Sasha Westerman-Keuning, Esq.

Rostova Westerman Law Group is a boutique immigration law practice offering personalized service and top-quality legal work.  We specialize in family, marriage/fiance-based immigration, work visas, citizenship, and waiver applications.   


Our law firm was established by attorney Sasha Westerman-Keuning, one of the country's leading immigration lawyers.  Sasha is one of only 80 lawyers who holds the distinction of being a Board Certified Expert in Immigration & Nationality Law by the Florida Bar.  Sasha has practiced immigration law exclusively since 2009 and worked as the Senior Immigration Associate at several of Florida's top immigration law firms before opening her own law practice in 2013.  She has successfully lead Rostova Westerman Law Group for more than a decade. 


Sasha has been named a "Super Lawyers" Rising Star (Florida) for the years 2018-2023, a prestigious designation reserved for less than 2.5% of all Florida lawyers.  She graduated with honors from Boston College and the University of Miami School of Law.  She applies years of experience at leading immigration law firms to her law practice, providing innovative legal solutions to even the most complex immigration cases.  


Rostova Westerman Law Group handles a wide variety of immigration matters from consultation to completion, including family-based and employment-based non-immigrant and immigrant visas with a specialization in marriage and fiance cases, EB-5 investor green cards, LGBTQ immigrationcriminal and fraud waivers, appeals, federal court litigation, and naturalizations among other immigration services.


Our clients include individuals as well as U.S. and multinational corporations and businesses that employ foreign nationals on a temporary and permanent basis in the United States.  We represent couples, professionals, entrepreneurs, artists, entertainers and athletes seeking either temporary or permanent residence.  We offer knowledgeable, professional and personal service to each and every one of our clients.  


Sasha works remotely and represents businesses, individuals and couples all across the United States with a focus on the Southeast (Florida, Georgia, South Carolina, North Carolina).  The law firm maintains a physical office in Clayton, GA to serve clients locally throughout North Georgia and the Western parts of South and North Carolina.  Our office works virtually so we can serve clients in all 50 states and across the globe.  As  immigration law is entirely federal, attorneys are allowed to practice and represent clients in all 50 states. 


We understand that you can choose to do the immigration process on your own. What we offer is expert advice, personalized service, and the highest quality of work.   We utilize more than 15 years of experience with a specialization in marriage and fiance visas, especially for the LGBTQ community, to create successful legal strategies before USCIS.  We answer questions that Google cannot.  We review your individual circumstances and implement the best case strategy for your particular needs as immigration is not a one-size-fits-all.  


Why Choose Us?  Sasha is a Board Certified Immigration attorney who excelled in the competitive South Florida immigration market for 15 years.  She now lives a peaceful life in the beautiful Blue Ridge Mountains and is able to represent clients in a greatly underserved community.  She frequently travels for USCIS interviews and court appearances in Florida and across the country, especially for LGBTQ couples who are seeking the best representation in the U.S.


Sasha provides direct attorney review, supervision and preparation in every case matter at our firm.  This is your life and you shouldn't gamble with it.  It is important to know that your case will be handled and reviewed by an expert.  Sasha provides honest assessments as to your probability of success and will steer you away from immigration scams and promises of status that are likely to fail.  We make the immigration process as smooth as possible as even the smallest mistakes can lead to a case denial.  


At Rostova Westerman Law Group, we believe in the efficient use of technology to increase productivity, ease communication and expedite the filing process.  However, we also recognize the limitations of technology and the frustrations that can come with engaging with ChatBots and AI.  At our law firm, we promise that all communication and correspondence is with a human touch.  


Board Certified Attorney Sasha Westerman-Keuning specializes in marriage and fiance visa processing for couples all across the United States and the world.  She is known for her ability to obtain approvals in complicated marriage-based immigration cases, including approvals after Notices of Intent to Deny (NOIDs) and I-751 divorce waiver cases.  Her favorite case matters are helping couples be together in the United States!


Sasha is a national expert in marriage and fiance immigration and LGBTQ immigration law.  She has been a powerful advocate for LGBTQ+, immigrant and women’s rights for more than two decades.  Due to her expertise and reputation, she has served as the Chair of the LGBTQ Affairs Committee for the South Florida chapter of the American Immigration Lawyers Association in multiple years, most recently in 2023.

She is proud to be a pioneer in the field of LGBTQI+ immigration law, having represented the first same-sex couples who obtained approvals of their K-1 fiancé visas at the U.S. Embassy in Bogota, Colombia and Amman, Jordan and representing the first gay couple to obtain an I-130 approval in the United States.  She is one of the most experienced immigration attorneys in the U.S. in the field of LGBTQ immigration, having worked with nearly a thousand same-sex couples since the repeal of DOMA in June 2013. She has also successfully won asylum claims for lesbian, gay, and transgender individuals in immigration court.  Sasha is an active member of the American Immigration Lawyers Association, serving on a national committee, and has been featured on CNN en Espanol and quoted in the Miami Herald due to her recognized expertise in the field of immigration law.   She also serves on the Board of Directors of the International Friendship Center, a non-profit organization serving the immigrant population of Western North Carolina.
