Lead Immigration Attorney
I counsel and assist employers, associations, individuals and families on immigration policy, compliance, visa processing, consular processing, etc. We work to ensure clients get the right visas for their international employees; developpolicies that work well with a multi-national work force and otherwise counsel clients on compliance with our challenging immigration-related laws.
My team and I love what we do – working with employers and interacting with individuals from around the globe makes every day interesting and a growth opportunity. That ernest enjoyment and commitment shines through in our client relationships.
Call me to talk about having a relationship with your Immigration Team that is both expert and meaningful!
