Iran Interest Section Consular Affairs

With years of hands-on experience working with the Iranian-American community, at JFK Law Offices we understand that many Iranian-Americans, while maintaining close ties to their families and their Iranian heritage, may not have traveled back to Iran regularly or may not comfortably read and write Persian. As such, when those individuals look to effectuate transactions in Iran, they often face the daunting task of having to obtain legal documents from the Interests Section of Iran Consular Affairs in Washington D.C. Our firm has a team in place that can help facilitate this process.

Here are some of the areas in which we can assist you:

OFAC & Sanctions Related Matters

JFK Law Offices specializes in assisting clients nationwide to comply with and address issues related to the sanctions programs administered by the Department of Treasury’s Office of Foreign Assets Control (OFAC). More specifically, our practice focuses on assisting Iranian-Americans and Legal Permanent Residents of the United States with the legal and transparent transfer of assets from Iran to the United States and/or obtaining specific licenses from OFAC authorizing otherwise prohibited transactions. Additionally, our firm has successfully defended federally prosecuted clients on issues relating to U.S. trade sanctions, handled OFAC matters arising before the Federal Bureau of Investigations, as well as successfully assisted thousands of clients nationwide with the transfer of assets from Iran to the United States. As such, our practice encompasses the regulatory, enforcement, and criminal aspects of sanctions law.

What sets our firm apart from other firms is our comprehensive understanding of not only U.S. sanctions and banking laws, but also those of the sanctioned country. This critical understanding of the sanctioned country’s culture and regulations allows us to find workable solutions for our clients that can actually be executed in a transparent manner.
