About this event

Christina Corbaci is an immigration attorney with her own firm, Corbaci Law, P.C., in Woburn, Massachusetts (www.corbacilaw.com). Her practice focuses on representation of immigrants and their family members in matters including removal defense before the Immigration Courts, detention and bond, asylum and humanitarian-based visas, family-based green-card and consular visa applications, appellate litigation, and investor visa petitions.

Christina grew up in Seattle, Washington; Madrid, Spain; and London, England. She graduated from Brigham Young University with a degree in International Relations (Law and Diplomacy) and Spanish Studies in 2002. She then served as a missionary for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints in the Greece Athens Mission from 2002 to 2003. Christina graduated from Benjamin N. Cardozo School of Law, Yeshiva University, in New York City in 2007. During her time in law school she interned with Catholic Charities’ immigration unit in NYC; the Hebrew Immigrant Aid Society in Vienna, Austria assisting Iranian religious minorities apply for U.S. refugee status; and a human rights organization in Lima, Peru that worked with victims of the Shining Path political conflict. Christina moved to Boston to start her law career and has since made Massachusetts her home. She spent eight years as an attorney at Joyce & Associates in Boston and then launched her own law practice in 2015. She is an active member of the American Immigration Lawyer's Association (AILA) and just finished her first semester teaching a course on immigration law at Tufts University. She also enjoys engaging with community organizations and often speaks at local events. Christina speaks fluent Spanish, is actively learning Turkish, and is conversant in Greek, Portuguese, and French.

Christina met her husband, Mustafa, in Boston. He is a native of Turkey, so they often spend time in the beautiful Black Sea region or with Mustafa's many extended family members in the Boston area. They are also involved with a local Islamic community center through Mustafa's family members. They have two little boys together, Atlas and Mateo, who love shredding paper for her in the office and role-playing scenes of her getting people out of "jail" and convincing the judge to grant her client's case. Christina and her family are currently members of the Arlington Ward in the Cambridge, Massachusetts Stake.
