Omaha Lawyers

Kristin A. Fearnow

A longtime community advocate for immigration reform and immigration, Kristin’s career is dedicated to helping her clients navigate the complex and ever-changing immigration process. Kristin is experienced in complex removal defense, asylum, family petitions, adjustment of status, consular processing, waivers, VAWA, U, and T visas. Fluent in Spanish, Kristin’s knowledge and experience make her the perfect person to lead Dornan Law Team’s Immigration Division.

Kristin is involved in the American Immigration Lawyers Association, serving in a number of leadership positions, including as the chair of the Iowa and Nebraska chapter in 2014-2015. She is currently the Omaha USCIS liaison for the Iowa and Nebraska Chapter. She has also been an invited speaker at a number of local and national immigration law conferences.

Kristin was a founding member of the Board of Directors for National Justice for our Neighbors, serving from 2012 to 2016. She served on the Board of Directors for the Refugee Empowerment Center from 2015 to 2017. She was also an adjunct professor of Immigration Law at the University of Nebraska-Omaha from 2017 to 2019. Recently, Kristin established the Immigration Court Representation Project. The project provides funds for indigent clients to secure legal representation in immigration court, bridging the gap between pro bono services available through the private bar and non profit organizations.

Kristin worked with former Congressman Ashford and Congressman Don Bacon on the Kerrie Orozco Act, a bill that would expand protection to immigrant spouses of first responders killed in the line of duty. The bill is named after Omaha police officer Kerrie Orozco who was killed by a gang member while working; Kristin represented Kerrie’s husband and family members through the process.
