About me

I’m an immigration lawyer applying skills in management, and client service to expand business revenue, negotiate contracts, litigate successfully, and lead staff in meeting goals and pleasing clients. In applying my skills in international immigration, global mobility, and business leadership I am able to…

-- Execute growth initiatives,

-- Anticipate, pinpoint, and resolve problems, and

-- Communicate with clients and stakeholders via spoken and written forms for positive outcomes.


As an immigration attorney and business director I control operations to achieve targets on time and on budget, reduce costs and expenses, and foster cooperation so staff quickly achieve company goals.


I also offer strengths in…

-- Directing projects to successful completion in the roles of both team leader and participatory member

-- Collaborating with colleagues and staff to create a results driven, team oriented environment

-- Generating and maintaining successful networks and mutually-beneficial relationships

-- Championing core processes for optimal outcomes and efficiencies

-- Meeting challenges head-on to resolve problems quickly


I have earned recognition in the form of the Top Indiana Attorney award from Super Lawyers magazine (2011), the Clients’ Choice Award (2015), and the Top Contributor Award (2015). And my fluency in Spanish and proficiency in Portuguese make me a valuable asset in most business environments.

Professional misconduct

This lawyer was disciplined by a state licensing authority.

  1. Stayed suspension/probation
    issued in IN, 2013


    Stayed suspension/probation means an attorney did something wrong but may still practice law. This type of suspension means the attorney has been suspended, but that the suspension is placed on hold (and ultimately removed) if the attorney complies with certain requirements. In this case the State also monitors the lawyer's activities for a period of time in hopes that he or she will not repeat the behavior.
