Kennewick Immigration Attorney

I’m a regular guy with a lot of things to be grateful for. An amazing family, an exciting and rewarding job, a great team to work with, just to name a few. I jumped into the practice of immigration law in 2008 and have never looked back. It’s allowed me to raise a family in one of the greatest places in the world and indulge my interest in all things international.

I’ve been interested in foreign cultures and languages since I was young. In high school, I studied Spanish and German. After graduating, I served a mission for The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints in Mexico City, where I grew to love the Mexican people and the Spanish language. After returning home from my mission, I studied Near Eastern Studies at Brigham Young University. I also dabbled in Arabic, French, Italian, Slovak, and Spanish, and spent time living in Syria and Slovakia.

After graduating magna cum laude, I stayed at Brigham Young University and completed a Master of Public Administration with the intent of beginning a career in the Foreign Service. In the middle of my MPA, I realized I wanted to pursue a career in the law.

I couldn’t bring myself to leave BYU, so once again, I stayed at BYU and studied law at the J. Reuben Clark Law School. I was awarded a Juris doctor degree in 2007, graduating magna cum laude. During my law school studies, I was able to study immigration and spend a summer living in Amman, Jordan while working in international arbitration. While in Jordan, I was often asked if I could help people immigrate to the United States. This experience and others inspired me to seriously consider becoming an immigration lawyer.

I love languages and international travel, but my favorite thing to do is spend time with my wife and children. I also enjoy outdoor activities, swimming, and dancing. My favorite day is Sunday. I love going to church with my family and worshiping and studying the gospel together.

    My name is Elias Correa I want to share that David Jakeman and Beacon immigration were phenomenal. After Several attempts to adjust my status with several other law firms and no results just my money back I got with them for a consultation. David, Richard and Ruby have been awesome from the very beginning and very helpful. David put a plan together that would work for my family with my current situation. I felt like time flew by so fast and everything came out as planned. My case was a little weird because i had came through the immigration check point at the border at a young age. I have no criminal history, have payed all taxes and never got in trouble but because i had no prove that i crossed thru the check point many attorneys would not take my case and scare them away. David explained all the pro and cons and i decided to do it since he was willing to help me and believed i had a good case. I decided to trust him and it was the best decision i have ever made.

    HE GOT ME MY GREEN CARD! I am very happy. My family is happy. We feel secure and have no fear of us been separated in the future and can start planning a head.We can move on with our lives and for that i would recommend anyone to come talk to David and Beacon immigration if you want to get help. I’m sure he is the best and will do everything he can to help you!
