Whether you are an employer seeking guidelines for hiring a workforce or an immigrant seeking naturalization to the United States, you can benefit from our attorneys’ cutting-edge training in immigration law. Attorney Christian Hansen, member of the American Immigration Lawyers Association (AILA), recently attended a two-day AILA conference in Boston. The conference covered non-immigrant visas, employment-based immigrant visas, family-based immigrant visas, naturalization and citizenship, removal and relief, and more. Mr. Hansen is fluent in Spanish and is excited to provide services to the area.

Margarita Mendiola recently joined Hillyard, Anderson & Olsen as Mr. Hansen’s legal assistant. Margarita is a native Spanish speaker, who is highly involved with the Hispanic community in Cache Valley. She previously served as the administrator for the Plaza Comunitaria in Hyrum, which is an educational facility that provides the training necessary to adapt to life in the United States. Margarita currently works as an instructor with Plaza Comunitaria, volunteers as a 4-H leader, and serves as a liaison between the local Hispanic community and the Mexican Consulate.

Mr. Hansen and Mrs. Mendiola are dedicated to helping HAO clients determine if they qualify for legal status in the United States. All consultations are private and intended to promote eventual U.S. citizenship.
