About me

My goal is to provide outstanding immigration legal services at affordable prices.  I have practiced exclusively in immigration law since 2005 and opened my own firm in December 2015 in the central coast town of Los Osos, California.  I specialize in family based immigration, waivers of inadmisability, U visas, and asylum.
