About me

My law practice is focused on U.S. immigration law. As an immigrant myself, I moved to the United States and went through the intricacies of the immigration process. I have lived through the delays, complexities, frustrations, and challenges of the immigration process which, I believe, has given me a personal understanding and insight into the immigrant experience.
