About me

There are many facets to the immigration laws whether it be reuniting family through the green card and waiver process to defending removal proceedings and attacking the government's evidence.  As well, we enjoy procuring visas for U.S. employers for their foreign national employees and ensuring their I-9's are properly completed.  There's never a dull day in our office with the variety of cases we handle and this makes each day a challenge and one that we embrace and enjoy. 


We've staffed our firm with some fantastic people that come from all walks of life.  Each contributes their own personal experiences and work experiences to our decision making process.  Coupling those perspectives with my experience as a prosecutor, a practicing lawyer and a teacher of immigration law at Cleveland Marshall School of Law gives each of our clients a great advantage.  


Give us a call and let's see if we can't help you, your family or your business through the immigration maze.
