Matthew I. Khoury

Matthew is a Middle-Eastern American attorney who was born and raised in San Francisco. He started his practice litigating complex commercial matters for businesses, working closely with attorneys having decades of experience. Because of how immigrants are being treated under the Trump Administration, especially immigrants from the Middle East, Matthew now focuses his practice solely on immigration law. He focuses on asylum and deportation defense, though he handles business immigration matters as well.
