Attorney Profile

Leah Spivey is based in New Orleans, Louisiana and has an office in Lafayette, Louisiana. She serves clients facing complex legal concerns related to immigration in the New Orleans and Lafayette areas and throughout the United States. She speaks Spanish and Portuguese, and she has committed her legal career to seeking positive results for clients dealing with the following legal concerns:

·         Business immigration

·         Academic immigration

·         Removal defense

·         Asylum and humanitarian immigration

·         Nationality

·         Non-immigrant visas

Ms. Spivey received her undergraduate degree from Tulane University in 2004, and she went on to earn her Juris Doctor from Loyola University New Orleans College of Law in 2009. While in law school, she volunteered as a student practitioner for the immigration law section of the Stuart H. Smith Law Clinic and Center for Social Justice. Before she focused her practice on immigration law starting in 2010, she spent a year as a family law attorney.

An active member of her local legal community, she is a member of the American Immigration Lawyers Association, the Hispanic Chamber of Commerce of Louisiana, and she is co-Chair of the Immigration Section of the New Orleans Bar Association. She has admittance to the Louisiana State Bar Association, the U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of Louisiana, and the Fifth Circuit Court of Appeals.

While she takes cases involving every aspect of immigration law, attorney Spivey remains connected to her roots in family law, emphasizing immigration cases pertaining to removal proceedings, family-based immigration and humanitarian forms of relief. Focused on results and providing compassionate guidance through complex legal channels, Ms. Spivey fights tenaciously for individuals and families seeking to come to the United States for work, education, asylum, research or family reunification.
