Diana Morales McFarland


“As a daughter of immigrants, I can empathize to the struggles and fears that immigrants and their families face.”

Diana’s passion for immigration law is apparent in her strategic representation of those faced with immigration struggles.  For over 10 years, she has provided counsel and representation on immigration issues to businesses, immigrants and their families from all over the world, helping them navigate the ins and outs of various immigration issues.  Diana works in a broad range of immigrant and non-immigrant petitions.  These areas include all facets of family-related and individual immigration ranging from marriage and family-related petitions, DACA, hardship waivers, and asylum to work authorization applications and adjustment of status.  She also provides guidance and training to corporate clients of all sizes on worksite enforcement issues, I-9 employment verification matters, and developing and implementing immigration policies and protocols.

Diana’s practice is limited to immigration law.  She is licensed in Texas and Iowa, and her application to practice law in Nebraska is pending.  Diana is able to represent immigration clients in every jurisdiction of the U.S., handling matters before the U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services, Immigration Court and Board of Immigration Appeals.

Diana has helped educate the public by speaking on a weekly Spanish radio show and presenting at a variety of forums, locally and nationally.  She is fluent in Spanish.

When not working, Diana enjoys spending time with her three, energetic young boys.
