Immigration law, beyond borders

Award-winning immigration attorney, ardent human rights advocate, and firm co-founder, Raul F. Guerra has served as a trusted legal voice for underserved populations since 2006.

Having represented clients in state and federal courts, including the U.S. Supreme Court, Guerra makes the traditionally challenging path to becoming a lawful permanent resident or U.S. citizen more attainable with an aggressive yet practical litigation approach. His exceptional track record of success has garnered recognition from The National Trial Lawyers, Lawyers of Distinction and the American Association of Attorney Advocates, among several other reputable organizations.

Guerra is also well known for his proficiency in appellate law. If he doesn’t secure an ideal case outcome the first time, then he has the grit, knowledge, and compassion needed to fight through the higher courts and Board of Immigration Appeals until he lands desired results for his clients.

While Guerra’s primary focus is on immigration law, he also has expertise in post-conviction and personal injury matters.

Guerra earned a J.D. from the University of Nebraska. Also heavily involved in the community, Guerra prides his practice on advocating for equal treatment of immigrants ­– both professionally and personally.
