About Me

I believe that family is at the core of our communities.  In that respect my practice of family law emphasizes respect for the family, protection for children and fair & balanced treatment of individuals.  Without sacrificing zealous client advocacy I strive to find solutions that benefit clients from the start with limited expense. 

We are a community of immigrants and are stronger because of it. I believe our immigration laws should work for us not against us and my office endeavors to find ways to make immigration laws most effective for our clients.

Specialties: Dissolutions, OFPs, Ante-Nuptial Agreements, Family & Employment-based Immigration, Removal Proceedings.
