About Me

 


Both through personal and professional experience I understand the the confusion, complexity and stress that comes with moving to a new country to live.   My partner and I have both lived and traveled throughout England, Scotland, Ireland, Wales, Austalia, India, the Carribean Islands, Mexico, Egypt and throughout the United States. 


 


Our firm would love to help you make your move to the United States.  Let one of our experienced staff assist you and your family.


 


I was admitted to practice law in 2006 and have since then worked in both the Arizona courts as well as in England for a top Legal 500 firm.  As a prosecutor I gained valuable litigation experience, as a managing partner in private practice I have worked extensively with clients to achieve the best results on their case and as a volunteer in various community programs I have been fortunate to share my knowledge to help others in need.
