Nour Chammas was born in Lebanon to Syrian-Lebanese parents. After residing in several different countries throughout his childhood, Nour finally came to the United States with his family at the age of 9, first living in Rhode Island, and then settling in California. Nour grew up in the Central Valley of California, where he finished High School. Nour subsequently attended undergraduate school at the University of California, San Diego, obtaining a B.A. in Political Science and a minor in Biology. Nour then went to law school at Thomas Jefferson School of Law in San Diego, where he graduated Cum Laude.
As an immigrant himself, Nour experienced first-hand how difficult it was to become a Legal Permanent Resident in the United States. He saw his parents struggle as immigrants, with his father working in construction, and his mother assuming the role of homemaker, and later obtaining her teaching credentials and teaching French and Math in high school. Nour thus became passionate about immigration law with a strong desire to offer help to immigrant families that would have to go through the same struggles his family did.
Nour has worked as an immigration attorney in Ohio, Michigan, and California. He provided free immigration legal services to low-income members of the community while working at the Arab Resource and Organizing Center in San Francisco. He has represented clients in immigration court, successfully relieving them from deportation, and has helped clients obtain legal status in the United States in a multitude of different ways. Nour brings with him 9 years of immigration law experience and a passion to ensure that every client is cared for and served based on their unique set of circumstances.
When not working, Nour enjoys spending valuable time with his wife and three children, and partaking in various social and cultural activities. Nour also enjoys playing and watching sports, reading, and listening to music. He greatly values family life and is especially fond of family get-togethers.
Nour is a member in good standing of the State Bar of California. He is also a member of the American Immigration Lawyers Association (AILA) and of the American Bar Association (ABA). Nour is fluent in Arabic and conversational in French.
