Course Information:
This CLE course will include an overview of the immigration process, with particular focus on the differences in treatment of foreigners who are in the U.S. as compared to those outside the U.S. seeking entry. Immigration is about making strategic choices for clients to help put them in the best position to succeed.

A former prosecutor with the City of San Diego and Assistant Attorney General, Republic of the Marshall Islands, Allan Lolly has more than 20 years’ experience as an attorney. Allan S. Lolly & Associates PC, is devoted entirely to family immigration matters, having obtained more than 12,000 visas and green cards for family members. Mr. Lolly’s practice includes stateside and consular processing and appeals for foreigners in the U.S. undocumented or out of status; bar waivers based on illegal entry, over stays, and certain crimes.

“I strive to develop personal relationships with my clients. Immigrating family members can be a stressful experience.  Success in case processing makes all the difference in the lives of each family.”
