In the news

Mr. Amiri’s law practice is 100% dedicated to Immigration and Nationality Law. He has handled thousands of immigration cases ranging from deportation defense, bond hearings, and asylum proceedings to family petitions and employment and business-based immigration applications. Mr. Amiri’s client portfolio consists of nationalities from all over the globe. Mr. Amiri’s immigration practice extends all over the State of Arizona, and he is licensed to appear in federal Immigration Courts across the country, and in U.S. District Court in Arizona.

Mr. Amiri began his legal career in 2011 as an associate attorney at one of the largest volume immigration firms in Arizona. In 2016, he moved to Los Angeles, CA to start a solo practice at a time when immigration was heavily featured in the national zeitgeist. Mr. Amiri embraced this challenge and soon found himself featured in the Los Angeles Times when he and a group of attorneys volunteered at the Los Angeles International Airport on the day when the infamous Travel Ban was announced by the Department of Homeland Security. Mr. Amiri continued his solo practice until he and his family relocated to Arizona in early 2019.

Mr. Amiri earned his Juris Doctor from the Sandra Day O’Connor College of Law at Arizona State University where he focused on civil justice and mediation. Mr. Amiri attended the University of California, San Diego where he earned degrees in World Literature and Political Science/ International Relations from one of the most prestigious programs in the country.

Mr. Amiri’s career representing foreign nationals and their families in immigration matters came together quite naturally- he is the son of an Iranian immigrant who became a naturalized U.S. citizen and then immigrated his own family to the United States during a time of political and social upheaval in his home country. Mr. Amiri has spent his life immersed in different cultures, he learned Spanish on mission trips with his church to Baja California, Mexico, and refined his language skills while studying abroad at the Universidad de Sevilla, in Seville, Spain.

When he is not litigating a case in the courtroom or accompanying a client to U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services for an interview, Mr. Amiri enjoys spending quality time with his wife and toddler, being outdoors, listening to music, and cooking.
