About Avenida & Diaz Law Office

Avenida & Diaz Law Office (Avenida Law) formerly known as “Fernando Lagman & Avenida Law Offices” specializes in Philippine  Immigration and General Business Laws.

Robenson D. Avenida supervise the immigration and corporate teams, and the manages the office’s daily operations, while Carlo Artemus V. Diaz focuses on trial and litigation.

Avenida Law has vast experience in visa and work permit application 

Immigration practice is a specialized field. Engaging the unexperienced, or worse “fixers” with cheap rates will cost you and your company time and money in a long run through delayed outcome or even denied visa applications.

Avenida Law understands your needs to put your expats on board at the soonest possible time. As such, with its specialists that have twenty years of experience in visa and work permit application, Avenida Law timely delivers.

More than visa and work permit applications, Avenida Law troubleshoots immigration problems and provide cost effective solutions.

Of course, talk is cheap, so one thing to verify our claim is to try Avenida Law’s immigration services and compare it with your existing service providers. Most of our clients have, and they never look back since.

Run your business and leave the legal problems to us.

Traditional lawyering steps-in when litigation is already in your doorstep. But every company worth its name knows that litigation is expensive and counterproductive.

Avenida Law understands this and try to avoid your company from litigation in the first place. Prevention is better than cure, as they say.


Starting from business registration to actually running your business, Avenida Law will be in every step of the way to meet your company’s success through practical legal advice and opinion on actual or anticipated legal concerns.


Our job is to remove burdens from decision-makers and let them do what they do best – grow the business. Contact us for monthly retainership proposals.
