Express Immigration Assistance, LLC was founded in 2010 by Maria Yirdaw. Maria was born in Ethiopia grew up in the United States. She is a graduate of Virginia Commonwealth University who then went on to work for two law firms before venturing to establish her own business: Buonassissi, Henning & Lash, P.C, and Cleary Gottlieb Steen & Hamilton LLP. Our office successfully processes over hundreds of immigration cases each year and we provide a highly result driven approach to each case that we accept. Maria believes the key to the company's success stems from her Christian values that instills the love of helping others and the will to go above and beyond to insure proper processing of client's cases. Maria and her family came to the United States as Refugees from Ethiopia more than 25 years ago and have seen the challenges that are faced by immigrant families. The highest level of investment she makes in each of her cases is the ability to relive her experience through her clients - activating the sense of urgency and empathy.
