    Ms. Zadorian has finally been arrested and is facing 36 years in prison. Bail is over $1 million. She is facing 51 counts including theft, forgery and identity theft. The Deputy D.A. handling the case is Dana Aratani at 2135803337 if anyone has any questions or is a victim.

    Re: Victims of Romina Zadorian

    She is a person who does not have a license to practice law, but nonetheless bilked hundreds of people out of millions of dollars by promising that she would do immigration work for them. She did the work, but few if any of her victims actually received any benefits. Because practicing law without a license is illegal in every state, she was charged with a number of criminal offenses. She ran in order to avoid prosecution, but was finally arrested and is in jail now awaiting a final disposition of her case. The DA's office is trying to locate as many of her victims as possible.

    If you know of anyone who was victimized by this woman, you should contact the District Attorney at the number shown. If you have been the victim of someone who is practicing law without a license, you should report them to the police.

    Re: Victims of Romina Zadorian

    I am one of her clients, but I'm affraid to go to authorities and show proofs for her acts.

    won't I be deported if i do that?

    I still have pending debt to immigration for applications she filed for me and bounced the checks after I paid her.

    Any advice on what I should do now?

    Thank you

    Please contact Los Angeles County Deputy District Attorney Dana Aratani at 213-580-3337. This is a state criminal prosecution, not federal. The prosecuting attorney has nothing to do with the federal immigration authorities and most definitely will not turn you over to them. They just want to make this woman pay for her crimes. You will not be deported for cooperating.

    Re: Victims of Romina Zadorian

    If you are in Los Angeles (as most of the victims are), why don't you call Catholic Charities and ask them for assistance. They have helped a number of the other victims.

    At the same time, this should serve as fair warning to people who select notaries, unsupervised paralegals, and other unlicensed individuals as their representatives. In the end, you get what you pay for.

    If you paid with cashier check ask for a copy of the check from the bank, if in the back of the check there is no stamping by the USCIS (which im preety sure there isnt knowing how romina worked) you can file furgery through the bank and get your money back!!!!

    The CIS will adjudicate the cases on their individual merits. There may be some suspicion with respect to the evidence submitted, and some people may get RFEs as a result, but they will not simply deny all cases filed by this woman.

    The State of California has nothing to do with immigration. They are prosecuting this woman for fraud and practicing law without a license. You will have to work on your immigration status separately.

    The Los Angeles District Attorney is handling the prosecution and restitution to victims. They have no connection with the CIS, nor will they tell them anything about your case. It is safe to call the DA about this.

    Re: Victims of Romina Zadorian

    Well.. I would dare to say that most of her clients are also committing fraud and I would dare to say - knowingly. I would also dare to say that although DA doesn't report to CIS, but it would be completely irresponsible for DHS not to follow such cases and not to go after the fraudulent clients as well. Often these "lawyers" charge cash and don't have their names anywhere, so if the client won't testify himself - there is no connection.

    I wonder... is there any "immigrant protection program"? Wouldn't it be wise if DHS be granting some immigration benefits to people who testify against such "lawyers"? Not green card of course, but at least withholding of deportation or at least not giving permanent ban? After all this is how organized crime is dealt with. I think if DHS won't be implementing something similar, people won't testify and these "lawyers" will be getting away with just slap on the wrist.
