Mariam Masumi Daud became Partner and the Principal Attorney of Johnson & Masumi in February 2018. For almost a decade, Ms. Masumi has successfully handled nearly every type of immigration matter for hundreds of clients, including complicated cases relating to naturalization and lawful permanent residence, removal defense, family-based and employment-based cases, asylum, special immigrant juvenile cases, waivers, and petitions for victims of crime and domestic violence. Ms. Masumi has also advocated for our clients in federal district and appeals courts, as well as the appellate courts in the state of Maryland.
Although Ms. Masumi primarily practices immigration, she handles divorce, criminal, and post-conviction relief matters arising in Maryland for our clients on a case-by-case basis.
