I served the immigrant community for nearly two decades. I was the first bilingual Immigration attorney in Charleston, South Carolina. I have practiced exclusively immigration law for nearly two decades. I operated a full-service boutique immigration practice for most of my legal career. A graduate of the University of Maryland School of Law, I focused my studies on International Law and Immigration knowing what I wanted to do and who I wanted to serve! I handle Famliy Immigration visas such as Marriage visas, Fiance visas, Parent/Child petitions, Waivers of inadmissibility, Complex Naturalization/Citizenship, Work visas, Business visas and Investment visa matters throughout the Carolinas as well as throughout the United States.
I have studied abroad in England, Scotland, Mexico and Barbados. In preparation for my immigration legal career, I interned for the EOIR-Immigration Court drafting Opinions for an Immigration Judge and also worked for United States Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) formerly INS. I am passionate about immigration law and not only serving the community but also educating them about their rights and forms of relief available.
I am of counsel to other immigration law offices and businesses throughout the United States and periodically serve as an Adjunct law professor. I am fluent in conversational Spanish and love to travel abroad.
I represent clients from many nations such as various countries throughout Africa, Brazil, Europe, Russia, India, Philippines, Mexico, the Middle East, Latin American and the Caribbean (CARICOM) and much more.
