We have extensive experience with employment and family based immigration, naturalization, and related matters. Our clients include large and small corporations in a wide variety of industries, academic and research institutions, hospitals, and non-profit organizations. We’ve helped spouses, parents, and children of US citizens or Lawful Permanent Residents obtain green cards based on their familial relationship. Our diverse clientele has included individuals from more than 170 countries representing many thousands of cases.
I’ve made countless presentations before legal, professional, scientific and international student audiences and have often been complimented for presenting complex information and strategies in a clear and concise manner.
In the early years of my practice I taught a class at the Boston Center for Adult Education entitled “How to Obtain a Green Card”. Later, I was invited to join the Faculty at Lesley University as an Adjunct Professor where I developed and taught a Master’s level course in Immigration Law in the Intercultural Relations program.
We strive to provide the highest possible level of client service and I believe that our reputation in the community bears this out.
