As an attorney I have learned that there are no guarantees in life when it comes to the US immigration service, but I can guarantee the best possible and aggressive representation.
I have practiced immigration law my entire career as an attorney. I have had the opportunity to work and train with some of the best immigration attorneys in the business including a former immigration judge. Additionally, I attended a top notch law school with one of the best international law programs in the country.
I chose this area of law because it was an opportunity to change people's lives. Whether I help someone who made a leap of faith and moved around the world for a job, or married, or needs to defend themselves from deportation I make a profound difference in their future, this is an incredible thing to be able to give to someone and contribute to my community.
