Lisa M. Jacobs, Attorney at Law
US Immigration & Nationality Law


My professional concentration is U.S. immigration and nationality law. I offer friendly, attentive and personalized service and strive to develop excellent, professional relationships with clients. Twenty years of experience in immigration law, combined with many years of living abroad have given me an excellent foundation for working with immigrants.

I offer comprehensive business and family immigration services, but I have also developed a particular expertise and achieved a high level of success across hundreds of cases for people who have extraordinary abilities in their field. I work with clients and consult with law firms from across the United States and abroad. Brief e-mail consultations may often be arranged at no cost.
