Specializing in U.S. Immigration and Nationality Law
I represent individuals and employers in obtaining visas for employment and residence in the United States. This work involves seeking temporary work visas for professional employees, employment and family based applications for permanent residence (a/k/a green cards) and intra-company transfers from overseas to the United States.
I engage in complex naturalization/citizenship applications involving overseas residences, military service, or a criminal history, removal/deportation defense, and immigration related litigation in the federal courts.
I consult with criminal defense and family law attorneys and advise on the immigration consequences of criminal convictions or divorce.
