About Spanish-Speaking Immigration Attorney Jamahl C. Kersey

Assistance For San Diego.

The Law Office of Jamahl C. Kersey, Esq., represents individuals and families in San Diego with both immigration and criminal defense matters.

For almost 10 years, our founding attorney, Jamahl Kersey, has helped people with work permits, visas and green cards. He has also defended against criminal matters such as 1st degree murder, major drug conspiracy cases, DUI, including defense of those who may be facing deportation.

A Sincere Desire To Help

Mr. Kersey’s desire to help people began during his early childhood. While growing up in a diverse community, he saw firsthand the struggles many families face, particularly immigrant families living in his neighborhood. He saw their fears when they were forced to answer to police. He saw how deportations split up families. Mr. Kersey knew he wanted to help people in similar situations someday, ones who are often unfamiliar with the U.S. legal process and their rights.

He became fluent in Spanish and later earned a college degree. Jamahl later went on to become a successful immigration lawyer and criminal defense advocate.

Today, he utilizes his Spanish degree and knowledge of the law to counsel immigrant families about the system and individuals who are facing criminal charges who are desperately looking for an advocate who knows the law and can help them.
