I have been an immigration attorney for more than fifteen years. I worked as both a solo practitioner and as an associate with a large law firm of more than 350 attorneys.  I have also been the head of the Immigration Department at several large corporations. I am experienced in virtually all areas of immigration law including business and family immigration, deportation defense and appeals.
