About me

I immigrated to the US as a refugee and through my own immigrant experiences and formal education, I have gained invaluable personal and professional insight about the American legal system.

Coming from a life of strife and conflict, I  learned to appreciate the importance of law and justice which provided the foundation for my desire to study law and defend human rights.  

To date, I have successfully handled thousands of files and am familiar with many immigration and superior court judges and practitioners throughout southern California.  I take pride in the fact that I and my team of lawyers are well versed in our respective areas of the law, and that we are constantly up to date with the latest changes made to the case law, codes and rules in our respective areas of practice.

For several years, I hosted an informational TV show which was broadcasted globally and viewed by millions. My show covered all aspects of law but focused on American immigration issues.

As a result, I gained a very growing following and clientele base which forced me to spend more time in the courtroom or administrative hearing offices (such as asylum offices) and did not leave me much time to contribute towards the show, which I hope to resume sometime in the near future.  Suffice it to say that dedicating all those hours answering and discussing thousands of legal issues has been highly mutually beneficial to me as well as my clients.  However, I am humble enough to acknowledge and appreciate the infinite volume of questions and issues in law, particularly in the complex realm of immigration law, which still awaits for me and which I am so eager and enthusiastic to tackle

I am fluent in Farsi, Dari and Pashto, and I have basic knowledge of Spanish, German and Chinese.
