About me

Jeanne primarily focuses her practice on immigration law.  Jeanne has personal experience with applying for benefits through the former INS- now U.S. Citizenship & Immigration Services.  She understands the angst that foreign clients feel when faced with an unfamiliar and confusing set of laws.  Jeanne's goal is to make the law accessible to her clients and to make the process as seamless as possible.
