Clarissa M. Kalil

Immigration Attorney

 Clarissa Kalil has dedicated her life to helping entrepreneurs, investors, artists, and victims of abuse navigate the immigration process. Born in the United States, Clarissa Kalil and her immigrant parents moved back to Brazil when she was four years old. Kalil is the third generation attorney on her father’s side. Growing up, she was passionate about justice for as long as she can remember. “I dreamed of living in a world that provided equal opportunities for everyone,” says Kalil. At just 16, Kalil enrolled in law school in Brazil, as the youngest student in her university. She spent 5 years studying and obtaining her degree before spending the next 3 years working as an attorney at a full-service law firm, handling civil, labor, and family law matters.
During her time in law school, Kalil suffered a horrible mistake at the hands of a pharmacy that gave her the wrong medication. She was given medicine containing a double dosage of corticosteroids which caused suppression of her immune system. She ended up in the hospital with sepsis and Acute Respiratory Distress Syndrome (ARDS). She entered into a coma and for several weeks, her failing lungs were kept alive through machines. This experience only strengthened Kalil’s drive for justice and after making a miraculous recovery, she resolved to fulfill her dream of moving back to the United States. Upon completing the bar exam in Brazil, she immediately sued the pharmacy for damages and won the case. A few years later, Kalil returned to the United States as she was determined to obtain her US law degree. While raising a 1 year old and 6 months pregnant with her second, she spent long evenings and weekends studying, never losing sight of her dream.
“I remember that I almost gave up when I found out I was pregnant, at that point I was already accepted at law school. I called the Director of the NUSL program and said that I wouldn’t make it because I was pregnant, and he said: ‘You’ll make it, we’ll give you all the support’… and it worked! It was not easy to reconcile motherhood and law school. But, I never gave up.”
While attending the Northeastern University School of Law, Kalil spent time volunteering at several non-profit organizations, working in immigration clinics, and focused her studies on Immigration law, International Human Rights, and asylum. In 2019, she passed the US bar exam and founded The Law Offices of Clarissa M. Kalil, PLLC. Her law firm is exclusively dedicated to U.S. immigration law. Today, she works with individuals all around the nation, seeking immigration assistance for entrepreneurs, investors (EB5s), Eb1s, EB2 NIW, and EB3 perms. Having witnessed her own parent’s journey to obtain a green card, she is determined to help as many families as possible.
“When my parents lived here they were undocumented, and this was one of the reasons that they decided to return to Brazil,” explains Kalil, “I want every single business owner, artist, and investor in this country who doesn’t have documents to have the opportunity to live and grow their businesses in the U.S.”
According to Kalil, there are multiple avenues to get a green card, but the process is not easy, and working with an experienced Immigration Law attorney can greatly improve your odds.
“It’s a very complex law that has several nuances. When we talk about immigration law, a simple mistake can ruin a person’s life.”
Clarissa Kalil’s immigration law services include family-based green cards, employment-based green cards, investment visas, and green cards, and humanitarian-based green cards. Unlike many other immigration law firms, Kalil’s firm explores a variety of immigration relief options.
“It’s never a one-size-fits-all solution,” says Kalil, “We do our best to help our clients achieve their dream of success in the U.S.”
Kalil is optimistic about the immigration law reforms that Joe Biden and Kamala Harris have initiated.
“However, this is only the beginning, we have a long way to go to fix the mistreatment of immigrants in this country. The philosophy of the Law Offices of Clarissa M. Kalil, PLLC is simple: we evince our commitment to each client by providing a class of legal service that is peerless. I feel very grateful to collaborate with and become part of the American Dream of other people. This is the driving force for me to help and do my best to help all of our clients to obtain their right to live and work in the United States without fear.”
