    I endorse this lawyer. I work as staff attorney at a nonprofit that provides information and representation in employment and health discrimination cases. When clients have parallel immigration issues, I often refer them to Chelsea. She is intelligent, compassionate, and competent and clients love her. I highly recommend her.
