About Me

I am an attorney represting multinational companies, U.S. based-startups, and entrepreneurs, and family members of foreign relatives seeking to obtain immigration benefits.


 


My passion for immigration stems from my own personal circumstances. Like many, my grandparents immigrated to the U.S. around the turn of the last century from the Southern Mediterranean. But beyond that, I personally sponsored my spouse years ago, which allowed me to directly experience the process (and its uncertainties, ambiguities, etc.). That experience made me decide to dedicate my professional life to assiting others immigrate to the U.S.
