About Me

My practice in Edison, New Jersey, is devoted exclusively to immigration law and procedure. Since 1998, I have handled all types of immigration matters ranging from simple applications for citizenship to complex appeals and waivers.  We have been a fixture both in the local community as well as among the immigration bar.  As an attorney, I personally work on all cases and meet with each and every client.
