Attorney Profile

Attorney Richard J. Tasoff is the senior partner at the Encino law firm of Tasoff & Tasoff, PC. At the Southern California firm, Mr. Tasoff focuses his practice entirely on immigration law. While he offers a wide range of legal services to clients with immigration-related needs, he focuses primarily on assisting businesses in Los Angeles County, Ventura Couty, and throughout the Antelope Valley, San Fernando Valley, and West Los Angeles with bringing foreign-born talent to the United States. In addition, he helps countless couples each year by guiding foreign fiancé(e)s through the visa application process and obtaining resident status for foreign born spouses.

Mr. Tasoff began his legal career in 1982 after earning his law degree from University of Southern California Gould School of Law and his admission to The State Bar of California. In addition to his approval to practice in all of California's state courts, the U.S. District Court for the Central District of California, the U.S. Court of Appeals for the 9th Circuit and the U.S. Supreme Court have all also issued their approvals for him to practice in their courtrooms.

Thanks to Mr. Tasoff's focus on immigration law, he has earned recognition as a leader in that area of the law from the legal community. The State Bar of California Board of Legal Specialization recognizes him as a certified specialist in the area of immigration and nationality law, and he has received an AV-Preeminent peer review rating* from Martindale-Hubbell. In addition, The Best Lawyers in America has included him on its list of the nation's top attorneys.
