Managing Attorney

Mariela Sagastume

Ms. Sagastume is ILOLA’s second-ever Managing Attorney. She oversees the work of ILOLA’s staff and attorneys and handles the most complex of ILOLA’s cases personally.

Prior to joining the Immigration Law Office of Los Angeles, P.C., Ms. Sagastume was the founder and owner of Ayuda Law Firm, LLC, a well-respected immigration firm in Denver, Colorado. Her practice focuses on complex investor visas such as E-2 and Eb-5s, PERM cases and L-1s, removal/deportation defense, appeals to the Board of Immigration Appeals, family based visas and humanitarian based petitions. Ms. Sagastume is highly skilled at drafting extensive legal briefs, memoranda and motions for complex cases that deal with a variety of federal and state criminal issues.

Prior to her hire as ILOLA’s Managing Attorney, Ms. Sagastume had the privilege of teaching complex immigration law issues at the University of Denver for five years. During her professional career, Ms. Sagastume has gained not only nationwide legal experience but also international experience. In 2013, she was chosen as a participant in an exclusive delegation in Guatemala through the Guatemalan Human Rights Commission. In 2015, Ms. Sagastume traveled to Asia to work on issues of trafficking and immigration.

Ms. Sagastume understands the challenges of her clients personally . She was born in Guatemala and her family was forced to flee their native country due to persecution suffered at the hands of the Guatemalan government. Her father was eventually successful in seeking refuge in Canada. Because of her own personal experience, Ms. Sagastume has dedicated her career to assisting other immigrants with their legal issues.
