    Liset Lefebvre Martinez is an exceptional attorney who is at the forefront of representation regarding a wide variety of immigration issues, including complex family immigration cases. Ms. LeFebvre presented on a panel with me regarding immigrant waivers at the American Immigration Lawyers Association (AILA) Texas Conference, and I was impressed by her outstanding knowledge and experience regarding waivers in family-based immigration cases.
