Larrabee | Mehlman | Albi | Coker LLP

LARRABEE | MEHLMAN | ALBI | COKER LLP is an AV rated, nationally recognized leader in the field of employment-based immigration and is well-respected for its extensive substantive knowledge of immigration law, as well as the ethical, political and economic aspects of immigration law and policy. Initially founded by Peter Larrabee, the firm is currently headed by partners Sharon R. Mehlman, Fausta M. Albi, and Diana Vellos Coker, all of whom have been acknowledged by the Best Lawyers in America publication for legal excellence in the field of immigration law. Our diverse staff comprised of over thirty attorneys and paraprofessionals (paralegals, legal assistants, and administrative staff) brings a wide array of talents, education, and experience to their positions. The Firm employs individuals who are proficient in Spanish, Italian, French, Russian, Japanese and Chinese. Almost all members of our staff have a bachelor's degree, and several hold advanced degrees. Our firm has extensive experience in many aspects of immigration law, including all nonimmigrant visa classifications; labor certifications; employment-based and family-based immigrant visas; and adjustment of status and consular processing cases. Our attorneys’ substantive knowledge includes a full understanding of all potential ancillary issues, such as compliance with I-9 and workplace enforcement issues; grounds of inadmissibility to and removal from the United States; and laws and policies relating to national security. In addition, our attorneys are very active in the American Immigration Lawyers' Association at local and national levels, which enhances our firm’s knowledge of constantly changing laws, policies and procedures, and allows the Firm to make positive contributions to such changes. Because immigration laws are constantly changing, we often interpret how new laws should be implemented. We are able to advise our clients and strategize with them on how to employ and retain employees in the face of these constantly changing immigration laws and procedures. Our clients range from large, public companies to small start-up companies, as well as many universities, educational and research institutes. We recognize the urgent time constraints of the competitive business world faced by our corporate clients. We also recognize how critically important it is to education and research that our schools, universities, and research institutes are able to attract and retain the best and brightest talent from around the globe. LARRABEE | MEHLMAN | ALBI | COKER LLP is located in the heart of San Diego’s technology center.
