About Sarah Loftin
of Loftin and Masri, APC

Sarah was born in 1982 in Portland, Oregon. She has established a firm foundation of advocacy for immigrant rights through her diverse employment and volunteer work.

Sarah graduated from the University of Oregon in 2004 with a dual degree in history and political science. She then began working for the Federal Migrant Education program, a funding plan that provides academic and supportive services to the children of families who migrate to find work in the agricultural industries in the U.S. When Sarah observed the egregious and discriminatory employment practices and general lack of legal rights these migrant families confronted, Sarah decided to volunteer with the Portland, OR office of Legal Aid and then to attend law school.

Throughout law school, Sarah focused her energy on immigration, workers rights, and international issues. In 2007, Sarah spent a semester in Vienna, Austria as a legal intern for the United Nations Office on Drugs and Crime, Anti-Human Trafficking and Smuggling of Migrants Unit. Sarah also worked as a research assistant for Assistant Dean James Cooper, Proyecto ACCESO, and spent two semesters as a legal intern with the Employee Rights Center. Sarah also worked as a law clerk for Gruenberg & Larabee and the Turley Law Firm.

Sarah graduated from California Western School of Law in 2008. She passed the California bar exam and became licensed to practice law in December 2008.

 

In January 2009, Sarah was hired by the Employee Rights Center to help expand the Center's immigration program. From January 2009 to June of 2012, Sarah supervised the immigration legal program, represented clients in diverse immigration matters, and taught community "know your rights" workshops.

In July of 2012 Sarah opened her own solo immigration practice, the Law Office of Sarah Loftin, in City Heights, San Diego. In June 2014 Sarah partnered with immigration attorney Karima Masri to create their firm Loftin & Masri APC, which focuses exclusively on immigration legal matters.

Sarah speaks Spanish fluently as a result of living and studying abroad in Quito, Ecuador and through her work with Spanish-speaking migrant families here in the U.S.

Sarah published an article on employment arbitration agreements in the Trial Bar News, October 2007. She also appeared on the Univision program "Despierta America" to discuss immigration law. Additionally, Sarah served on the board of directors for Asociacion Liderazgo Comunitario and the Continuing Education Foundation. Sarah also provides pro bono assistance to Deferred Action for Childhood Arrival applicants as an attorney volunteer for the San Diego Dreamer's Assistance Network.

Sarah is in good standing and licensed to practice law in California, before the Federal District Court, Southern District of California, and the United States Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit.

How We Have Helped Others

Client

Hillsboro, Oregon

Sarah Loftin assisted my family from start to finish of the DACA application for my wife through applying for, and ultimately receiving her lawful permanent resident status. During this process Sarah was very thorough, helpful, and always available for any questions or concerns that arose. She was upfront about the costs, and never charged us more than what was quoted for the processes she helped us through. Additionally, she was clear on the timelines, and never made us expect something would happen sooner than it did.

If you want an honest, hardworking, dedicated, and thorough immigration attorney, we would highly recommend Sarah Loftin of Loftin & Masri, APC.

Client

From: United Kingdom

In Dec 2015, I hired Loftin and Masri to help me adjust a conditional green card to an unconditional green card following my divorce. Their work on this case was absolutely brilliant and at a great price too. They explained the process to me which put me at ease straight away. There were two main things I appreciated hugely 1) How quickly they responded to my questions (of which there were many!), something rare in the legal profession and 2) They actually cared about my situation and sympathized with the fact that it can be quite stressful, again rare in the legal industry. I truly cannot recommend them highly enough and I will certainly reach out to them again for any future immigration help I need. Wonderful team!

Client

From: Mexico

Sarah has been a blessing in our lives. Very rarely does anyone encounter a good, caring but also incredibly intelligent and competent attorney. Sarah has demonstrated throughout her years with my partner's Political Asylum case that she will go through any length and avenue to defend her clients. I have personally witnessed her determination, passion and compassion for her client's well-being.

Client

From: Samalia

I would not be where I am today, with my family and friends, without the help of Sarah Loftin. When I got picked up by immigration I was confused, unprepared and didn't know how to deal or handle the situation until I contacted Sarah. After she took my case, Sarah went back to criminal court for post conviction to modify my sentence so I could keep my green card. I am very grateful.

Immigration Workshops
and Community Outreach

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.
