Attorney
  • Profile

Ivan Yacub has been on the forefront of representing immigrants in the DC metropolitan area and nationwide for more than two decades.

With published decisions from the Board of Immigration Appeals and the federal judiciary, Ivan Yacub has worked diligently in protecting immigrants from the harsh consequences of deportation. His work has taken him from the Eloy, Arizona, courthouse, to the familiar immigration court of Arlington, Virginia. He has filed numerous petition for reviews in the United States Court of Appeals for the Fourth, Fifth, Sixth, Ninth, and Eleventh Circuit Courts of Appeals.

In addition, Ivan Yacub has represented immigrants in the United States District Courts for the Eastern District of Virginia and Maryland. At the heart of the representation is working together with clients in creating an individualized strategy to protect their interests with full knowledge of the consequences of the chosen path.

Ivan Yacub has proudly published an article in the American Immigration Lawyers’ Association Annual Conference and was at a guest speaker. The conference hosts more than 3000 immigration attorneys. In addition, he published an article regarding evidentiary issues in complex asylum litigation, published at the American Immigration Lawyers’ Association Conference.

Attorney Yacub was also a guest speaker at the American Immigration Lawyers’ Association’s Washington DC chapter on the issue of criminal consequences to an immigrant’s legal status. He has received awards from the American Immigration Lawyers’ Association’s Washington, DC chapter for his work as a liaison with the immigration court and at the United States House of Representatives for advocacy in excluding secret evidence in political asylum litigation.

Currently, Attorney Yacub is the sole owner of Yacub Law Office. His work takes him from the immigration courtrooms to the board rooms of business owners who either want to invest in the United States under the EB-5 program, or companies who want to sponsor qualified immigrants to work in the United States.
