About me

I immigrated to the US along with my parents and sister from South Korea.  I have been both an entrepreneur and an attorney and use my extensive experience in running a global business with clients in Asia, Europe and the United States as CEO to counsel my clients on business immigration matters.  Understanding the goals, challenges and pitfalls of doing business in the US and globally, helps me connect to my clients as I advise them on both corporate and personal immigration matters.


I am also a big civic booster and serve on numerous boards and commissions as an appointee or volunteer.  I believe firmly in giving back to the community and being personally involved in making our community a better and more welcoming place for all.
