Each day, immigrants from all over the world pursue the dream of American citizenship. Unfortunately, many immigrants lose their opportunity for U.S. citizenship because they lack proper legal representation. Immigration, citizenship and nationality are increasingly complex and dynamic areas of law. Only dedicated and experienced professionals can be expected to keep up with the demands of guiding clients through this ever changing environment.

Kazmi & Sakata is a full-service business and family immigration and nationality law firm founded by Harun Kazmi and Cliff Sakata. As experienced San Diego Immigration Attorneys, we have represented clients nationally and internationally. Our highly efficient services include a variety of immigration-related matters:

  • Business and Employment Immigration
  • Family Immigration
  • Naturalization
  • Consulate Processing
  • Corporate Law

We have represented a wide range of clients across worldwide boundaries, including: multinational corporations, partnerships, sole proprietorships, entrepreneurs, investors, teachers, students, engineers, architects, scientific researchers, specialty chefs, artists, entertainers, healthcare workers, economists, financial analysts and marketing managers.

We pride ourselves on the direct access clients have with our attorneys. A client can reach one of us any day and will not deal with paralegals or assistants, because everyone's immigration issue requires the knowledge and capabilities of an experienced immigration attorney.

We represent clients before government agencies across the United States, including  the U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (formerly INS), the U.S. Department of Labor, the U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement , and the U.S. Customs and Border Protection. Although our office is located in California, we are qualified to represent all immigration clients in visa applications throughout the United States and in U.S. consular processing throughout the world.

On March 1, 2003, the Immigration and Naturalization Service (INS) became part of the United States Department of Homeland Security and its functions were divided into three bureaus of that department:

  • USCIS - U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services
  • ICE - U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement
  • CBP - U.S. Customs and Border Protection

As skilled San Diego Immigration Attorneys, we possess a thorough understanding of immigration law and handle a variety of cases governed by USCIS including:

  • Permanent Resident
