Makan Mashhour (“Maken”) is a US immigration attorney and a Canadian immigration consultant at Mashhour and Associates. He provides services in most areas of the Canadian and the U.S. immigration laws, with a focus on the business immigration side of the law. Maken understands the complexities of processing bureaucracy of Citizenship and Immigration Canada (CIC), and U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS), which allows him to protect his clients’ legal rights while their immigration status is being processed through the immigration system.
When he finds time, Maken works on his charity GoodKarma where he reaches out to the less fortunate residents of Vancouver. He also enjoys volunteering at the immigration clinics where he helps different applicants with their CIC applications.
Maken completed his Bachelor’s degree at University of British Columbia. Then he proceeded with completing his Immigration Consultant diploma at Ashton College. From there, to expand his immigration practice, he moved to the USA where he completed his Juris Doctor degree. While attending law school, Maken moved to the UK and attended Oxford University as a law student to complete part of his law degree there. Maken is now a member of the Washington State Bar Association, and the Immigration Consultants of Canada Regulatory Council.
