  • Mark Jeffrey Shmueli

    I have known Alison Brown since 1998 when she hired me for my first immigration law job after law school. Since that time she has been a close colleague and mentor. There are other lawyers with Alison's extensive experience, but next to none with the knowledge, creativity, drive and most of all compassion for her clients and the law itself.
