About Me

I am passionate about the work that I do within the various diaspora populations residing in the United States.  When I represent clients, I am pursuing my belief in justice for all, no matter where one happens to be born.  I am motivated by the fact that I help keep families together, ensure that clients who faced past persecution do not have to return to unsafe situations, and assist small and medium businesses, the backbone of the American economy, to hire the kind of talent pool that will make them successful. I enjoy working with persons from diverse cultures and backgrounds because in the end, we are all global citizens.
