Elmer Saravia was born in Guatemala City, Guatemala and immigrated to the United States with his parents, brother, and sister when he was 2 years old. Elmer grew up in the Chicago area where his parents taught him about his Guatemalan culture and Spanish.
Elmer received his B.S. in Biology and B.A. in English from Azusa Pacific University. Elmer decided to pursue law because of his experience working at a Workers Compensation law firm in Southern California after college.
Elmer earned his J.D. from the University of New Hampshire Franklin Pierce School of Law. He is admitted to practice law in Massachusetts.
During his first year of law school, Elmer vowed never to practice immigration law, but after gaining Business Immigration experience from Boston-based law firms and working with family and immigrants during events like Citizenship Day, Elmer vowed to practice immigration law and help other people that want to pursue the American Dream, like his parents did for his own family.
“Immigrants want to pursue a legal path to a green card and to eventual citizenship, I want to help my fellow immigrants so they can create themselves in the U.S. like I am.”
Elmer enjoys hanging out with friends and family, learning about his family’s past, and working out.
