Welcome to the Law Offices of Braden M. Cancilla
About Mr. Cancilla
I am the owner of, and sole attorney at, the Law Offices of Braden M. Cancilla. I have been an attorney since 1989.
My primary areas of practice are immigration law and immigrants' civil rights.
I have a J.D. degree from Loyola Law School. I obtained an M.A. in Latin American Studies from the University of Texas at Austin. I received a B.A. in political science with a certificate in Latin American Studies from the University of Iowa.
From 1989 through approximately 1999, I worked at a non-profit organization providing free immigration services to indigent immigrants including conducting presentations throughout the community on immigration related topics. Between 1999 and 2001, I worked at the National Immigration Law Center (NILC). At NILC, I litigated complex civil rights cases on behalf of low-income immigrants. I also wrote educational materials and trained attorneys throughout the United States regarding immigration law and immigrant eligibility for public benefits. I helped organize coalitions in Massachusetts, Florida, Illinois, Texas and California to protect immigrants' rights. I also supported NILC's lobbying efforts in Washington D.C., and Sacramento, CA.
In 2001, I opened the Law Offices of Braden M. Cancilla. I represent clients in immigration court and on appeal to the Board of Immigration Appeals and the Administration Appeals Office. I also represent clients before the U.S. Department of Homeland Security, U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services, U.S consulates abroad and in the federal district and appellate courts.
I have received numerous awards for outstanding community service. I am fluent in Spanish and English. I have traveled extensively in the United States, Latin America, Canada and Western Europe. I formerly studied in Argentina as an exchange student.
I am a dual citizen of the United States and Canada.
I enjoy working on behalf of people from all over the world. I am availabe to represent immigrants within the United States and abroad.
The goal of the Law Offices of Braden M. Cancilla is to provide quality representation in immigration matters and to defend immigrants' rights. It is an honor to be of assistance.
