Matt Anderson is a graduate of the University of St. Thomas School of Law (Minneapolis, MN) and Wheaton College (Wheaton, IL). He is licensed to practice law by the Supreme Court of Minnesota, and his law practice has focused solely on immigration law since 2007.
Prior to law school, Matt gained experience with international adoptions at Children’s Home Society and Family Services (CHSFS) of St. Paul, MN, and with Kids Alive International, working at an orphanage in Lima, Peru.
Matt is fluent in Spanish and as an immigration attorney he specializes in family-based immigration, employment-based immigration for religious workers, and naturalization applications. He has worked with many couples throughout the United States and worldwide seeking immigration benefits based on marriage, churches and mission organizations seeking to sponsor employees for R-1 visas, and individuals seeking naturalization (U.S. citizenship), including 319(b) naturalization for missionaries. Matt has also handled complex legal research issues, related to obscure claims of U.S. Citizenship, J-1 visa waivers, I-601 waivers of inadmissibility, and the intersection of criminal law with US immigration law.
Matt and his family currently live in Lima, Peru, where Matt is available to provide assistance with the U.S. immigration process to individuals located in Peru and around the world.
