About Linda

Learn Linda’s areas of practice.

Practice area

My practice is soley focused on immigration based cases. I have handled a variety of complex cases including but not limited to, citizenship, adjustment of status, extreme hardship waivers and removal defense before immigration court. I also have significant experience representing minors in state court for guardianship or custody petitions as they relate to Special Immigrant Juvenile Status. I previously worked as staff attorney with the nationally recognized non-profit organization, Kids in Need of Defense, KIND. Although I am now in private practice, I continue to support KIND’s efforts as a volunteer pro-bono attorney defending immigrant youth.

I completed my undergraduate studies at the University of California, Merced where I graduated with high honors. Throughout law school, I was honored with several Witkin Awards for academic excellence.  

I am licensed in California and also admitted to practice in the Executive Office for Immigration Review (known as EOIR or immigration court) in all locations across the United States. I am fluent in both English and Spanish.

Caring, understanding and extremely helpful!
Linda was thorough, focused and had an answer for all my questions. After our first meeting, I immediately felt like I had chosen the correct person to represent my father. Linda made me feel confident about the resolution and the aid she could provide. With her help, after several meetings and conversations I am proud to say that my father is officially a United States citizen and we have Linda to thank.

Amazing lawyer!
Linda was an amazing lawyer. She walked us through every single step of the way. She answered every single question we had and let us know how the process would take place. She definitely prepared us and kept our nerves down. Linda took the time to notify us when there were changes or when something came up. She kept us in the loop. I am definitely thankful and happy we went with her.

Consulting a lawyer is scary. Legal situations are stressful but Linda was so helpful, attentive, and caring when it came to my concerns. When it came to my case, she represented me with such a strong sense of conviction. I am so grateful to her and her expertise for helping me win my case. I would highly recommend to anybody who is in need of legal assistance. She's the best choice you can make!
