About me

I am an experienced, results-oriented attorney who specializes in all aspects of business and investor-related U.S. immigration law. I represent a diverse group of domestic and multinational corporations and their employees, providing both short- and long-term guidance in connection with the hiring, transfer and retention of international personnel worldwide.

I also represent the interests of self-petitioning foreign nationals seeking investment opportunities in the U.S., including E-2 Nonimmigrant Treaty Investors and Immigrant Investors seeking U.S. permanent residence under the EB-5 program.

I also advise foreign nationals on a variety of immigration-related petitions and applications, including outstanding scientific researchers, medical professionals, foreign legal consultants and others with extraordinary ability in the sciences, arts, education, business, or athletics who wish to come to the U.S. to work in their field of expertise. Such efforts include obtaining temporary and permanent visas for artists, fashion models, musicians, chefs, professional athletes and other entertainers.
