The Law Offices of Fellom & Solorio

About Us

Certified Specialist in U.S. Immigration Law; Se Habla Español; Practicing for more than 20 years

The Law Offices of Fellom & Solorio was established as a partnership in January 1995 between Nancy A. Fellom and Paula J. Solorio, Attorneys at Law. The firm was previously a sole proprietorship doing business as the Law Offices of Nancy A. Fellom from 1989 in San Francisco. The firm currently employs three associate attorneys and four support staff, in addition to the two partners.

The Law Offices of Fellom & Solorio is dedicated to providing the highest level of representation to immigrants seeking to enter the United States or to remain here. We represent clients from all backgrounds and are committed to providing superior representation at an affordable cost. Our clients seek to improve the lives of their families and communities and to work hard to accomplish their dreams. We respect these ideals, and we work with our clients to reunite families in the United States.

At present, the firm is managing more than 1,500 open files dealing with all aspects of immigration law — including political asylum, deportation defense, naturalization, family reunification and business immigration. The firm is a designated legal services provider for the San Francisco Culinary Workers, Bartenders and Service Employees Union, Local 2. The vast majority of clients are individuals who are being referred by former clients, non-profit agencies and other attorneys.

The partners are committed to assisting political refugees, who often are non-English-speaking, with complex asylum claims. Fellom & Solorio is proud to take on the challenging cases that are often declined by other firms. In doing so, Fellom & Solorio has gained the respect of the DHS, colleagues and opposing counsel.

The firm volunteers a minimum of 20 attorney hours per month as pro bono counsel with the Immigration Court. Also, we volunteer with the Centro Legal de La Raza immigration project and are frequently called upon to mentor other attorneys through the Lawyers Committee Pro Bono Asylum Project. We are proud to be listed as a low-fee referral by La Raza, BASF, ILRC and the National Directory of Public Interest Law Firms. Both partners are State Bar Certified Specialists in U.S. Immigration & Nationality Law and are frequent presenters at CLE seminars. All attorneys and staff are bilingual, in Spanish and English.
