About me

My entire practice is solely focused on immigration law. I have dedicated my last 10 years to providing quality immigration services to individuals, families, and businesses worldwide. My staff and I will skillfully handle every aspect of your casework and take the time to communicate clearly and honestly with you.


Before entering private practice, I began my career as a Clinical Fellow with the University of Texas Law Immigration Clinic. My experience at UT awarded me invaluable training and experience in immigration law that I bring with me to my private practice.
