Seattle / Bellevue Immigration Lawyer:
Visas, Green Cards & Citizenship
Barbara Marcouiller has been an immigration attorney for more than 20 years. She and her firm are devoted entirely to helping clients in Seattle, Bellevue and beyond with citizenship, employment, and family-based immigration matters, and other immigration matters including asylum, DACA, and VAWA.

We fought for one client for 8 years – going from the Immigration Judge to the Board of Immigration Appeals, back to the Immigration Judge, back to the Board of Immigration Appeals, to the Federal Court of Appeals, and back to the immigration judge who ruled for our client.
