Representing clients in family-based immigration & citizenship matters. Free consultations offered.
I really love my job. I am able to spend each day helping honest Coloradans gain freedom from crushing debt, and all the stress that comes with it, or guiding my clients through the maze of immigration laws and regulations to lawful immigration status or citizenship. It's a joy to find such meaning in your work.
As a practicing attorney since 2007, I've been fortunate to have helped my clients navigate through over 2,000 chapter 7 or 13 bankruptcies, and fought for settlements for many clients who were unlawfully harassed to pay a discharged debt after they filed for bankruptcy relief. I've also helped obtain employment- and family-based immigration and citizenship benefits for scores of clients. I'm also proud to have taught at legal education seminars on various issues, from chapter 13 practice, to immigration-related employer sanctions, to law firm management.
I’m not a Colorado native, but like they say I got here as fast as I could! I graduated from CU-Boulder with a Bachelor’s in Religious Studies and Anthropology, and received my J.D. from the University of Houston Law Center. After graduating law school, my family – Brooke, Soren and Amelia – and I moved back to the Denver area, where I practiced immigration law with Ann Allott and bankruptcy law with Sharon Grossenbach before opening my own firm.
When I’m not working, I enjoy spending time with my wonderful family (the 2- and 4-legged varieties), running, finding (and drinking) great Colorado beer, cheering on the Broncos & Rockies, and reading biographies of each U.S. president.
