Served in the United States Air Force from 1987-1991. Graduated University of Nevada in 1993.
Earned JD in 1997 and LLM in Labor and Employment Law in 1999. I have been practicing immigration and criminal law since 1999.
My office handles cases in the Western part of the United States such as Los Angeles, San Diego, Phoenix, and San Francisco. We have also worked for people all around the United States such as New York, New jersey, Michigan, and Kansas.
We look forward to working more with people outside of the Las Vegas area.
