Attorney Ekaterina Powell is a California-based immigration attorney working in San Diego. As a Russian immigrant, she is well aware of the complications a foreign national may experience upon moving to the United States. It was her experience as an immigrant, coupled with a desire to pursue law which inspired her to enter the field of immigration law.
In 2007, Ekaterina graduated from Samara State University in Samara, Russia with a degree in English legal translation as well as bachelor’s and master’s degrees in law. She subsequently moved to California and attended California Western School of Law in San Diego, where she graduated cum laude in 2009 with an LL.M. degree. Upon completion of her schooling, she was accepted as a California State Bar member.
Ekaterina primarily focuses on employment-based, investment-based and family-based immigration visas. She is an active member of the American Immigration Lawyers Association and has extensive experience in EB-5 investor visa cases, H-1B compliance issues, immigrant and non-immigrant work visas, citizenship cases, asylum, permanent residency, reconsiderations of previously denied cases, and deportation matters. She has published a number of articles regarding these very processes, many of which can be found on multiple professional sites as a reference to you with a simple google search.
