Maral Beyzaei is a California-licensed associate attorney at the Los Angeles Immigration Attorneys. As an Iranian immigrant herself who naturalized in this country as a child, she has a long-standing passion for helping the immigrant community which stems from her own personal experiences.
As an Iranian immigrant herself having been raised in Los Angeles, Maral attended high school at Flintridge Preparatory School in La Canada Flintridge, a suburb located in northwest Los Angeles, where she was encouraged to explore her interest in the law, government, public policy, and politics. Thereafter, she went on to graduate from Villanova University, a mid-sized university just outside of Philadelphia, with a bachelor’s degree majoring in psychology and minoring in communications and sociology. At Villanova, she continued to explore her passion for activism by founding the Villanova Student Activist Organization. At this point, she knew that she wanted to become an attorney to give those a voice to those in need, so she took one year off from school to work full-time as an immigration paralegal in a private Philadelphia law firm while applying to law schools around the country. During this time, she was accepted to and decided to attend Loyola University New Orleans College of Law. The city of New Orleans was at that time recovering from Hurricane Katrina, and the need for all helping hands on deck was what drew Maral to that city. In law school, she served on Loyola’s elite Moot Court Team, volunteered at the school’s immigration law clinic, and worked part-time at a local private firm. Upon graduation in 2013, she received her juris doctorate degree with a certificate in international legal studies. She then moved back to her beloved hometown of Los Angeles, took and passed the California bar exam, then hit the ground running in her work as a California licensed attorney with a passion for helping the immigrant community, a passion which stems from her own personal experiences. Maral Bayzaei is one of LA’s top immigration attorneys.
Maral’s main purpose in becoming a lawyer was to pursue her commitment to helping the underserved. For the majority of her legal career as an attorney, she has specialized solely in the practice of immigration law.It is where her heart lies. Her experience began first strictly handling removal and deportation defense cases, such as asylum and cancellation of removal cases before immigration judges nationwide. However, her experience quickly expanded to include also family and business-based immigration law matters, including but not limited to adjustment of status, naturalization, consular processing, and employment visas.She also specializes in criminal law insofar as it intersects with a client’s immigration issues, handling such subjects as quashing bench warrants, reducing and/or vacating sentences, and representing clients in certain misdemeanor cases before criminal courts all over Southern California. She works hard every day to give a voice to those who need one and have the right to be heard. Maral is fluent in Farsi and Spanish.
