I graduated Magna Cum Laude from the University of Illinois College of Law in 2008 where I was fortunate to have attended on a full scholarship. After law school, I represented immigrants and others as an attorney for children and victims of domestic violence before opening my own practice.
I am a member of the American Immigration Lawyers Association (AILA), and am active in AILA's Santa Clara Valley (SCV) Chapter. I currently serve on the Executive Committee for the SCV Chapter and as the Chapter Co-Coordinator of the American Immigration Council's 16th Annual Celebrate America Creative Writing Contest.
I am committed to my community. I volunteer at pro bono legal clinics every month and also serve as a mentor through Big Brothers Big Sisters and as a Court Appointed Special Advocate for foster children.
Please note that my endorsements and client reviews do not guarantee that I have experience or expertise in any specific area.
