Welcome to Noha Immigration Law

Proven Expertise.
Individualized Attention.
Compassionate Advocacy.

Noha Immigration Law LLLC is a boutique Honolulu-based immigration law firm that was created to serve the immigration needs of individuals, families, and employers in Hawaii and with ties to the islands. We are the only law firm in Hawaii that is operated by a former Senior Attorney with U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement.


We are intentionally small.  Founder and Managing Attorney Sherry Nohara will work directly with you on your case with mālama (the Hawaiian word for “to care for” or “protect”); we take pride in being approachable, compassionate, and helping our clients rest easier knowing they have an experienced advocate in their corner.


Please have a look around, and let us know if you think we can help you. We look forward to hearing from you!

U.S. Immigration Lawyer with Local Values

In the Bible, noha means “rest” or “a guide”. In the Quran, it means an “ability to think”. We take both definitions to heart.


When you pay your hard-earned dollars to retain us, we consider it our duty to take the worry and fear of confusing immigration procedures off your shoulders. Uncertainty exists in life, and the immigration process is no different. A trusted guide can help. Sherry takes pride in being open and honest with her clients and practicing with integrity. She won’t promise what she knows she cannot deliver. But Sherry will truly listen to you—your concerns and your goals—with empathy and without judgment. She will give you an honest and clear assessment of your case, strategize what she believes the best options are according to your priorities, and walk with you as you navigate the immigration process together with her.


We help individuals, families, and employers. Whether your case is straightforward, complex, or somewhere in between, please reach out to us. We aren’t afraid of the tough cases.
