About Me


My practice focuses on providing holistic and customized immigration solutions to my clients- business, individuals, and families. I represent businesses insecuring Nonimmigrant Visas and U.S. Legal Permanent Residence for their employees. I assist individuals and families in obtaining Permanent Residence, Naturalization, K and F Visas, and in obtaining waivers of inadmissibility. I represent companies in corporate immigration compliance as well. 


I also help employers resolve disputes with their alien employees relating to issues typical of foreign workers. I can draft employment agreements in accordance with State (CA) and Federal Laws to ensure that employers do not enter into disputes at all! 

In addition, I assist  individuals/entities in selecting the best legal structure (LLC, C Corp, S Corp etc.)  for their business and help them incorporate their business.

Summarily, the services that I provide are not limited to immigration, but include related areas of law. I believe that this approach allows me to provide enabling business solutions to my clients. I partner with them in achieving their business objectives, while ensuring the success of their immigration program.
