James “Jaime” E. Cardona, Esq.

My interest in Law began as a teenager when our family moved to the United States from Colombia, South America. Full adaptation into the American Culture required the learning of a new language. My formal legal training began in the 70's and 80's while attending West Virginia University where I graduated with top honors as a Magna Cum Laude graduate. This training continued into Law School at Cumberland School of Law of Samford University in Birmingham, Alabama in the late 80's. The raising of a young family, however, required me to take some years away of scholastic training. I was fortunate to be able to eventually attain my Law degree at Barry University and my license to practice Law in the State of Florida.

I have assisted in solving many cases and have often participated in court room trials. Notwithstanding, my passion remains in assisting folk achieve their dreams as immigrants seeking Citizenship in this great country, the United States. I clearly remember the day I was sworn in as a U. S. Citizen after having achieved the many requirements to attain such status. That day remains one of my happiest in memory. Even though the road to citizenship is very complicated it is nonetheless fully attainable through available channels. It is in dealing with these channels that I can be of most assistance.

I also practice in the area of Criminal Law. Of recent development is the US CIS Immigration hold and detention of undocumented aliens. This poses a dual responsibility for retained attorneys to cover both the State matter(s) as well as the Federal Immigration issues. Needless to say both of these matters have to be handled delicately in order to fully address a potential deportation action . This is another area of legal services provided by the Cardona Law Firm.

We at the Cardona Law Firm L.L.C. remain fully committed to helping you through the hard times and in correcting mistakes that may often create unfortunate legal consequences.
