Julia A. Cryne is an immigration attorney with the Omaha, NE law offices of Marks Clare & Richards, LLC.

One of the things that makes Julia best suited to support those involved in an immigration lawsuit is her love for meeting and helping people from all over the world. She loves reuniting families, helping them obtain citizenship to be with their loved ones, and supporting them to enjoy a successful life and business. Her tenacious tracking of developments in the law and politics of immigration make keep her legal tools sharp.

Julia has dedicated her legal career to the practice of immigration law. Fluent in Spanish, she has experience working in all types of immigration law, including immigration court defense, immigration case appeals, family based petitions, employment petitions, obtaining residency and citizenship, non-immigrant visas, work permits and international adoption. Julia’s work history includes supporting a university by assisting international students with their visas and immigration needs.

Julia has had some especially proud success stories, including obtaining immediate citizenship for a US Navy veteran from Mexico, obtaining asylum for a man from Kenya in a contested deportation case, and obtaining a National Interest Waiver in an employment petition for a top genetic scientist from Bangladesh.

Driven by customer satisfaction, Julia is prompt to return phone calls, emails, and letters. Believing in “honesty is the best policy,” Julia’s clients can expect the straightforward truth of a situation from her. If she feels the laws are against a case from the very beginning, she will let a person know the legal proceeding outlook during the consult instead of promising results no attorney can guarantee. This quality has been with her since her early childhood, when she first realized her desire to help others was strong.

Julia is passionate about immigration law and serving the immigrant community. Julia is a member of the American Immigration Lawyers Association (“AILA”), and participates in immigration-specific continuing legal education routinely. She volunteers through AILA’s Military Assistance Program to serve military members, veterans and their families with immigration law cases. She regularly speaks in community engagements at churches, schools, businesses and other volunteer groups on immigration rights and options. She is best in her element as the complexity of the case increases, as she pulls her extensive experience to weigh a case in her client’s favor.

Julia Cryne is originally from Omaha, Nebraska, but traveled extensively for her education. She received an Associate’s of Liberal Arts Degree from Cottey College in Missouri (the P.E.O. school for women), a Bachelor’s of Arts with an emphasis in History from the University of Minnesota, Minneapolis, and her Juris Doctorate from the University of Oklahoma. She also studied abroad during her undergraduate at the University of Wales, Bangor, in the United Kingdom. During law school, Julia worked in the school’s legal aid clinic in family law matters, and wrote for the Law Review. Fluent in Spanish, Julia participated in a Spanish language immersion program in Costa Rica. In her free time, she enjoys travelling, horseback riding, and spending time with her family whole family (including dog Foxzer and cat Chloe).

If you’re a shoe lover, you have an instant bond with Julia Cryne. Her friends and family would best describe her as “the lady in the fancy heels.” In heart, Julia is never far from home. Her parents “are important role models to me.” It should come to no great surprise that Julia is an attorney, as her two biggest role models are also attorneys. She also draws strength, wisdom, and zealous advocacy for her clients from Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsberg. To Julia, Justice Ginsberg “broke down barriers for women in the law, and who is an intelligent and feisty person.”
