About me

I recognize how immigration can be a powerful tool to make a difference in someone’s life. It offers people second chances, it brings families together.

In the past years I have practiced a variety of areas of law, including Immigration, Workers Compensation, Bankruptcy, and Tax. Immigration is something that is personal to me and it has always drawn me back in. Being only one of the few American immigration attorneys who are able to speak both English and Bahasa Indonesia fluently have also placed me in a unique position in serving the immigrants community in the United States. I maintain connections with lawyers and notaries in Indonesia and am able to utilize this connection if necessary to help a client’s case.
