I was born and raised in Brazil. After high school my parents sent me to the US to go to college and, after a couple of years at Atlantic Union College in So. Lancaster, MA, I got married, had a child and eventually decided for business school at Fitchburg State College. Upon graduating with a BS in Business Administration and Economics I enrolled at the Univerity of Massachusetts in Lowell for an MBA. I finished my MBA, worked in mid-level management for several different corporations, owned two restaurants and a trade company.
I experienced first-hand the difficulties of being an immigrant in the US and saw the opportunity to help the portuguese and spanish-speaking community by going to law school and becoming an honest, dedicated and serious advocate of immigration rights and reform.
After working a couple of years in debt collection I opened my office where we work on immigration, criminal law, consumer protection and other diverse areas of need, particularly, for immigrants.
I have written a few articles on immigration reform and the role of immigration in our society, and I am exploring the writing of a book on the economic impact of illegal immigration in our society today.
