About John Barrera

John C. Barrera, founder and lead attorney of Barrera Legal Group, handles both Immigration and Criminal Defense law. Throughout his extensive career, John has achieved numerous acquittals and dismissals in complex criminal cases, including those involving drug trafficking, homicide, theft, and traffic offenses such as DUIs. His prowess extends into the immigration arena, where he has secured countless approvals in challenging removal defense proceedings across various U.S. immigration courts. John's legal victories have kept many families together and successfully navigated clients through employment-based immigration, green card processes, non-immigrant visas, asylum applications, and U-visa applications.

John co-hosts a weekly radio show addressing immigration and criminal questions, reflecting his status as a sought-after attorney in his field. With over twenty years of legal experience, he is licensed to practice in New York and Idaho, as well as before the United States Supreme Court and several U.S. Courts of Appeals. A graduate of Brooklyn Law School with a Juris Doctor and John Jay College of Criminal Justice with a Bachelor's in Criminal Justice, John is fluent in Spanish. His deep roots in the Hispanic community—stemming from his Colombian heritage and life in the diverse Jackson Heights of Queens, New York—fuel his passion for immigration law. He aims to assist immigrants in overcoming the hurdles they face while seeking a prosperous life in the United States.

John's professional affiliations include the American Immigration Lawyers Association (AILA), the National Immigration Project, the Idaho Association of Criminal Defense Lawyers, and the Nassau County Bar Association. He has also served as an AILA chapter liaison to the Office of Immigration Customs Enforcement (ICE).
