Biography

Shana Velez is a graduate of the University of Arizona James E. Rogers College of Law. Throughout her time in law school, she participated in the Immigration Law Clinic, representing both detained and non-detained individuals in removal proceedings. From there she went on to intern at the Florence Immigrant and Refugee Rights Project where she provided pro bono assistance to detained immigrants. She represented immigrants in bond hearings and assisted FIRRP’s attorneys in giving legal orientation presentations to groups of detained immigrants.

Throughout her career, Ms. Velez has represented non-citizens in a wide variety of cases. She defended primarily immigrants when she was a public defender in Yuma, Arizona, and in her solo practice in Phoenix, Arizona. She also regularly represented immigrants in domestic relations cases that often were complicated by the immigration status of her clients.

Since returning home to Colorado, she has consistently worked closely with immigrants in facing charges in juvenile court, working with immigrants whose children were removed from their care, and now focusing exclusively on immigration law at Joseph & Hall, PC. Her current practice includes family immigration, removal defense, and asylum cases.

In her free time, Ms. Velez spends time with her two daughters, visiting family in Eastern Colorado, and enjoying everything Colorado has to offer.

We Are Open For Business

Effective March 25, 2020, in response to “Stay at Home” orders Joseph & Hall PC is closed to the public and is now conducting nearly all of its operations remotely during the COVID-19 health crisis through April 18th.

We continue to have a limited number of staff in our office to perform basic operations such as assembling and filing petitions, receiving and distributing mail and issuing checks. We are grateful to be in a business that is conducive to remote work and for all of your patience and support.  Our lawyers and paralegals are here to answer the array of questions that continue to arise daily and will keep you informed during these rapidly changing times.  We will hold telephonic or video meetings rather than in-person meetings.  These meetings can be done by SKYPE or Zoom Conference call so that you can continue to interact with your legal team, face-to-face.

We remain committed to delivering outstanding client services.  We do have one important request – please do not come into the office in person for your health and safety and that of our employees.  Please mail or email all documents to our office.  Also, you can make any required payments online at https://vpspay.com/p/3 or make them over the phone by calling 303-297-9171 or by mail.  Please stay healthy!
