About me

I feel lucky in that I love my work. It is challenging and rewarding. Immigration law is unique in that it is incredibly challenging on many levels. Lawyers are charged with staying up the ever-changing laws, learning about their client's cultures, fighting DHS, and working to obtain benefits for clients with USCIS. The work is rewarding when we win cases, which cannot always happen unfortunately.



In addition to my work with my paying and pro bono clients, I enjoy participating in the immigration attorney and immigrant rights communities by presenting at conferences, writing articles for practitioners on complex issues, and writing advocacy papers with organizations like the National Immigration Project on important issues.

    I have been fortunate to know Carrie Rosenbaum for over eight years and have had the chance to work with her in various capacities, including on casework and within organizations such as the National Lawyers Guild Northern California Chapter’s Immigration Committee. Carrie approaches her work from a place of absolute unwavering integrity. She is exceptionally smart. Anyone fortunate enough to be Carrie’s client can rest assured that she is doing everything absolutely possible and in the best way possible.
