About me

I am the managing attorney at Abigail Law Firm, PLLC. I graduated from the Univesity of Texas at Austin School of Law and went on to gain valuable experience as a Staff Attorney at an immigration non-profit legal services provider in Dallas, Texas. Later I opened my own private practice. I have worked on hundreds of cases involving citizenship, family-based immigration (consular processing and adjustment), victim-oriented visas (VAWA and U-visas), Deferred Action, and waivers. 


 


I pride myself on offering objective yet compassionate analysis at reasonable prices. I work primarily out of Irving, TX, but am able to take cases from all over the country. English, Spanish, Vietnamese, Arabic, Russian, and Bangla available.
