The Alcorn Immigration Law team welcomes Anita Koumriqian as our newest associate.
An expert in immigration law with a passion for family immigration matters, Anita will focus on individual and family immigration cases including changes of status, marriage-based and family green cards, citizenship, and asylum. She will also accompany our clients to government interviews, which are required for all family and employment-based green cards.
“I’m excited to join a growing team of hard-working, focused, detail-oriented individuals who have created such a welcoming and supportive work environment,” says Anita. “It’s a family.”
Anita’s passion for family immigration law stems from her own family experience. Originally from Armenia, her parents immigrated to the U.S. from Iraq in 1995. Reuniting with family already living in Silicon Valley, they sought to provide more opportunities and a safer environment for Anita and her sisters.
“I love reuniting families and keeping families together” to create the life they’ve dreamed about in the U.S., she says.
Anita has extensive experience working on family law cases, including divorce, paternity matters, parental relocation, and grandparents’ rights. Her family law experience deepens her perspective on family immigration issues.
More About Anita
Born in Iraq, Anita came to the U.S. with her family at the age of 5. Her family waited 13 years to receive their green cards. Given her experience, she understands first-hand the struggles of immigrants trying to lead a safer, more prosperous life.
While attending college, Anita volunteered with JusticeCorps, an AmeriCorps program designed to help family law litigants—who are representing themselves—complete legal forms. In the short time since graduating from Santa Clara University School of Law and passing the bar in 2015, Anita has skillfully handled many business-, family-, and immigration-law cases, including deportation and removal defense work. During the past few years, Anita has worked with the Alcorn Immigration Law team on cases as of counsel.
Anita is trilingual—speaks Armenian fluently and knows basic Spanish.
