A Immigration Lawyer who is also an Immigrant

If you are an immigrant or a family member of an immigrant and you are facing the challenges that Arizona presents based upon the state’s immigration policies, you have a legal ally with Anya McLean. If you or someone you love is being housed in one of Arizona’s federal detention centers or are in fear of deportation, you may be afraid for yourself or your family. You may feel that the better life that you came to this country to build is in jeopardy. You may not understand all of the information being presented to you by government officials regarding your responsibilities, rights, and options. Immigration Law Attorney Anya McLean can help. As someone who has gone through the immigration process herself, she has first-hand experience with the issues immigrants face. Ms. McLean can assist with a variety of immigration-related legal issues, including:



Clear Your Record and Keep Your Family Intact

The legal term for having a conviction removed from your record is “set aside,” although sometimes this process is referred to as “expungement” or “having your record cleared.” While many people who are convicted of crimes seek to have their convictions set aside, but this process is especially important to immigrants. Legal status of immigrants can be dramatically affected by a criminal charge or conviction.

Our firm assists immigrants charged with a variety of crimes. Having criminal convictions set aside can mean the difference between remaining in the United States with your family and being deported. We are dedicated to our clients and the immigrant community. Our goal is to clear your record and keep your family intact.

We stand ready to assist immigrants charged with crimes including:



Helping Immigrants Build a Better Life

Although your goal may be legal permanent residency, it is possible that alternatives exist that may be more appropriate for keeping your family together. Our firm will base your family’s immigration strategy on a number of factors, including:

The number of relatives you have who are United States citizens or legal permanent residents
Whether any members of your family are currently undergoing adjustment of status
Eligibility for a green card (legal permanent residency)
Criteria for other types of visas

The paperwork involved in the immigration process is extensive and it is imperative that everything be filled out accurately and in a timely manner. Mistakes can cost you money, time, and your chance to remain close to the people you love. It is easy to be overwhelmed, especially when English is not your first language. Our staff is multilingual and will work with you to obtain the necessary information and submit forms correctly the first time. We are also able to represent you at any required immigration interviews.
Ms. McLean is an experienced immigration attorney who has been through this process herself. She has devoted her career to paying it forward and helping immigrants build a better life for themselves in the United States.

  • When my family needed help...
         When my family needed help and we did not have much money to pay for a lawyer, Anya and Meral really helped me. With their hard work and dedication my husband did not get deported back to a country he did not know and he is back home and safe with me and his son. if you are looking for help and someone who understands and not just wants your money call this law firm, they are more then just lawyers.

  • Ms Anya McLean was my immigration attorney...
         Ms Anya McLean was my immigration attorney in immigration court. She represented me during removal proceedings while I was detained. Without her help and professionalism, I would’ve been sent back to my country. As of today. I still reside in Los Angeles with my wife and family. I strongly recommend Ms McLean to anyone who needs representation in immigration court and need to go in front of the judge.
