Prior successful cases

Example cases that this lawyer has handled for their clients

EB-2 NIW for a Nigerian Lawyer

EB-2 NIW for a Nigerian Lawyer

Visa type: EB-2 NIW

Who: Sustainability Expert Who is also a Nigerian Lawyer


Background: Nigerian lawyer who practiced law for more than a decade in Nigeria. He came to the U.S. on an F-1 student visa to study environmental law. Post graduation, he obtained a prestigious fellowship in the environmental law field with a specific concentration in sustainability. Ultimately, we reviewed his qualifications and determined he could meet the criteria for the EB-2 category with a national interest waiver (NIW). However, because he was a student within the U.S. on an F-1 visa, his ability to work as a sustainability expert was limited. Therefore, his status as an expert in the field of sustainability was not apparent through his limited years of work experience in that field


My work: I framed his EB-2 NIW request to emphasize the innovative nature of his publications and the impact of his limited work experience as a sustainability expert while minimizing his experience practicing law. This was the strategy because generally, establishing eligibility for the NIW is an uphill battle for a lawyer

Result: The petition and EB-2 NIW approved

Green card for a teen from Cameroon

Green card for a teen from Cameroon

Visa type: Green card

Who: Teen from Cameroon with criminal record granted a green card


Background: Teen whose biological mother was a U.S. citizen followed his mother to the United States. He initially entered the U.S. lawfully to visit his mother. Before he could complete the family-based green card process, he was arrested and placed in juvenile court proceedings. He did not disclose this arrest in his initial green card application. He was initially denied a green card due to his prior juvenile record


My work: Upon being retained, I refilled his application for a green card with additional supporting evidence of the circumstances behind his juvenile arrest and drafted a brief arguing his past juvenile record does not bar him from obtaining a green card. I also collected and submitted additional evidence of his good character and community ties to show that he deserved a favorable exercise of discretion by the immigration officer

Result: Green card application was granted

Asylum for a child from Guatemala

Asylum for a child from Guatemala

Visa type: Asylum

Who: Minor asylum seeker from Guatemala


Background: Child with some developmental delays and mental health conditions was abused extensively by father. The father was a leader in a criminal gang in Guatemala. The father also abused the client's mother, grandmother, and other siblings, even killing one of the young children. The client, being the oldest child in his family, was able to escape his small town and make his way to the United States


My work: I crafted arguments for a grant of asylum based on the particular social group of the father's family. Establishing the nuclear family as a particular social group for purposes of proving eligibility for asylum is a difficult task as the case law was very ambiguous at the time. I established a record of expert witnesses such as country condition experts and medical and mental health providers. I drafted compelling declarations from the client and the client's friends and family based on my interviews with each of these individuals

Result: The client was granted asylum

Hi Ariel, Just wanted to say THANK YOU for an amazing service and assistance with this case. It started a year ago, and now after all those months, I can relax (at least from this aspect). Just to share with you that it was one of the biggest administration challenges I need to complete as part of the company's Reset. Thank you again

Daliah was recommended to my husband and me by an executive at the company we both work for, and she was very helpful as we prepared for my husband's K1 visa to immigrate to the United States. She provided Certified English Translations for my husband's Israeli documents, including court records. She met with us and helped us organize our documentation and navigate the visa process.
