I have practiced Immigration law in Portland since 1977. I speak Spanish but my clients are from all over the world. I have taken on cases in all areas of Immigration law including family and employment-based applications, waivers of inadmissbility, naturalization and citizenship, defense of people in removal proceedings at the trial and appellate level as well as applicants for asylum.
In 2006, I received the Gerald H. Robinson Excellence in Immigration Advocacy Award from the Oregon Chapter of the American Immigration Lawyers Assocation.
I am listed in Oregon Super Lawyers ® for 2012, 2014 and 2014.
