A Spokane Immigration Attorney in the Spokane Valley and Coeur d’Alene Who Speaks Spanish Knows the Importance of Diversity

Young Girl Immigration is a hot topic right now. News stories highlighting ICE raids and wall building have taken over the narrative recently. Many media stories about immigration can paint a pretty ugly picture. Yet diversity and immigration is still considered a foundation of America’s health. As immigration attorneys in Spokane and Coeur d’Alene area, we chose to handle this type of law because we understand the importance of immigration in this country. We know diversity is what keeps us innovative and strong. We are also passionate about serving the American immigrant community with green card and visa issues to the best of our abilities. That’s why our team of immigration attorneys speak Spanish! “Se Habla Español,” as they say.

Non-citizens working in this country can benefit by learning English, yet it’s a difficult language to master. It can take several years to study and translate properly. When it comes to legal discussions involving green cards and visas, our Coeur d’Alene and Spokane Valley lawyers want to make sure clients aren’t confused. Our Coeur d’Alene and Spokane immigration attorneys speak Spanish to ensure the message is clear. Not only is it helpful for our clients, it’s essential to success. When our lawyers practice the diversity of language, they help make it easier to process green cards, visas and citizenship status issues.

Potato or Patata a Spokane and Coeur d’Alene Immigration Attorney Who Speaks Spanish Gets the Message

The great potato famine of the 1840’s may seem like a strange topic when discussing diversity, but stick with us. During the early-mid 1800’s, the simple potato was a number one food source in Ireland. It was relied upon by Irish families, especially the poor, to feed their families. When a fungus spread, crops withered and thousands of people died from starvation. How could one simple fungus do this? Because only one type of potato was grown in Ireland. During the same period other countries including Peru had crops suffering from the same fungus, but people didn’t starve to death. Why? The answer was diversity. Other types of potatoes were immune to the fungus so crops could still flourish and keep the population fed. Yes we are immigration attorneys not history teachers, but this clearly explains how diversity keeps an economy moving forward.

When a family is dealing with a DACA issue, some members may lose out if they speak to an English-only lawyer. A misunderstanding could result in a court hearing or even a deportation. As immigration attorneys who speak Spanish as well as English we help every family member fully understand their options. Managing green cards, visas and other non-citizen issues doesn’t have to be difficult. An immigration attorney who speaks Spanish in Spokane, Wa and Coeur d’Alene is ready to assist!

Client Reviews
I applied for citizenship the first time, but my husband was previously denied citizenship. We hired Elliott Law Group and both Lana and Kate really exceeded our expectations. My husband and I just got sworn in as U.S. citizens! T.S.
I first hired Lana to help me obtain legal residency for my parents in 2006, then for my wife in 2007. She did a great job and my parents and wife got their green cards. Although Lana is not in California anymore, she still assists with immigration processes for other members of my family. I highly recommend her services to anyone who needs the help of a highly qualified immigration lawyer. S.P.
Good day, Atty. Lana. I would like to thank you for all the support and assistance. We appreciated and indeed, me and my wife very happy with how you handled my daughter’s case. We can personally say that we made the right decision for having your law office as our choice. tks a lot. V.N.
