Our Firm


Immigration Law

Our attitude toward immigration reflects our faith in the American ideal. We have always believed it possible to for men and women who start at the bottom to rise as far as their talent and energy allow. Neither race nor place of birth should affect their chances.

- Robert Kennedy

The Law Offices of Johanna Herrero was established by founder, Johanna Herrero, and is a Boston-based immigration law firm with a nation-wide practice, focusing primarily on removal defense, naturalization, and family-based immigration. The firm practices in family and probate court and state criminal court to the extent required for immigration representation at the Executive Office for Immigration Review. 

Attorneys at the Law Offices of Johanna Herrero practice solely in immigration law and emphasize the importance of an efficient and results-oriented approach to representation and client services. Because this is our only area of practice, you will receive the highest level expertise, attention, and experience in immigration law, from our three full time Immigration attorneys. 

Our passion for immigration law and strong reputation as a removal defense immigration law firm is a testament to our constant monitoring of the ever-changing and evolving field of immigration law and our focus on the specific needs and individualized assessment we provide to all our clients. We have extensive experience with a wide array of immigration agencies: from filings with the United States Immigration and Citizenship Services, advocacy before the Executive Office for Immigration Review, and assistance with navigating interactions with Immigration and Customs Enforcement and the Department of Homeland Security. 

We are dedicated to providing individualized attention and open communication with our clients. We aim to respond to all our clients' inquiries within 24 hours. Our 24 Hour Emergency Hotline makes available to our detained clients the services of our Immigration attorneys immediately. We specialize in Immigration Detention and visit ICE Detainees in Massachusetts, Rhode Island, New Hampshire, Miami, Connecticut and Florida.

Our firm focuses exclusively on immigration law matters. We comprise a team of four attorneys, experienced paralegals, law clerks, and several support and administrative staff. The firm was established by founder and managing partner Johanna Herrero. The firm now possesses a strong national client base, with a major focus on the Boston and Miami area. 

The firm handles a large detained and non-detained calendar before the Executive Office for Immigration Review.  Additionally, our firm handles cases before the United States Citizenship and Immigration Services, Board of Immigration Appeals, Juvenile Courts and certain Criminal Courts.

We provide competitive fees and handle many of our cases based on a flat-rate fee structure, rather than billing by hourly rates. We do not engage the traditional billable hours system and are open to negotiating pro brono options for the most indigent clients. 

We know immigration law impacts families. No case is too big or too small.

Pro Bono

It is the spirit and not the form of law that keeps justice alive. 

- Chief Justice Earl Warren

The Law Offices of Johanna Herrero provides substantial pro bono and public service work for its many detained and non-detained clients. Critical to the firm's identity, founder Johanna Herrero encourages the firm, its attorneys, and staff to provide meaningful representation to even the most difficult criminal immigration cases. From assisting families in the reunification process, to obtaining safe haven for the most endangered asylees, to winning relief and release for the wrongly convicted or deported, the law office provides pro bono legal advice and representation to those who most need it.

Through partnerships with local Boston-based non-profit organizations and other law reform institutes, the Law Offices of Johanna Herrero helps the most impoverished of individuals. At our firm, pro bono is not simply a suggestion, it is a highly encouraged mission and ongoing commitment. The pro bono department values this work equally for the purposes of associate reviews and performance.
