About Me

Immigration Attorney - 18 years in practice

Take advantage of the FREE consultation to see why "experience" matters.


I handle complex family based immigration cases involving waivers of grounds of inadmissibility for unlawful presence (I-601), prior removal orders (I-212), allegations of fraud/misrepresentation (INA 212(i)) and prior criminal acts (INA 212(h)), as well as difficult Adjustment of Status cases.   I also have experience with U-Visas, removal of conditions (I-751) and litigating immigration cases before the Court (Cancellation of Removal, Bond and Detention issues and Asylum). If you are in pursuit  of a non-immigrant visa such as an E, H, L, P or O visa, or have had a case denied, I am available to help.  I also have a great deal of experience representing University Professors and Researchers, Athletes and persons of Extraordinary Ability pursue their green cards.  Please email me ( to setup a free consultation with regard to any of the above.
