American Immigration Attorneys Miami, PLLC (“AIA MIA”), was incorporated and established by Maria Posada-Ricci in 2017. AIA MIA was a spin-off of the already established immigration firm: American Immigration Attorneys, PLLC, located in Bunnell, Florida—where Maria first began her legal career.
Although the firms are separate and independent in many aspects, the experts working in both offices collaborate on many cases. With more than 50 years of combined immigration experience, both firms provide clients solutions for all U.S. Immigration Matters.
Our motto: “We Can Help!”
Maria Posada-Ricci was born in Venezuela, and came to the U.S. at an early age. Being raised in a family of attorneys, and judge, she was introduced to legal service early-on. She developed a passion and interest specifically for Immigration Law at a very young age; mirroring her father, sister, and brother-in-law.
In 2016, Maria moved south to Miami, Florida. During her time in Miami, her very Employment-Based legal experience expanded to include other complex cases and processes. In 2016, Maria represented individuals with complex cases involving unlawful entries, unlawful presence, prior deportations, and crimes.
Maria left employment and branched-out to create her own firm because she saw a demand; a demand she says for honest and thoughtful legal service.
It is AIA MIA's goal to provide clients unprecedented service. Service that includes transparency, excellent communication, and realistic expectations.
