Lisa E. Battan

  • Of Counsel


I am a third generation Colorado native. Although I have not strayed far from home, I have a lifelong interest in learning about people from other places and other cultures.

Licensed to practice law in 1994, I work exclusively in the area of immigration law. I am active in the American Immigration Lawyers Association (AILA) and served as Chair of the Colorado Chapter of AILA. I also served on the Board of Governors of AILA, and as a member of the family immigration committee. I am also a Past President of the Colorado Bar Association's Immigration Section.

I feel greatly rewarded by my work in immigration law. I have a tremendous opportunity to meet extraordinary people from all over the world. It is truly rewarding to help people overcome the hurdles of our immigration laws in order to live their lives and fulfill their goals and dreams in the United States. Personal contact with my clients and responding to their individual needs has become the hallmark of my practice.

In addition to my work in immigration law, I have also taught and danced Argentine Tango. I have been fortunate to join my passion for tango with my work. I secure visas for most of the world’s best tango dancers and musicians who come to work in the U.S.

I also practice yoga and meditation, ride and compete my horses in the sport of dressage, listen to music from other countries, walk my dog and try to enjoy special moments with my beautiful daughter and family.
