Meet Our Firm
Jessica Kunevicius, Attorney
Jessica Kunevicius considers her chosen field of immigration law to be more of a calling than a profession. As an advocate for immigrants and their families, Jessica Kunevicius brings a sense of purpose, passion, and poise to the complex and oftentimes confusing area of U.S. immigration law. Think of her law firm as a lighthouse offering guidance and expertise to those who voyage or find themselves adrift on the seas of immigration.
A graduate of the Cleveland-Marshall College of Law, Jessica also holds a Master’s Degree in Public Administration, both from Cleveland State University. Her undergraduate degree is in Spanish, and she has spent a significant amount of time in South America. In 2007, Jessica founded her client-focused firm, where she continues to practice the spectrum of Immigration Law, including family-based immigration and deportation defense.
In addition to her firm, Jessica is actively involved in the American Immigration Lawyers Association (AILA) and was the Chairperson for the 2012 Immigrant Liberty Awards, which raised a record sum for the Rocky Mountain Immigrant Advocacy Network (RMIAN), a local nonprofit that works to ensure justice for men and women in immigration detention and for unaccompanied immigrant children. She continues to serve as a RMIAN Mentor to volunteer attorneys taking their first immigration cases.
Jessica’s passion for immigration extends into numerous outreach efforts and ongoing activism. She can often be found at pro-immigration rallies holding a sign demanding prompt and just immigration reform for people of all nationalities, orientations, and backgrounds.
