About Me

My practice spans across business, family, asylum, and removal defense in the field of U.S. immigration and nationality law. I have helped companies across various industries to bring in skilled workers in various worker visa categories. I have counseled and represented business clients in federal courts regarding worksite and I-9 compliance issues and ICE enforcement matters. I have worked with universities to secure non-immigrant specialty visas and immigrant visas for their professors and academic researchers. I also have several years of experience in family based immigration and asylum matters, have successfully represented clients in affirmative and defensive asylum proceedings, and I have a track record of providing very effective defense to clients in deportation and removal proceedings. I have represented individual clients in removal proceedings before the EOIR, the BIA, and the federal court.
