About me

I am a native of Northern Virginia, who moved down to Florida over ten years ago to attend law school.  During my time at the Florida State University College of Law I began working for an immigration law firm as a law clerk.  Since that time, I have been working in the field of immigration and international business law.  As a licensed Florida Bar attorney my main focus has been family and employment based immigration.  I also am an avid writer and also serve as an Assistant Professor teaching Western Civilization and Business Law.  I enjoy living in Miami and look forward to building a wonderful life and career in South Florida.
