About me

I am the Managing Partner of the San Diego, California office of Fragomen, Del Rey, Bernsen & Lowey LLP.  I have practiced exclusively in the field of corporate immigration and nationality law for over 21 years.  I have been involved in international law since the mid-1980s and have handled a variety of matters pertaining to various aspects of law across the borders.  I lectured in Corporate Law abroad and have testified as an expert on foreign law in the United States District Court.  I manage immigration programs on behalf of multinational corporations and counsel them on all matters of U.S. immigration law and nationality law, regulation, policy and compliance.


My practice includes:


-      Representing world-leaders in the global telecommunications industry, managing their nonimmigrant and PERM programs, and providing guidance and counseling relating to immigration policy decisions.

-       Assisting a top scientific research institution in obtaining permanent residence for its scientists on the basis of Extraordinary Ability and/or Outstanding Research.
