About Loftin and Masri, APC
Loftin & Masri, APC draws upon the considerable immigration experience, history of community work, and professional focus on international human rights issues its attorneys possess.
Partners Sarah Loftin and Karima Masri have worked and volunteered extensively in the immigration legal field. Sarah was the supervising immigration attorney for the Employee Rights Center in San Diego and then transitioned to private practice and opened the Law Office of Sarah Loftin.
