About me

I have been an immigration lawyer since 1974 in Illinois and California.  From 1990 to the present this is the only area of law I have practiced and taught as an Adjunct professor at the Univeristy of Illinois Law School.  I have been a member of the American Immigration Lawyers Association and served as chair and member of various Committees and on the faculty of the Illinois Continuing Legal Education program for immigration.  I love the challenge of figuring out the best immigration solution for our clients.


I also play tournament bridge.  I recently moved my practice from Illinois to San Diego where I have opened a law firm with my son Jason and other immigration attorneys.
