My entire career has been dedicated to defense of the criminally accused. Throughout my career, I was required to regularly address my clients' immigration concerns. To better serve my clients, I decided to expand my criminal defense practice to formally include immigration advocacy.
First and foremost, I am a trial attorney, which means you can take comfort in knowing that if you have to go to trial to safeguard your rights, you are in good hands. I will zealously represent you. And, unlike many criminal attorneys whose practices are limited to state courts, much of my practice involves defending clients in US District Court.
I have represented clients accused of virtually all types of crimes - from homicide, three strikes, federal drug charges, sex offenses, to misdemeanors and juvenile court matters.
Furthermore, we offer representation in all manner of immigration concerns: family-based petitions, deportation defense, asylum, prosecutorial discretion, and much more.
