About me

This is 2010 and I have been practicing US immigration law since 1973,

37 years.

I have written a book, lecture on immigration law and write articles.

I have had over 5-6000 cases I estimate, in most all areas of the practice.

I have former clients come back to me for help even after 30 years!

My son has joined me in this practice which says alot about it, in my opinion.


I enjoy what I do and solving problems that my client have. I enjoy winning asylum cases and National Interest Waivers alike.

I enjoy helping clients and know that it affects their family and future generations as well.
