About Me

I specialize in helping clients through the green card process when a U.S. citizen marries someone who has come to the U.S. legally as a visitor, student, or with a work visa. I also handle U.S. and Irish citizenship cases. In addition, I prepare E-3s, H-1Bs, and H-3B visas. I write a monthly column on Immigration Law.

She is always the first to offer selfless advice and has helped me tremendously on many cases. I highly recommend her and fully endorse her.
