About Me

Like most of my clients, I was born outside the USA and have personally experienced the complex immigration process firsthand. This personal experience allows me to understand and appreciate the stress, worry, and anxiety my clients face when trying to obtain immigration benefits.


 


I am passionate about the practice of immigration law and am committed to delivering effective, aggresive and competent legal representation.


 


It would be my honor to assist you and your family in this important life changing process.

  • Nancy Elizabeth Ohan

    I wholeheartedly endorse this lawyer. Cecilia knows her stuff when it comes to immigration--I send all my clients with immigration issues to her. She doesn't dabble in immigration--she specializes in it. Her knowledge, attention to detail, and caring about her clients enables her to help people stay here who would otherwise be deported.
