Taleen DeArcangelis, Of Counsel

After working for Frances for more than eight years in Los Angeles—first as a legal assistant, then as a lawyer–Taleen DeArcangelis moved to San Francisco and established her own practice in the Bay Area with her husband, Martin DeArcangelis.

Although she has relocated, Taleen continues her affiliation with HaydenLaw by handling some of our most specialized cases including most of HaydenLaw’s filings with USCIS, especially preparation of our O-1 extraordinary ability petitions and immigrant petitions under various categories. HaydenLaw is grateful for our continued collaboration with attorney DeArcangelis and we look forward to maintaining a long and mutually beneficial relationship with her.

Taleen was Frances’ first assistant. They worked together while Taleen finished her education and graduated from the School of Law at Pepperdine University. She passed the California bar exam in 2006. Besides her legal skills, Taleen speaks Armenian, as well as some French and Turkish. She has traveled to Armenia to help with education of children. She also authored the American Immigration Lawyer’s Association (AILA) Visa Processing Guide Chapter on visa processing at the United States Embassy in Yerevan.
