While being a social worker in Gainesville, GA, I developed a passion for the protection of immigrants' rights. I attended California Western School of law in the United States with the sole purpose of becoming an immigration lawyer.
Now I file employment based petitions (H-1B, H-3, TN, R-1), family based petitions (marriage, fiance, I-751) petitions, investment based petitions (E-2), naturalization, F-1 reinstatement, extraordinary abilities visas (O-1) and athlete visas (P-1) as well as I-360 Victim of Violence Visas (VAWA). I prepare the clients for their marriage first or second (fraud) interviews, I-751 and citizenship interviews and then attend the interview with them. I also deal with asylum cases and consular processing.
I was born and raised in France. I earned two Master Degrees in Law; one in France in Public Law and one in the United States in Comparative Law (LL.M). And I am fluent in French, English and Spanish.
In my free time, I enjoy swimming, biking, and dancing. I regularly serve food to the homeless and I am a motivational speaker. I also love spending time with my family.
