Best Experience Ever!

Used him for my I-140 nursing visa currently working on my citizenship with him. He also helped me with my husband's and mom's green cards. I had originally called him to do the H1B but he asked me why do that...

While in law school, Mr. Kanu gained invaluable experience working as a law clerk for the Presiding Judge of the 54th District Court in Lansing, Michigan and with the California Attorney General’s Office in the Licensing Division. Mr. Kanu handled cases dealing with license revocations of registered nurses, pharmacists, dentists, general contractors, auto mechanics, and others.

Mr. Kanu was admitted to the practice of law in October 2001 by the Arizona Supreme Court. Since then, Mr. Kanu has focused on immigration law and related matters. He has represented individuals from at least 20 different countries in immigration and related matters. He represents individuals and organizations before the United States Citizenship Immigration Service across the United States and in immigration courts nationwide. Mr. Kanu also represents clients in criminal matters pending in Arizona as well as helps clients with small business concerns.

Mr. Kanu is a first-generation immigrant. He understands the hurdles involved in moving to and settling down in the United States. His goal is to make the journey easier for those coming after him.

Mr. Kanu writes:
I have been there and done that as an immigrant and so I understand why people come to the United States and why they want to stay, live, work and contribute to this great country. They want to be part of this great success and are willing to give it their best. The place of one’s birth does not have to be the place of one’s life or death. I have started and run businesses and know first-hand how difficult it can be to operate a profitable business without sound legal and financial advice.  It has to be done right from the beginning. I have represented many individuals in criminal actions for crimes they did not commit. I know what it takes to put smiles back on people’s faces and hope back in people’s lives. That is what I am all about. I am here to serve. This is not just a job for me, it is actually my calling and that is why I am good at it.
