About Me

When results matter, experience counts.   


I have practiced immigration law for over 35 years and have represented thousands of individuals in immigration matters from family to employment based immigration, green cards, U.S. citizenship and in deportation and removal proceedings. 


Choosing an immigration lawyer to represent you in immigration matters before USCIS or the Immigration Court is an important decision. I understand family unity – I know you want to keep your family together. I understand the needs of small employers seeking to hire foreign national workers. I also understand the needs and time constraints of international businesses seeking to transfer a worker to the U.S.
