About me

I help build new families and help keep existing families together. I’m
an immigration attorney and work with clients to bring their spouses,
fiancées, parents, siblings, or children to live with them in the United
States, and also to help family members who are already here to stay
legally. I also work with new parents to finalize the adoptions of
their foreign-born children, and represent children in our state foster
care systems who do not have documentation. I love what I do and get to
learn about new places and cultures everyday.
