About me

I am married to an immigrant and personally went through the immigration process before becoming an immigration attorney. Immigration is all I handle. I am proud of my clients who have become U.S. Citizens and who have fought the U.S. Government and won their cases. I personally believe that the value of living and working legally in the U.S. is worth the cost of investing time and money into your case. I have invested my time and money into my education and experience to effectively represent my clients. If I cannot obtain results, I will tell you immediately. Many lawyers do not do that.

Although our main office is located in the heart of the Nashville, Tennessee entertainment district (near the courts), we have satellite offices in Chattanooga, Knoxville, Memphis and Huntsville, Alabama. Most consultations at the satellite offices are by video-conference. We also meet clients from around the world via. Skype.
