About Waymark Legal

At Waymark Legal, we believe that every step in your immigration journey should be guided by a clear and well-defined path. Our firm's name, "Waymark," holds a special significance that reflects both our mission and the inspiration behind it.


What is a Waymark?

A "waymark" is a point of reference or a guiding symbol that marks a path or route, ensuring travelers stay on course. Just as the yellow arrows on the Camino de Santiago guide pilgrims along their spiritual journey, we, at Waymark Legal, are committed to guiding you through your immigration journey with unwavering clarity, compassion, and expertise.

The Camino Connection

Our founder's personal journey along the Camino de Santiago in Europe and the Caminho da Fé in Brazil, served as the catalyst for the birth of Waymark Legal. During these transformative pilgrimages, she discovered the profound power of waymarks - the bright yellow arrows that illuminated her path. These waymarks not only directed her on the physical route but also served as poignant reminders of her own journey of self-discovery.

As she walked the Camino, she had many realizations about her professional life and the immense impact she could make by helping even more individuals navigate the complex U.S. immigration landscape. This experience became the cornerstone of Waymark Legal's commitment to guiding individuals, families, and businesses through their immigration processes, ensuring they reach their destination with confidence and ease.


Our Mission

At Waymark Legal, we understand that immigration can be a challenging and often uncertain path. Our mission is to be your waymarks, ensuring that you are always moving in the right direction and making informed decisions.
