Deanna is an attorney who practices immigration law in Arizona and California. She was born and raised in Los Angeles, California. Deanna’s family is from El Salvador. Her parents immigrated to the United States from El Salvador due to that country’s Civil War in the 1980s; her parent’s experience as refugees is the reason she pursued a career as an immigration lawyer. Deanna received a Bachelor of Arts degree from California State University Northridge and obtained her law degree from Arizona Summit Law School. In law school, Deanna interned at a criminal-immigration firm and participated in various immigration clinics. Working with clients who were facing a host of immigration challenges gave her a first-hand account of how our nation’s immigration policy impacts everyday people. This experience inspired her to start her own law practice.
Deanna represents clients in removal and bond proceedings before the Executive Office for Immigration Review (EOIR) and the Board of Immigration Appeals (BIA). She also represents clients before the United States Citizenship and Immigration Service (USCIS), which includes family petitions, waivers, naturalization applications, U-visa and T-visa petitions, and work authorizations, among other things. Deanna also assists clients wishing to emigrate to the United States from abroad that includes “consular processing,” K-visas, and tourists visas, to name a few.
