About me

I am intimately familiar with the immigration process from both the client and attorney perspective. 


I was born and raised in Montreal, Canada and attended college and law school in the United States pursuant to a student visa.  As a young immigration attorney, I married an American citizen processing my own applications for conditional and permanent residence.  Subsequently, I became a naturalized United States citizen.


Since 1992, I have assisted thousands of individuals and companies successfully navigate a complex and rather daunting immigration system.


Never forgetting my experience as an immigrant, my primary focus is providing each client with a clear understanding of the immigration steps that lie ahead as well as a realistic assessment of the results that can be achieved.  Each client expects and is entitled to an honest evaluation.

    I endorse this lawyer. I have known Paul for almost 20 years, ever since I became a lawyer myself. He has vast amount of knowledge and experience in business/work visas, an area that I do not handle. I have referred many people to him, and not one has ever been dissatisfied. He is honest and energetic. You can trust him with your legal matters.
