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.

Similarly, Karima worked for various immigration non-profit organizations and was recognized by California Western School of Law for her outstanding pro bono legal work.

Sarah and Karima worked for the Human Trafficking and Migrant Smuggling Section of the United Nations headquarters in Vienna, Austria.

Given Sarah and Karima's similar backgrounds and shared passion for immigration law they decided to create Loftin & Masri, APC in June 2014.

Under their new partnership Sarah and Karima continue to be dedicated to community building by improving access to the law regardless of immigration status. Loftin & Masri, APC teaches workshops in a variety of settings on topics including: how to obtain legal immigration status, how to assert constitutional rights if detained by immigration authorities, and updates on proposed immigration reform.

Immigration Workshops

Loftin and Masri, APC is committed to community education and outreach. We understand that immigration law is complex and it is difficult to find clear, honest information about the immigration legal process. Many people without stable legal status face stress and insecurity on a daily basis and do not know what to do if immigration authorities or the police stop them. Accordingly, we offer comprehensive "KNOW YOUR RIGHTS" bilingual workshops to prepare people for these complex situations.

Our workshops focus on the following topics:

What you should do if immigration authorities or the police stop you. What are your constitutional rights? How should you respond to questions? What if immigration authorities come to your home or your work? How do you request a court hearing or bond?

How to locate a family member detained by immigration authorities.

What forms of relief are available to halt a deportation if you have lived in the U.S. for a significant period of time, have U.S. citizen family members, have a fear of returning to your home country, or have been a victim of a serious crime.

The most common options for getting a work permit, becoming a lawful permanent resident (green card holder), or becoming a U.S. citizen.
