Attorney at Law
For more than 30 years, Bruce Dizengoff has been a licensed attorney specializing in immigration and nationality law. Bruce worked as an immigration attorney for the United States government from 1989 to 2014 before entering private practice.
As part of the Attorney General's Honors Program, Bruce joined the U.S. Department of Justice in 1989. This employment drive aims to find lawyers who have a certain amount of potential, talent, and ability.
Following his 1988 law school graduation from Philadelphia's Temple University School of Law, Bruce joined the Department of Justice, completing a two-year judicial clerkship with the Hon. Samuel L. Supnick of the New Jersey Superior Court. Bruce went on to join the Department of Homeland Security as one of its first employees in 2003, serving there until he returned to private practice in 2014.
Bruce worked for the federal government for many years in a variety of roles, including project manager, attorney supervisor, and federal prosecutor. In addition to appearing before the Board of Immigration Appeals, he represented the government before the United States Immigration Court. He also wrote legal arguments and rebutted administrative motions on behalf of the INS and ICE.
During his time working for the federal government, Bruce also oversaw a team of attorneys and support personnel. In this role, he gave out tasks, kept track of their completion, and developed the office staff. Additionally, he gave legal counsel on personnel issues and acted as management's representative in disputes before the EEOC/MSPB. Additionally, he oversaw the Criminal Alien/Institutional Hearing Program and was in charge of the Employer Sanctions/Civil Document Fraud Program.
Bruce also served as an instructor at the Federal Law Enforcement Training Centers (FLETC) in Artesia, New Mexico, and Glynco, Georgia. He gave lectures on the law pertaining to immigration, search and seizure law, and courtroom testimony. He also provided legal, operational, and policy advice to federal law enforcement officers.
Since making the switch to private practice in 2014, Bruce has enjoyed meeting the needs of immigrant communities in Pennsylvania, New Jersey, and other regions. Among the many immigration services that Bruce provides are family-based immigration, political asylum, naturalization, non-immigrant visas, deportation and removal defense, waivers of inadmissibility, and deferred action.
Bruce is adamant that the fact that the United States is a country of immigrants is the primary reason for our success. Bruce is aware that our nation functions best when each individual is given a chance to contribute in a way that is uniquely their own. We all celebrate the diversity of our enormous country. Bruce takes great pride in using his education and experience to help others realize the American dream.

Office Manager/Head Paralegal
My name is Nieves Hernandez. She was born in Mexico and came to the U.S. when she was five years old. Spanish is her first language, and she began (and continues) to learn English at the age of six.
Nieves has lived and continues to live in "The Blueberry Capital of the World" since she arrived in the U.S. Both of Nieves's parents are hard-working individuals just like herself. She would always help out by taking care of her sister while her parents were working. As a result, her sister has told her that she considers her a third parent.
Nieves grew up working in a blueberry packing house with her father, and she has also worked in the blueberry fields picking blueberries with her mother. She graduated from Hammonton High School in 2016.
She has been and continues to be a DACA (Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals) recipient since 2012 (this has been a life changer). Becoming a "Dreamer" has inspired her to help others the way she has been helped. Coming to work for Bruce and Hunter has allowed her to do this. Being a paralegal for the Law Offices of Dizengoff and Yost has been and continues to be a wonderful experience.
