Overview

Romina Gomez is an Associate with the Firm’s Philadelphia office and works with both corporate and individual clients on a wide range of business and family-based immigration matters.

Romina has worked in immigration law for over fifteen years, first as an immigration paralegal before law school and as an attorney since passing the bar. As a child of monolingual immigrant parents, Romina learned to become an advocate for those trying to navigate unfamiliar and often confusing systems and agencies. She now uses these advocacy skills to guide corporate clients in their efforts to hire and retain quality individuals from the initial consultation to throughout the green card process.  

Prior to joining Klasko Immigration Law Partners, Romina had her own practice based in Philadelphia and provided legal services to corporate clients and individuals on a variety of nonimmigrant and immigrant options, including applications for E, H-1B, TN, L-1, labor certifications, and immigrant petitions. She also has experience with marriage and family-based immigration, naturalization, and humanitarian visas, including VAWA applications for abused spouses and U visas for victims of crimes.

Romina received her Bachelor of Arts degree in Mathematics from Bryn Mawr College and earned her J.D. from Temple University, Beasley School of Law. While at Temple University, she was co-chair of the university’s chapter of the Immigration Project of the National Lawyers Guild, interned with the Central American Resource Center in Washington, D.C., and HIAS Pennsylvania in Philadelphia.

She is currently admitted to practice law in Pennsylvania and is an active member of the American Immigration Lawyers Association.
