Las Vegas immigration lawyer Amber Fuhriman is passionate about helping non-citizens navigate the daunting legal gauntlet of achieving and maintaining legal residency in the U.S. Since graduating Magna Cum Laude from law school, she has represented multiple foreign defendants in all stages of immigration.
As a Nevada immigration lawyer, Amber has accompanied several clients to interviews with United States Citizenship and Immigraiton Services (USCIS) for such purposes as:
Amber has also gained ample courtroom experience: Most notably, she successfully argued an immigration case in the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals in San Francisco. And she victoriously represented alien clients on appeal to the Board of Immigration Appeals.
In addition, Amber is one of the few Nevada attorneys who is equally competent in both immigration law and criminal defense. The stakes are much higher for aliens facing criminal charges than for American citizens. Therefore, Amber carefully crafts defense strategies that minimize her clients' chances of being deported by the U.S. Immigrant and Customs Enforcement (ICE) while safeguarding their path to citizenship.
Amber graduated in the top 3% from Thomas M. Cooley Law School in Lansing, Michigan in 2013. As a student, she honed her courtroom skills by competing in Cooley's Moot Court and Mock Trial teams. She also scored the highest grades in two of her classes, including "personal and professional responsibility."
Amber is licensed to practice law in all Nevada state and federal courts as well as the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals and the Board of Immigration Appeals. Hailing from Idaho, she received her B.S. from Idaho State University in 2009. Amber is also experienced in personal injury law and family law.
