Angelica Maria Ochoa

Angelica is a partner in the firm's Denver office.

Her practice covers virtually all aspects of employment-based immigration into the United States. She has experience in obtaining nonimmigrant work visas and employment-based immigrant visas for management, professionals and specialized skills employees. With respect to employment-based nonimmigrant work visas, she advises and represents companies in the preparation of a variety of petitions (e.g. B, E, H, L, O, P, R and TN petitions). With respect to employment-based immigrant petitions, she advises and represents clients in all employment preference categories (1st, 2nd and 3rd), as well as adjustment of status. She also advises companies on I-9 employment eligibility verification (IRCA) best practices and assists clients through I-9 compliance issues. She regularly provides management training on immigration-related subjects.

Angelica has experience with guiding foreign clients through consular processing of both nonimmigrant and immigrant visas. In addition, she represents clients in appeals to the Administrative Appeal Office (AAO). She also has a wide range of experience with family-based immigrant petitions (e.g., K-1/K-3 visas, adjustment of status, 245(i) cases, hardship waivers) and naturalization and citizenship applications.

She has also practiced in the areas of commercial and tort litigation. Her experience in these areas include cases involving product liability, personal injury and real estate disputes.

Angelica was elected for inclusion in the 2010 and 2011 Colorado Super Lawyers Rising Stars editions under the practice area of Immigration.
