Alyssa Nguyen

Alyssa Nguyen opened her immigration law practice, Nguyen Firm LLC, after an early career clerking for a senior judge, working as a prosecutor and two notable law firms.

She draws upon her 15-plus years of experience in the law to deliver creative, purposeful solutions in complex immigration matters and related areas of criminal and family law. She often represents clients on family and criminal law matters due to serious potential immigration consequences for the client. She is a unique attorney with the ability to communicate with people from professional, diverse, ethnic and socioeconomic backgrounds.

She is a known authority in immigration law. She speaks at conferences and provides CLE training for the American Immigration Law Association. She acts as a mentor and provides pro bono representation to the Immigrant Law Center and U of M law school bond project.

“This area of law changes rapidly,” Nguyen said. “One of the most important things I can do for my clients is giving them the right expectations and keeping them informed, which can be difficult because the law changes so rapidly.”

Nguyen earned her bachelor’s degree and a paralegal degree from Hamline University in 1997 before earning her Juris Doctor from William Mitchell College of Law in 2004.

Among some of her honors is being featured at the Attorney of the Month in the 2018 Women in Law issue of Attorney at Law Magazine Minnesota and the receipt of the WE Award honoring women in business as well as the 10 Best Immigration Attorneys by AIL Counsel in 2016.

About Minneapolis Immigration Law

A Minneapolis immigration lawyer focuses specifically on the area of law which deals with the movement of people in and out of the United States, especially as it relates to visas and residency. Immigration law is a practice area that is governed by federal law, so whomever you choose to represent you does not need to live in the same state where you reside. Yet, you probably know that United States Immigration law is not only complex, but it can also change quickly depending on the political climate. In most travel visa situations, you may not need an immigration attorney to represent you. Yet, in cases which involve temporary or permanent residency or citizenship in Minnesota, hiring an immigration lawyer in Minneapolis can save you from costly mistakes and help you more successfully navigate whichever process you need to complete.

Most immigration attorneys in Minneapolis offer free consultations or a minimal fee to evaluate your case. When in doubt, it’s in your best interest to schedule a consultation. Some common scenarios which typically require the expertise of skilled immigration attorney include:

Alyssa did everything and more to get my case resolved and I am more than thankful for all that she did for me, my future and my family. I can honestly say that she is everything and more than I can ask for in a lawyer. Alyssa sat down with me and explained everything on the process and all the documents.
