Immigration Attorney at Immigration Attorney Services



Work category




Profile Activity

Based in Manteca, California, attorney Yehlen Brooks has focused on assisting Central California immigrants for more than a decade. As a solo practitioner, Yehlen Brooks provides foreign workers with effective pathways toward obtaining legal employment in the United States. She coordinates her services with companies looking for skilled professionals and specialists, as well as those willing to sponsor temporary H-1B visas.

Ms. Brooks’ services as an immigration attorney extend to assisting clients in obtaining green cards, defending against deportation and removal, and initiating appeals. She has a particular expertise in representing clients whose residency status is imperiled by recent immigration-law overhauls. In particular, criminal convictions (including drunk driving) can result in harsh immigration rulings in which judicial review is severely limited.

Yehlen Brooks works with an increasing number of immigrants who have been in the United States for more than a decade—often with children who are American citizens—and face sudden deportation. She focuses on providing skilled and aggressive representation before the Board of Immigration Appeals. As an immigration attorney, Ms. Brooks will challenge applications of the law in cases where she feels such actions have been taken unconstitutionally.

Born and raised in the Philippines, Yehlen Brooks achieved the status of Miss Philippines 1978 and undertook numerous modeling and acting jobs as a young adult. Graduating cum laude from the University of the Philippines in Quezon City in 1984, she relocated to the United States to pursue law studies. Ms. Brooks earned her Juris Doctor from the Washburn University School of Law in Topeka, Kansas, where she was a Washburn Law Alumni Association Scholar. Throughout the 1990s, she represented the state government as a Staff Attorney with the Kansas Board of Tax Appeals. Yehlen Brooks has maintained a successful California immigration-attorney practice since 1999.
