Jennifer Borja has assisted clients from over thirty-five countries to obtain their US lawful permanent resident status or their US citizenship. Jennifer represents clients in removal/deportation proceedings and request relief so they may obtain legal status in the US. She is driven to assist clients who have been victims of child abuse and neglect, domestic violence and other felonies to obtain U-visas or Special Immigrant Juvenile Status. Jennifer acquired some of her immigration, as well as corporate, law experience while an associate at a law firm in New York.
Jennifer has assisted clients to get “fresh start" in their finances in bankruptcy proceedings since 2015. She has appeared before numerous US Bankruptcy Trustees and before federal judges in the US Bankruptcy Courts.
Jennifer has a strong background in administrative and criminal law. Prior to establishing the Borja Law firm, she was an associate with a firm focused on employment law and criminal defense of public employees, such as teachers and police officers, for the State of New Jersey. Through this experience, Jennifer has acquired a keen understanding of the potential consequences that criminal charges may bear upon on one’s current or prospective employment, especially in the public sector. Today, Jennifer applies her criminal defense experience to analyze the legal ramifications of the criminal charges faced by her nonimmigrant and immigrant clients to avoid removal/deportation.
Jennifer also has extensive experience in family law, ranging from annulment, contested and uncontested divorce matters, custody/parenting time, spousal support/alimony, child support, and issues involving distribution of marital assets.
