About Me

Having immigrated to the U.S. in 1978, I have a passion for immigration law and understand what families go through to remain together here in the U.S. I enjoy practicing immigration law and seeing the joy when we are able to keep families together here in the U.S. either through adjustment of status or a relief ordered by an immigration judge.  I also love seeing fiances and spouses enter the U.S. to be with their loved ones.  


Languages Spoken: English, Spanish, Japanese
