Farzaneh Law Firm, and in particular the firm founder, Amir Farzaneh, have reputation for their expertise in all areas of immigration law. We spoke with Mr. Farzaneh (Attorney of the Year 2017, Oklahoma) to find out more about his firm and their work done in the field.
Farzaneh Law Firm was founded in 1996 by Amir Farzaneh. Mr. Farzaneh immigrated to the U.S. in the early ‘80’s. In his 20+ years practicing immigration law, Amir has established a reputation as an expert in all areas of immigration law. Together with his partner Tyler Christians, the firm is known to handle difficult, complex cases.
“At Farzaneh Law, we believe in utilizing a traditional approach to our clients to keep our services at the best they can possibly be. We value our clients very highly and provide them services above and beyond what is commonly seen in this industry. We are extraordinarily patient with our clients and take great care to ensure that each case be handle with the utmost care.”
“Working with us, you can count on the very best representation”, we were commented. “We are committed to do the very best for you and your case.
“We think it is very important for the client to know what’s happening with their cases. We think it is very important that our clients know all the options available to them. At the Farzaneh Law Firm, we understand that we work for our clients.”
“Our firm treats its clients like family. Mr. Farzaneh in particular treats each of his clients with deep respect and patience. Our attorneys pay the closest attention to their clients and truly take time to listen to their needs and their unique situation.”
Farzaneh Law Firm specializes in immigration casework, specifically those cases which can be more difficult to work with. Mr. Farzaneh has over 20 years of immigration casework experience and currently teaches Immigration Law at the Oklahoma City University Law School as an adjunct professor. Mr. Farzaneh is also a frequent speaker on Immigration Law issues and is also fluent in Farsi.
His partner, Tyler Christians, is also a skilled immigration attorney with over seven years of immigration law experience. Mr. Christians focuses his practice in the area of immigration law, business immigration law, and criminal defense. Before joining the Farzaneh Law Firm, Mr. Christians practiced in Northern Virginia for over two years, where he practiced primarily in the area of criminal defense. Mr. Christians has trial experience in felony and misdemeanor criminal cases, as well as traffic cases and personal injury cases.
When we asked how the practice of immigration law differed from other areas of practice in the legal field, the weight of consequence for clients was highlighted. “Immigration law is much different than other areas of law. Generally speaking, in the immigration field, we are handling cases that have a direct impact on whether someone gets to enter the US or remain in the US. In other words, the consequences of our clients’ representation have a direct impact on the course of our clients’ lives.”
And with the many complications found in US immigrations, the specialist council provided by Farzaneh Law is invaluable. “When the government indicates that a specific case has a specific timeline, this can often times be unrealistic with regards to the complexity of the case. Immigration work is unpredictable at times and our firm compensates this by being extra patient with our clients and to strive for 100% satisfaction.
“Our firm is known for taking the most difficult immigration cases that are turned down by other attorneys and receive fantastic results. We receive many referrals because of our history with such cases.”
“We value each and every one of our clients and recognize that without them, we would not be. We take the utmost care to return all client phone calls in a prompt manner and research each case thoroughly to provide the best solution to their immigration needs. Our clients understand that by hiring our firm, they are hiring the best in the industry and that each case will handled on its own schedule to ensure that no steps are missed.”
“Our clients share the most intimate and closely-held information in their lives, which is why confidentiality is not only the cornerstone of the practice of law, it is of vital importance to our practice.
“Clients generally don’t hire us to be neutral parties—they hire us to represent them in their interests. However, we do believe it’s important to discuss the possible ‘flaws’ or ‘problems’ with a client’s case. To maintain neutrality, it’s important that we are honest with our clients and have a thorough discussion about their case and all its elements.
“We feel it’s important to make sure our clients are treated fairly by any adversary in their case, whether it be the federal or state government or opposing private parties. We think that communication with the client will ultimately lead to a client feeling like the outcome was fair.”
When we spoke on matters relating to the current state of the immigration field, it became apparent that members of the firm must constantly remain up to date on matters of personal and commercial immigration to remain in any way competitive. “As the world becomes more mobile and interconnected every year, the needs and desires of our clients change. From a business-immigration standpoint, companies try to remain competitive and expand their markets. Our legal services must reflect this reality. From a family-based immigration standpoint, we have seen a shift to promote the unity of families, despite legal status, which creates more options for individuals in the US. Furthermore, as national security and immigration become more intertwined from a policy standpoint, we must make sure that clients are preparing and responding accordingly. Our services must reflect these realities as well.”
The firm’s plans for the future are set upon the potential in a future expansion. “Our firm is on the brink of expanding and will be moving into a brand new office space this coming spring. We are immensely excited to begin further establishing ourselves as the go-to-source for assistance when it comes to immigration case work and feel strongly that this expansion will only allow us to further best serve our clients.”
