A strong addition to Hedayati Law Group P.C., Attorney Sylvia L. Ayass, Esq. joined our team September 2014. She is no newcomer to the legal scene, however, as her notable career actually began in Los Angeles in 2009, where she made her name as an intelligent civil rights attorney working for a leading law firm. She quickly discovered that she wanted to help the individual overcome some of life's most difficult situations, and her focus shifted to immigration law. In the course of her career as an immigration lawyer in New York, she has helped Fortune 500 companies and some of the biggest names in fashion obtain visas. Also, some of her clients are Michelin Star rated restaurants and include many of the best names in hospitality. Attorney Ayass represents clients in a variety of immigration cases, with a focus on employment based immigration, including business, investment and artist visas. In light of recent political events, she has also become determined to provide unwavering advocacy to members of the LGBTQ+ community.
Even though Sylvia Ayass, Esq. speaks Spanish as her native language, she does not let potential language barriers stop her from giving people the powerful representation they need and deserve. She has managed to help people in need who have come from all around the world, including Afghanistan, Bangladesh, England, Germany, Iran, Kenya, Lebanon, Mexico, People’s Republic of China, Russia, and Somalia.
As important as visas are for the individual who needs one, they are still shrouded in complicated litigation. Ms. Sylvia Ayass, Esq. has been able to successfully assist in the acquisition of business, employment, and investor visas for people and corporate entities alike. In the years of her career, she has helped clients ranging from foreign investors and companies seeking business in the U.S. to "Individuals of Extraordinary Ability."
