About me

I have over fifteen years of experience in the legal industry. I started my career as a corporate lawyer in Russia in the 1990s. When I moved to the U.S. as a refugee, I obtained an LLM degree. Having emigrated myself, I have a personal understanding of the immigration process and the problems that can arise. I have helped over 200 clients with various petitions, applications, visas, etc., including those with highly complex immigration histories, and have successfully represented clients in Immigration Court, federal district and state courts, USCIS, and the Board of Immigration Appeals. My Bar admissions include the State Bar of California, U.S. District Court - Southern District of California, U.S. District Court - Central District of California, and U.S. Patent and Trademark Office.
