About me

We represent both corporate and individual clients in all areas of Immigration Law, with over 15 years of experience. We have expertise in the representation of clients at US Consulates and in the preparation of I-601 Waivers of Inadmissibility. We also have worked extensively with hospitals and healthcare workers for permanent residency, with professionals for H-1B visas, with musicians, religious workers, and entrepreneur investors and employees of trading companies. We also handle removal defense, international adoptions, and small business matters. Recently, we have been preparing a large amount of applications for Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals.
