About Me

I have exclusively practiced immigration law for the past 15 years. We have a very high success rate in all immigration matters that we have handled over the past decade, including political asylum cases, criminal removal proceedings, family and business immigration petitions, and numerous other very complex cases, including motions to reopen deportation orders and appeals to the Board of Immigration Appeals and U.S. Appellate Courts throughout the United States. I have a great team of paralegals and associates who speak English, Armenian, Spanish, and Russian fluently.


Languages Spoken: Armenian, Russian, English, Spanish, Tagalog
