About Me

I practice immigration law exclusively. Green cards, citizenship, visas, asylum, and removal defense are among the top areas of my immigration practice. I have helped many people obtain immigration benefits such as lawful permanent residency either through family-based or employment-based petitions, or through immigration court proceedings.
