The Sanchez Immigration Law office makes people feel welcome, with an atmosphere of genuine care for all seeking legal advice regarding immigration to the United States.
It becomes clear why such an atmosphere exists once Yasser F. Sanchez enters the office.
“I love the Gospel,” he says, “and I love America.”
Having come from an immigrant family who later converted to the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, Sanchez went on to graduate from Brigham Young University. He then completed law school at the J. Reuben Clark Law School. While there, he served as president of the Student Bar Association and president of the Latino Law Student Association. He currently serves on the Alumni Board as the Annual Alumni Giving Chair for BYU Law.
After working at a prominent law firm for a couple of years, Sanchez opened up his own practice in 2010.
Sanchez helps people from all walks of life start their own individual journeys in achieving the American Dream, just as he himself has.
“We love immigration law, as we help families stay together,” he states. “We help people navigate a very complex system the whole way through. Immigration is set up in a way to be difficult for immigrants.”
Sanchez’s immigration focus means that the firm is knowledgeable with issues such as the DREAM Act, temporary visas, deportation defense, and naturalization.
Sanchez Immigration Law Firm has been noted in multiple magazines, having been ranked among the top ten immigration law firms in Arizona, and the highest-rated immigration law firm in the East Valley. Sanchez has won multiple awards and honors as an attorney, including an Avvo rating of superb and recognition in The National Trial Lawyers: Top 40 under 40.
Although well known, Sanchez likes to keep the firm “small but mighty” as a force for doing good in the community. He has orchestrated multiple important projects for the Church under the direction of the Humanitarian Department. Sanchez also often travels around the state and nation as a presenter in clinics, workshops, and conferences regarding immigration.
Outside of practicing law, Sanchez, his wife Emily Romney Sanchez (from Thatcher, Arizona), and his children are actively involved in supporting the nonprofits Unidos por Libertad and MeHug Foundation.
Unidos for Libertad helps immigrants to learn English and self-sufficiency. MeHug Foundation helps families with children with special needs to receive needed financial and social support.
Yasser Sanchez is a man who knows how to love and to be himself, thus allowing him to help serve the many that leave his office with a brighter future and a reachable dream.
Sanchez states, “This nation has given me everything. I must do my best to help the best from around the world to make this their home.”
