The American Visa Law Group is an immigration law firm based in San Jose, California, in the heart of the Bay Area between San Francisco and Oakland, serving clients nationwide. Our firm represents individuals, families and businesses in all types of immigration law matters. Some of our areas of practice include employment based immigration (including H-1B petitions, EB1 to EB5 petitions, L-1 petitions, O-1, and E visa petitions), family based immigration, political asylum, VAWA and U-Visa petitions, and citizenship through naturalization. We provide each and every one of our clients with the personal attention they deserve. Each case is assigned to a team of professionals with knowledge and expertise in immigration law.

The law firm was founded by American Immigration Lawyers Association (AILA) attorney Hasan Abdullah after he gained several years of experience handling a wide variety of immigration cases, managing and training numerous attorneys and paralegals. He was selected as a Top 40 Under 40 Attorney in the state of California by the American Society of Legal Advocates, and based on awards, industry experience, and peer recognition, our lead attorney has earned a score of 10.0 by the Avvo attorney rating service, which is their top rating score which only a small percentage achieve. We also have a multilingual staff able to speak Spanish, Hindi, Telugu, Arabic, Urdu, Punjabi, Farsi and Gujerati.

The approach that the firm is guided by is simple: quality above all else. The only way for this to be accomplished is to ensure that every case is reviewed and supervised by a detail-oriented and creative immigration attorney. We understand the risk of disaster in an immigration case can be high without proper counsel, and unfortunately, it often takes months for an untrained person to realize that a case was botched due to careless work. Therefore, selecting a law firm to handle your case is not something to take lightly. You can expect our team to bring you an unparalleled combination of integrity, expert knowledge, and diligence.
