Summary

Ms. Patricia C. Wall is an energetic and passionate attorney. She received her law degree in June 2003 from the Interamerican University School of Law. In May 2004, after passing her bar exam and being admitted to practice law by the Supreme Court of Puerto Rico, she started working for a former INS prosecutor, giving her a vast understanding and experience with US Immigration and Nationality Law.

When it comes to help, guide, and counsel clients from all walks of life and from more than 15 countries, Attorney Wall attributes her success to her multicultural education, multilingual background, and extensive immigration experience. She has been an avid advocate of foreign nationals’ rights and their families in and outside the Unites States. Although her practice has been in South Florida, she has represented individuals nationwide.

In April 8, 2019, Attorney Wall was awarded by the Coral Gables Police Department the “Justice for All Award” for her outstanding contribution representing and advocating for victims of crimes through her pro-bono legal work. She courageously worked to give victims a voice in the criminal justice system and through the US Immigration Laws, providing much-needed services to survivors in need. This nomination was part of the National Victim’s Rights Week celebrated every year in collaboration with the Office for Victims of Crime of the Office of Justice Programs, U.S. Department of Justice.

Attorney Wall focuses exclusively on helping immigrants navigate the complex US Immigration and Nationality Law; she represents and guides foreign nationals/immigrants obtain asylum, establish legal residency, become US citizens, and help them reunite with their families here in the US.
