About Attorney Sunita Boddu

Sunita Boddu is a graduate of the University of California, Davis, Law School. She is admitted to the California State Bar.

Sunita has experience in both the public and private sectors. She was an extern for United States District Judge Garland Burrell of the Eastern District of California in Sacramento. She also worked as a research attorney with the Orange County Superior Court, Santa Ana. Her private practice experience includes working at Rutan & Tucker, Orange County's largest law firm.

Sunita attended UC Davis Law School because of its diversity. "I choose (University of California) Davis because the law school is named after Martin Luther King Jr.," she said. "At King Hall there is a deep commitment to social issues such as equality and fairness."

Before attending law school, Sunita was a daily newspaper reporter. She wrote for The Riverside Press-Enterprise and The Home News, East Brunswick, New Jersey. Sunita received a B.A. Journalism from San Diego State University graduating summa cum laude and as the top news-editorial graduate in her class.

Sunita opened her law office in Irvine because of the city's reputation as the Silicon Valley of the Southland and its easy accessibility to the growing population of immigrant families. Within the community, she has served as chair of the Immigration Section of the Orange County Bar Association. While her representation of family law clients is limited to California residents, her representation of immigration clients is open to residents of all states in the U.S. and the world. Immigration is governed by federal law.

Sunita's expertise is providing high quality, efficient and affordable immigration and family law representation to clients. Clients will get big firm results with small firm attention to detail. As a lawyer that has worked with large firms, Sunita is comfortable talking to the government or opposing counsel to protect her clients' interests. On the other hand, her boutique practice ensures that her clients will get individualized attention.

Sunita is a naturalized citizen who immigrated to the United States more than 35 years ago through her father, who studied in Montana State University, Bozeman, as one of the first group of Indian engineers to undertake a master's degree there. Her most recent personal experiences with immigration are through her husband, who is now a naturalized citizen. Her experience with that process put her in the shoes of hundreds of thousands of others with similar immigration experiences. "It is not an easy journey, nor one to be taken lightly," she said.

Ms. Boddu served as chair of the Immigration Section of the Orange County Bar Association in 2019.
