struggling to represent themselves in legal matters. Since then, I aspired to become a lawyer to advocate for those in need of legal representation.
I have also previously practiced family law and have extensive experience in the field of family law as well.
While earning my bachelor’s degree, I volunteered with JusticeCorps, an AmeriCorps program designed to help family law litigants who are representing themselves, complete legal forms.
During law school, I appeared as student counsel before the United States Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit. I also worked as a paralegal at a boutique law firm in San Jose. Once I was admitted into the California Bar, I worked as an associate attorney there on family-based immigration and family law matters.
Yes hayeren guh khosem. Yo hablo español básico.
When I’m not practicing law, I enjoy dancing, traveling, cooking, baking, playing music, and playing with my dog, Will.
