The Law Offices of Marcin Podskarbi was founded by attorney Marcin Podskarbi. Since the opening of our first law office in West Hollywood, we have been devoted to help people from all around the world deal with Immigration and Naturalization law.
Marcin Podskarbi has over ten years experience with immigration process. As most of you browsing through our website, Mr. Podskarbi had to struggle with immigration difficulties. This is why Marcin decided to help others and became immigration attorney.
Marcin attended law school in Poland, which he graduated in 2006 and moved to U.S. Marcin studied at California Western School of Law in San Diego, where he obtained his Masters degree in Comparative Law. Marcin attended multiple seminars and courses, including but not limited to immigration and naturalization, stock market investments, business management, entertainment law and many more.
Although, practice of immigration law does not require having bar license of State of California, but “any law license even from another country” Marcin passed California Bar exam, considered the hardest bar exam in U.S. and he also passed very hard Bar exam in Poland. What is exceptional about it is that Marcin has passed both bar exams in two countries in the same year, which is extremely difficult!
Through over ten years dealing with immigration process Marcin overseen countless numbers of visas approved for numerous of individuals and families. Marcin has also extensive knowledge of business immigration.
What makes Mr. Podskarbi stand out from the rest of immigration attorneys is a fact, that Marcin takes care of every one of his cases as it would be his own. Also, Marcin knows first handedly how hard it is to fight the immigration process as he had to change his U.S. visas and status multiple times, before he established this office.
Thus, whatever immigration issues you are dealing with, chances are Marcin went through it as well. So ask yourself, who will understand you better than a person who was once in your shoes?
