About me

Practicing immigration law is a very personal profession for me.  I was a practicing attorney in my home county in the Philippines from 1996 until I  immigrated to the United States in 2002. I joined Reeves and Associates in 2003 as a paralegal. I  became an Associate Attorney in the Firm’s San Francisco Office when I passed the California bar in 2004. I was promoted in 2007 to a Senior Associate with Supervisor Responsibilities of the San Francisco and Las Vegas offices. I became a partner of the Firm in January 2008 and a named partner in November 2013. I am Certified Specialist in Immigration and Nationality Law by the State Bar of California Board of Legal Specialization.  Having such real-life connections with immigration experience allows me to understand my clients’ concerns and perspective to a personal degree. My many years of experience with all kinds of immigration practice: removal defense, appeals, employment and family- based immigration matters  have provided me with a great deal of knowledge and comfort in representing my clients to an exceptionally high standard.
