Jennifer Wilkens has 16 years of experience in immigration law. She is a Navy veteran and was employed as a legal assistant to a criminal defense attorney, before she joined Hurley Immigration in June 2002 as a paralegal. In 2017 Jennifer became licensed to practice law and is now an immigration attorney. While working full-time and single-handedly raising her autistic son, Jennifer attended college full-time and earned a B.S. in Criminal Justice (Summa Cum Laude) from Colorado Technical University. After Mr. Hurley’s retirement from the practice of law, Jennifer graduated from the University of Denver with a J.D. degree so that she can utilize her 15+ years of experience to continue to provide immigration services to employers and families as an immigration attorney. Her immigration-related areas of experience are family-based petitions, naturalization applications, employment-based non-immigrant visas such as E-2s, E-3s, H-1Bs, L-1s, O-1s, and TNs, and employment-based immigration such as PERMs and I-140 Petitions (EB-1, EB-2, and EB-3). Jennifer is an active member of the Colorado Bar Association, El Paso County Bar Association, and the American Immigration Lawyers Association (AILA). The distinguishing features of her immigration law practice are affordability, accountability, and accessibility, which all add up to value for her clients. Representing clients in immigration law is a delicate procedure, where the slightest errors and seemingly harmless omissions can lead to frustrating delays, if not denials. At Wilkens Law, we take full responsibility to ensure the quality of our work and we hold ourselves accountable to our clients.
