Providing the results and peace of mind one should expect when hiring an attorney.
Emily Reber-Mariniello has been practicing immigration law exclusively since her admission to the Washington State Bar in late 2010 and the formation of her practice in early 2012. Her firm, ERM Immigration Law, PLLC, is a small boutique firm devoted entirely to immigration law. At ERM, you will get the attention, respect, and service one should expect when hiring an attorney, without the pretension often associated with, well, hiring an attorney! When a person reaches out for assistance on a legal matter, they are often vulnerable, confused or down-right irritated with the system, and immigration is certainly no exception. It is her philosophy that lawyering isn't just about knowing the law, but also knowing the client and providing what that person needs to have a pleasant, calming, and sucessful experience.
Emily's doesn’t focus on the size or status of her practice, or of her client. Rather, her focus is on what is important: quality work, thorough communication, and thoughtful preparation of the client's immigration or naturalization matter. Emily prides herself on having the superior service one might expect from a large firm with the personal service and accessibility of a small practice. Your piece of mind is always in her thoughts.
Emily is experienced in various types of Adjustment of Status (Green Cards), Naturalization, Adoptions, Consulate Processing, DACA, Asylum, U-Visa, 601A, TN’s, Aliens of Extraordinary Ability, National Interest Waivers, H1B, E2 Visas, and more. In 2012, she formed her practice in San Francisco, California, and maintains a client base in the Bay area. Now, her practice is based out of Seattle, Washington. Additionally, before coming to California, Emily worked for a public defender's agency in Seattle, Washington. Over the three years working at that agency, she learned valuable information that can be very helpful in an immigration case; for instance, she is an expert in how to obtain records and how to communicate with government agencies.
Outside of winning approvals, Emily loves learning about the diverse and incredibly unique cultures of her clients and their families. For Emily, it is a joy to help unite loved ones or to assist people in achieving their lifelong dreams of US Citizenship or legal status.
Emily sincerely hopes she can help you in your immigration journey. Thank you, and good luck.
