Danish Shahbaz is the son of a Mexican mother and a Pakistani father. Being raised in an immigrant household exposed him to the plight of the immigrant in the United States. “Getting your papers” means a lot to immigrants. To be able to be the conduit by which an immigrant is able to have legal status and be able to live a more comfortable life gives him great satisfaction.
He currently represents clients in removal proceedings, before the Board of Immigration Appeals and in the 9th Circuit Court of Appeals.
Danish Shahbaz obtained his Bachelor’s in Arts from University of California, Irvine in 2007. He received his Juris Doctor from Southwestern Law School in 2012. He is also a founding partner of Sparks & Shahbaz, P.C. in 2014. Danish Shahbaz is fluent in both English and Spanish.
Julie Sparks is a board certified specialist in immigration and nationality law. After more than a decade of practice in this field, she has represented immigrants from more than 70 different countries.
A passion for aiding individuals from around the world led Julie to give up a teaching career and pursue a law degree. The seed of this passion was planted when Julie met a Rwandan refugee in the 90’s through her work in a homeless shelter in Waco, Texas. Her love for this area of law remains to this day. Clients and potential clients often tell her that she is the first person to show true concern for their case and the first to help them thoroughly understand the complexities of the legal issues they face.
