About Me

I was born in Istanbul, Turkey of Armenian descent.  I immigrated to the United States in 1974, at the time just 4 months old.  I knew, from early in my legal training that I would be an immigration attorney.  In fact, it is all I specialize in.  Immigration law and more importantly, unpublished policy, changes so quickly that if an attorney does not focus their entire practice on immigration law, they will miss something. 


On a personal note, I am married for 11 years and two wonderful boys ages 2 and 4.  I love representing my clients and learning about their cultures, business ventures and industry.
