Attorney | Florida & California
Sarah Mian, Esq.
Attorney Sarah Mian’s interest in immigration law stems from world travel, personal experience and as a child of immigrants. She grew up in Japan and lived there for 16 years before moving to the United States. After graduating magna cum laude from Santa Clara University in California with a degree in Political Science and a minor in History, Attorney Mian went on to earn her Juris Doctor with Honors from Concord Law School now part of Purdue University Global.

Besides speaking English, Ms. Mian is also speaks and comprehends Urdu, Hindi, and Punjabi as well as conversational Japanese, enabling her to serve many people who would otherwise have difficulties in communicating their legal needs. She has traveled the world and lived in three countries.
She interned for The Katharine & George Alexander Community Law Center in San Jose before becoming a member of the State Bar of California. There, she gained exposure to a diverse array of legal circumstances, including immigration related cases, gaining crucial experience that led her to the decision to practice immigration and nationality law before the U.S. government. Subsequently, Attorney Mian passed the Florida Bar and became a member of the State Bar of Florida.
Due to the federal nature of her immigration practice, she is able to work with and advocate for clients from anywhere in the United States and around the world.

My Personal Message
Having a heart of an immigrant, I understand my clients as if their story is mine. Every immigrant goes through the pain of leaving one’s own country looking for a better or distinct future for themselves and their children.
The countries of their birth are imprinted in their hearts be it through their outlook of life, their parents, relatives, or merely with the way they look. Immigrating is exciting, confusing, conflicted, but also harmonious. Immigrants go through a combination of a flood of emotions in accepting and owning the country they decide to spend their lives in. After all, we all have one life to live.
Most of the time it’s easy to stay behind but yet the immigrants seek and discover that maybe there’s something more out here in the United States for them. I respect that courage to seek and I respect the resolution of conflicts that immigrants pass through. Most importantly, I understand. I have traveled the world and lived in three countries. The United States is what I chose proudly for she accepted me with open arms.
Therefore, I respect my clients’ choice to be here and to contribute. With that attitude I understand and then I advocate. Thank you for considering me for your important immigration needs. I know that sometimes it is a matter of life and death even though it may not seem so to any other.
