About Our Firm

Immigration Law

Not all immigration attorneys are made equal. At Ana M. Mencini & Associates, P.C. we are highly knowledgeable about immigration law and skilled in applying it to benefit our clients.  We provide high-quality legal services to clients and offer a full range of immigration services to clients in and around the Chicago area.  We help clients obtain the immigration benefits they need to visit the U.S., study in the U.S., work in the U.S., and live in the U.S. temporarily or permanently.  We also help clients fight to stay in the U.S. if they are facing removal/deportation.

Like the tax code, Immigration law is supremely complex and often difficult for non-lawyers to understand.  We are experienced in the application of all types of Immigration law.  We work with our clients to ensure applications are completed correctly, deadlines are met, and problems are addressed effectively.  It is important to handle Immigration matters right the first time because you may not have an opportunity to correct mistakes.
If you or a loved one is in need of Immigration assistance, contact our firm to schedule a consultation and discuss your case. Your Immigration matters are too important to trust to just anyone.


It is quite unsettling to be charged with a crime, which often leads to indecision on what the next step should be as an individual. Shock, fear, and the unknown of what the consequences will leave most wondering where to start. For a first-time criminal charge, it can feel like the world is against you.

The first order of business is to secure a competent and skilled criminal defense attorney who will protect your rights at the nearest possible moment. Having your attorney at your side as soon as it is possible will strengthen your case and increase your chance of a favorable result.

When all seems hopeless and the worst is about to happen, please call to set an appointment to discuss your case. There may be more hope to winning than how it appears. At Ana M. Mencini and Associates, P.C. we exhaust every possible avenue to find a path to freedom.
