Attorney Profile

The founder and lead attorney Paul Soreff of Soreff Weinrich Law, located in Seattle, Washington, concentrates his practice exclusively on immigration law for clients throughout the greater Seattle metropolitan area. Mr. Soreff draws from a rich background that includes extensive experience covering a wide range of immigration matters, including drafting waivers, applications and petitions, handling employment visas and eligibility issues, and other matters pertaining to citizenship and naturalization, work- and family-related visas, removal and asylum.

After earning his Juris Doctor from what is now known as the University of the District of Columbia David A. Clarke School of Law, Mr. Soreff established a firm foundation for his career as the managing partner of a small Louisville, Kentucky, firm from 1976 until 1991. Before relocating to Seattle and establishing Soreff Law in 1999, he headed a private immigration practice in Birmingham, Alabama, and taught at the University of Alabama School of Law as an adjunct professor.

The principal architect of Washington's innovative Citizenship Day, a program in which legal professionals and community members throughout the state provide pro bono assistance to lawful residents seeking citizenship, Mr. Soreff is the recipient of numerous honors, including the Lawyers for Public Justice Trial Lawyer of the Year award, repeated listings in Best Lawyers in America*, and multiple awards honoring his pro bono work from organizations such as the American Bar Association and the American Immigration Lawyers Association. In addition to his present work at his firm, Mr. Soreff testifies as an expert witness in unemployment compensation hearings and formally trains administrative law judges in immigration law, and he is a regular speaker at continuing legal education seminars and events open to the public.
