    Providing assistance with family and business immigration matters.

Shannon Llenza Immigration Law LLC provides business and family immigration solutions. Managing attorney and business owner, Shannon Llenza, founded this law firm to pursue her passion for helping individuals who desire to come to the United States. She is dedicated to providing excellent legal services to help individuals achieve their immigration goal.


Shannon first worked on immigration issues while working as a intern for former U.S. Senator, Russ Feingold. During her internship, she worked with constituents and assisted them with a number of immigration issues. Shannon continued to help immigrants while attending Marquette University Law School, where she worked for Hochstatter, McCarthy and Rivas, an immigration law firm located in Milwaukee, Wisconsin. In her position, Shannon helped individuals with a wide variety of immigration issues related to family-based and employment-based visas.



Shannon has worked as an attorney, and a public servant, for over fourteen years. Immediately following law school, Shannon served for four years on active duty in the United States Navy JAG Corps as a prosecutor and defense counsel. She continues to serve as a reservist, currently working as an appellate defense attorney. After she left active duty, Shannon pursued a career in public service as an attorney for the U.S. government, to include working for the Department of Defense and the Department of Justice.


In 2015, Shannon moved to Washington State, where she decided to start her own law firm to pursue her desire to continue to help immigrants.  Shannon realizes the impact immigration law has on the lives of individuals, and her firm is dedicated to providing the highest quality legal representation for each unique matter presented.

Great lawyer, wonderful person
We hired Shannon to take care of some Visa issues. She was incredibly responsive and knowledgeable. Her research was thorough and we always felt like she was looking after our best interests. We'd hire her again in an instant.
