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 represent clients in removal before the Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit, the BIA and immigration courts. I file family based (marriage, fiancé, I-751), employment based (H-1B, H-3, TN, R-1, L-1, PERM), and investment based petitions (E-2), as well as naturalization, DACA, F-1 reinstatement, visas based on extraordinary abilities (O-1, NIW and EB-1A), athlete visas (P-1), I-360 Victim of Violence Visas (VAWA) and asylum cases. I prepare the clients for their marriage first or second (fraud) interviews, I-751 and citizenship interviews and attend the interview with them. I also deal with complex motions to reopen as well as I-601A and 212(d)(3) waivers.
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 am a motivational speaker. I enjoy swimming, biking, and dancing. I regularly serve food to the homeless. I also love spending time with my friends and family.
