I am an Immigration Attorney with over 10 years of experience, focusing on Business/Employment Immigration. I have represented multinational companies in the automotive, cement, oil, biotechnology and marketing industries as well as many other industries. I also represent smaller start-up companies in various industries. I represent individuals in family-based immigration processes and U.S Citizenship as well. I am fluent in English and Portuguese and proficient in French and Spanish. I am able to provide simultaneous or consecutive interpretation as well as translation services for our clients.
My firm provides legal services in all areas, which allows me to work in conjunction with our attorneys in other practice areas (corporate, labor and employment, tax, litigation, etc.), when appropriate, to provide comprehensive legal services that take into account various aspects of doing business in the U.S. and managing a multinational workforce.
