Maria’s passion for immigration law started at an early age. She knew early on in life that she wanted to be an attorney and advocate for the rights of others. She obtained her associate degree in paralegal studies and began her legal career here at the Law Office of Angela Novas McGill as a legal assistant in 2012.
Angela Novas McGill
Angela Novas McGill is a native of Spain. She attended the University of Madrid. She immigrated to the United States soon after college. While in college she lived and worked for short periods of time in England, Holland, France, Switzerland, and Germany.
If you or someone you love is facing immigration difficulties, has been charged with a crime, or has family law issues which need legal attention, you may find the help you need at the Law Office of Maria Vittoria. Long Beach Attorney Maria Vittoria is certified as an Immigration and Nationality Law Specialist by the State Bar of California. Maria Vittoria and her staff speak fluently in both Spanish and English.
Vittoria and her associates have represented clients in a variety of immigration matters including deportation defense, immigration bond hearings, employment and family based visas green cards, applications for asylum, waivers of inadmissibility , green cards for victims of domestic violence, U visas for victims of certain crimes, and appeals to the Board of Immigration Appeals and to the federal courts. Attorney Maria Vittoria first joined the firm as an attorney in December of 2018 when it was the Law Office of Angela Novas McGill, and is now the managing attorney of The Vittoria Firm. Ms. Vittoria graduated law school with an immigration certificate as a result of an emphasis on immigration related courses.
Ms. Vittoria has represented immigrants in the immigration courts including permanent residents that the US government is trying to deport because they have been convicted of a crime or those that are sent to the immigration court because they are undocumented. Attorney Maria Vittoria appears frequently in the Los Angeles immigration courts and periodically in courts throughout the U.S.
If you or a loved one is being charged with a crime you should look for legal advice as soon as possible. Even more so if you are not a United States citizen as certain criminal convictions that appear to be minor can have grave consequences for an immigrant. Here, at The Vittoria Firm, we have experience with the intersection of criminal and immigration law and, if a client is charged with a crime, we would try to negotiate an immigration neutral offer from the D.A.
If you are an immigrant who has an old conviction you should consult with an experienced criminal and immigration lawyer to assess what consequences, if any, your conviction may have regardless of when it happened. In California there are several vehicles whereby one can go back to the criminal court and obtain relief such as expungements, motions to vacate the conviction or sentence, reduction of felonies to misdemeanors and certificates of rehabilitation.
Ms. Vittoria represents clients in the courts of Los Angeles and Orange counties in all family law matters, including divorce, legal separation, annulments, paternity, temporary orders, custody and child support, spousal support, guardianships, post judgment modifications of existing orders, domestic violence restraining orders and step-parent adoptions.
When you and your family are enduring a difficult family law matter such as divorce, child custody or child support, or an action to establish paternity, it is important for you to have a sturdy shoulder to lean on. Attorney Maria Vittoria has assisted residents of Long Beach and cities in Los Angeles and Orange counties during her career. Whether you are considering getting a divorce or you are in desperate need of a temporary order of protection or an emergency child custody order, Maria is the attorney to call.
