    I have had the pleasure of knowing Lea for well over a decade. We were at the same firm for a few years in the early 2000's and have continued to discuss immigration issues after we both relocated. Lea is an excellent attorney. She has a great combination of both legal skill and ability to relate well with clients. She is also extremely dedicated. I would not hesitate to refer anyone with immigration issues in Alaska to her.
