Welcome to Rashid Urosevic LLP
Rafeena and Jelena, the founders of Rashid Urosevic LLP – a boutique law firm specializing in immigration and citizenship matters, met in law school. After parting ways for a few years, they met again as colleagues at the Department of Justice Canada, Immigration Law Division.
Rafeena and Jelena have in common that they themselves are immigrants. They have an acute understanding of why individuals and families would uproot themselves from the familiar to seek out a new life in Canada.
They have over 12 combined years of experience defending decisions of the Immigration and Refugee Board, and representing Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada (formerly Citizenship and Immigration Canada) and Canada Border Services Agency, including visa officer decisions (sponsorship, work, study, visit, refugee abroad); humanitarian and compassionate applications; admissibility proceedings; citizenship applications and revocations; pre-removal risk assessment applications; requests to defer removal, motions to stay removal; and refugee claims and appeals. They represented clients before the Federal Court, Federal Court of Appeal, Ontario Provincial Court and Supreme Court of Canada.
Rafeena’s and Jelena’s previous experiences equip them with the knowledge needed to provide you with strategic advice on how to navigate Canada’s intricate immigration system. They are committed to providing the highest quality of service and ensuring their clients’ confidentiality, ongoing consultation and meaningful participation in the preparation of their case.
They would be pleased to meet with you to discuss your immigration and citizenship needs.
