Norma Obergh has been providing immigration legal services for the San Fernando Valley for the past 30 years. She is passionate about serving the immigrant community and helping all immigrants on their path to citizenship.
Her services include family visa petitions, adjustment of status applications, consular visa processing, naturalization services, Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA), and others. In addition to that, she is a strong supporter of comprehensive immigration reform. She seeks changes in immigration policy that provides a path to citizenship for undocumented persons in the country, preserves family unity, provides legal paths to citizenship for low-skill immigrant workers, restores due process protections to immigration enforcement policies, and addresses the root causes of migration, such as persecution and economic disparity. She thrives on assisting clients navigate complicated immigration laws successfully.
Growing up in the San Fernando Valley, Norma has always held the belief that one should give back to his or her community. She gives back by helping immigrants in need become citizens of the United States.
Norma’s passion for helping immigrants along the path to citizenship is unabated. Living in a large city like Los Angeles, Norma understands and appreciates the rich value immigrants from all parts of the world add to any community. She also has seen what the complexity of the immigration process can do to families. Norma knows that U.S. citizenship may mean the difference between reuniting with family, pursuing stable employment and seeking a better future in the U.S., or not. She understands the hurdles that many face in becoming U.S. citizens and she shows her compassion in her practice. She provides affordable legal services and voluntarily gives free immigration advice to those in need. During her many years serving the community, Norma has helped hundreds of people become U.S. citizens.
Not only does Norma believe that all immigrants should be able to become legal U.S. citizens, but she also believes that with citizenship comes a sense of community and duty. For many years, she hosted a polling station at her place of business as a way to encourage new citizens to participate in the political process. As much as people avoid it, Norma always encourages people to serve their jury duty when it comes up.
When she is not dedicating her time to immigrants in her community, Norma enjoys getting out into the fresh air. She’s hiked all over the United States — from her own Granada Hills backyard to Big Bear, Mammoth, and even Joshua Tree and beyond. On her more adventurous outings, she even kayaks around California. She is passionate about environmental justice and its effects on her community. She believes in providing affordable housing to all and supports the efforts to convert garages into ADUs to provide more housing to Angelinos. Norma also is a follower of the eco-friendly gardening movement, pushing for more native plants in gardens and grey water systems watering those gardens as a way to combat climate change on a local level.
