About Sarah A. Asad, Esq.
Sarah's interest in immigration law stems from world travel and personal experience; a child of immigrants. She grew up in Japan and lived there for 16 years before moving to the United States. After graduating magna cum laude from Santa Clara University in California with a degree in Political Science and a minor in History, Sarah went on to earn her Juris Doctor with Honors from Concord Law School in Los Angeles.
Her multi-cultural background has taught her the true meaning of diversity in the United States. Besides speaking English, Ms. Asad is also fluent in Japanese, Urdu, Hindi, and Punjabi, enabling her to serve many people who would otherwise have difficulties in communicating their legal needs.
She worked for The Katharine & George Alexander Community Law Center in San Jose before becoming a member of the State Bar of California. There, she worked with a diverse array of individuals and their unique immigration situations, gaining the expertise necessary to be an effective advocate for her clients before the U.S. government.
Due to the federal nature of her immigration practice, she is able to work with and advocate for clients from anywhere in the United States and around the world.
Now in Orlando, FL, Sarah continues to serve the community and her clients with the same high level of professionalism and ethics she was known for in Georgia.
Sarah’s own immigration experiences with USCIS makes her well aware of the effects the process has on every aspect of a person’s life. She takes every case seriously and works with precision, detail, and thoroughness. She listens to her clients carefully to make sure she understands their needs and works to ease the anxieties many immigrants have about the immigration process. She advocates before the U.S. government and its courts to the best of her ability, and aims to humanize the application process by representing each client as an individual in front of the immigration authorities reviewing their case.
After successfully passing the bar exam, Ms. Asad became a member of the State Bar of California. She is an active member of the American Immigration Law Association (AILA).
Ms. Asad treats every client with respect and integrity. Her diversity allows her to communicate effectively. She understands the nuances of different cultures and how it shapes peoples' understanding of the immigration system. She believes that an important aspect of her job is to make the process easier for her clients.

A Personal Message
Having a heart of an immigrant, I understand my clients as if their story is mine. Every immigrant goes through the pain of leaving one's own country looking for a better or distinct future for themselves and their children.
The countries of their birth are imprinted in their hearts be it through their outlook of life, their parents, relatives, or merely with the way they look. Immigrating is exciting, confusing, conflicted, but also harmonious. Immigrants go through a combination of a flood of emotions in accepting and owning the country they decide to spend their lives in. After all, we all have one life to live.
Most of the time it's easy to stay behind but yet the immigrants seek and discover that maybe there's something more out here in the United States for them. I respect that courage to seek and I respect the resolution of conflicts that immigrants pass through. Most importantly, I understand. I have traveled the world and lived in two countries. The United States is what I chose proudly for she accepted me with open arms.
Therefore, I respect my clients' choice to be here and to contribute. With that attitude I understand and then I advocate. Thank you for considering me for your important immigration needs. I know that sometimes it is a matter of life and death even though it may not seem so to any other.
