About Me


Hi there, here are the basics… I absolutely love my job as an immigration attorney. My mission is to provide my clients with a safe space of honest and thorough legal counsel. I also pride myself in bringing a personal touch to my law practice. I to immigrated to the U.S. as a child with my family, and I credit the honest and kind hearted attorneys who helped my family successfully navigate our immigration issues, as one of my inspirations to provide the same quality of service within my practice. I’ve experienced firsthand the stressors of an immigration status in limbo, and nothing can beat the peace of mind that comes from dealing with a good immigration attorney that you know you can trust! I want to provide nothing less for my clients.
