Welcome to the law office of Attorney Laura Fernandez, a practice focused on immigration and naturalization law.
I am licensed in the State of Wisconsin. Because immigration law is federal, however, this license allows me to represent people in certain immigration matters anywhere in the United States.
Immigration has impacted my life in a profound way. My personal experiences through travel and petitioning a family member put me on a path through law school and now to having my own immigration law practice. I have experienced the fear, anxiety, apprehension, and confusion that comes with navigating the United States immigration system. Since January of 2011, I have been working to provide effective, skilled, and compassionate legal representation to immigrants and their family members.
I aim - along with my staff - to provide excellent legal services for reasonable fees. For most types of cases, we will charge a flat fee and offer a payment plan. I specialize in waivers and consular processing, and have extensive experience with the provisional waiver program, with other complex waivers, and assisting relatives of U.S. citizens and lawful permanent residents to return to the U.S. post removal. We also represent people in most types of family-based immigration cases, applications for Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals, as well as humanitarian relief such as U visas and applications for VAWA for victims of domestic violence. In the coming months, we will also begin accepting cases for those seeking Deferred Action under the November 20, 2014 executive actions.
