Talia D. Burnett


Talia Drake is currently an associate attorney handling family-based and employment-based immigration matters. She is admitted to the State Bar of California, the Supreme Court of California, the U.S. District Court for the Central District of California and the Eastern District Court of California. Talia is a member of the American Bar Association, Los Angeles Bar Association, Long Beach Bar Association, and Orange County Bar Association.

Talia graduated Cum Laude from California State University, Long Beach with a bachelors degree in Philosophy and an emphasis in Ethics. She earned her Juris Doctorate degree from Chapman University School of Law in Orange, California. While at Chapman, she studied immigration and refugee law, gaining comprehensive knowledge of the complex immigration system. She was also Vice President of the Federalist Society and three time CALI award recipient.

Talia has extensive experience with family-based immigration and naturalization applications as well as employment-based transactional immigrant and non-immigrant visas. Her experience includes prepping and accompanying clients to INS for Adjustment of Status interviews and Naturalization interviews. She also has experience with asylum, waivers of inadmissibility, removal proceedings, motions to the Board of Immigration Appeals, and Labor Certification applications to the Department of Labor.

In addition to her work with employment based applications for Aliens of Extraordinary Ability, PERM Labor Certifications, and visas for professionals and skilled workers, Talia specializes in family-based immigration. She has been working with Wilner & O'Reilly since 2010 and has extensive experience representing clients at USCIS offices in Los Angeles, Orange and San Diego counties. While Talia enjoys all aspects of her work, accompanying clients at their immigration interviews is by far her favorite. She has now assisted hundreds of clients in obtaining permanent residency and citizenship.

Talia is a long-time resident of Long Beach, California and is a proud member of the Junior League of Long Beach, Women Lawyers of Long Beach and Long Beach Barristers. For fun, Talia is a member of the 4th Street Pool League of Long Beach and enjoys surfing, rock climbing and yoga. She volunteers her time as a scholarship judge for Desert Cities Distinguished Young Women and is the stage director for Los Angeles County's Distinguished Young Women program. Talia also provides voluntary counsel for the Human Options Clinic assisting victims of domestic violence.
