SAN JOSE, Calif. - Dec. 17, 2013 - PRLog -- San Jose Immigration Defense Attorney Daniel Shanfield has been recognized as one of the Top 100 Immigration Lawyers in California by the American Society of Legal Advocates (ASLA). ASLA is an invitation-only organization that extends membership to less than 1.5% of all licensed attorneys in the United States, according to the organization’s website. Attorney Shanfield finds it a great privilege to have been chosen for this exclusive honor. The lawyer serves clients through his law firm, The Law Offices of Daniel Shanfield - Immigration Defense, PC.

ASLA aims to recognize the nation’s elite attorneys in various legal practice areas through its Top 100 Lawyers and Top 40 Under 40 listings. In order for a lawyer to be named in one of these listings, he or she must exhibit top-tier professional standards, excellent legal credentials and a strong commitment to involvement in his or her community. Members of ASLA are lawyers who have been determined by their professional peers to be among the most skilled attorneys in their practice areas. The organization accepts nominations for possible members, with those candidates being thoroughly reviewed by a team of ASLA attorneys.

Attorney Shanfield brings valuable insight to his clients’ cases, especially considering the fact that he is a former INS litigation lawyer who was responsible for providing legal counsel to the U.S. government concerning various immigration law matters. The attorney has also served as an adjunct clinical law professor for New York Law School. Some of Mr. Shanfield’s other notable professional experiences include his position as a Legal Services Manager with the United States’ refugee program in Europe and his position as a migration and refugee advisor for the United Nations. He has even previously taken on the role of supervising pro bono legal counsel for the Lawyers Committee for Human Rights (which now goes by the name of Human Rights First).

The San Jose immigration defense attorney has also held leadership positions for multiple professional organizations, and he has been highly active in pro bono work. He provides pro bono services as an asylum law mentor for the Lawyers Committee for Civil Rights in San Francisco, he serves as a member of the Legal Advisory Board for the Stanford Law School Immigrants’ Rights Clinic, and he has been chosen to serve on the Santa Clara County Bar Association’s Pro Bono Immigration Court Panel. After setting up a consular immigration advice clinic that was the first of its kind and a pro bono Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals legal clinic, the Consulate General of Mexico in San Jose gave Attorney Shanfield the 2011 Premio Tequio award.

Due to his extensive experience, Attorney Shanfield is thoroughly prepared to handle even the most challenging immigration cases. He is qualified to represent clients in cases that are heard before the Department of Homeland Security, the Executive Office for Immigration Review, the State Department, the Federal District Court, the Federal Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals and the California Supreme Court. Mr. Shanfield works with a highly talented team of attorneys who are dedicated to helping immigrants protect their futures in the United States. The firm’s legal team provides legal assistance to clients in all parts of California, as well as those who are in other states and other countries.
