About me

I am an attorney with Yankey Law Firm, where I practice Immigration Law. I handle a few other types of cases only as they intersect with your immigration needs.

The outcome of every immigration case is important to me. I love helping clients realize their immigration dreams. Immigration law has been my main area of practice ever since I first began my career as a lawyer.

I know how important immigration is to families, because my own family has been affected by immigration. My grandmother overstayed her visa and my mom and her whole family had to spend months outside the US in order to fix the immigration problems that resulted. Her story had a happy ending, and I work hard for my clients to give them a chance to realize their immigration dreams, too.
