About me

I am licensed to practice law in Pennsylvania, The U.S. Third Circuit Court of Appeals, and The U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of Pennsylvania. 


My current law practice includes all aspects of immigration law.  I represent foreign nationals in complex matters before U.S. Department of Justice, Executive Office for Immigration Review, and in Federal Litigation.  I have extensive trial experience as lead counsel before the Executive Office for Immigration Review and the Federal Appellate Courts, including oral argument before the U.S. Third Circuit Court of Appeals.


Aside from litigation and family based immigration, I handle employment based visas for athletes, professionals, artists, and musicians of extraordinary ability and other such specialized employment areas.  We represent individuals who reside all over the United States as well as the world.


I am member of the American Immigration Lawyers Association and serve as its liaison with Immigration and Customs Enforcement's Principal Legal Advisor's Philadelphia Office (Office of the Chief Counsel).
