Attorney Lana Elliott
Lana Elliott was born in the Baltic Region of Russia, and spent part of her life there and part of her life in Ukraine. In adulthood, recognizing a personal passion for helping others, especially children, Lana attended medical college where she received a Nursing Degree with honors. Although she enjoyed working as a nurse at a children’s hospital, Lana realized that being a lawyer is her true destiny. For her, Law represented the ability to make a difference, and to help in the struggle to protect an individual’s rights and liberties. Lana pursued her career in law by attending and graduating with honors from the Ukrainian National Academy of Law in Kharkov. Having an interest in the law of other countries and especially the United States, she chose to begin a new and exciting life in America, studying its legal system. She was accepted to the University of Idaho College of Law in Moscow, Idaho and received her Juris Doctorate degree in 2004.
Lana recognizes on a personal level the steps, challenges, rewards and frequent obstacles found in the post-9/11 immigration process. With her two law degrees, and being an immigrant to the U.S. herself, Lana has become well educated in American Immigration Law. Recognizing her unique insight into an often complex legal immigration process, Lana has devoted her law career specifically to Immigration Law.
Lana practices family, asylum, removal, and other areas of Immigration Law. She also helps her clients to obtain immigrant and non-immigrant visas, green cards and citizenship. In addition to the main Spokane law office in February of 2018 Elliott Law Group has opened a second office in Coeur d’Alene, Idaho to serve the immigrant community of Coeur d’Alene, Post Falls, Sandpoint and other areas of North Idaho. Although Elliott Law Group is physically located in Eastern Washington and North Idaho, Lana works with clients in all fifty states and also world-wide.
