About me

I represent clients in immigration law, family law, criminal defense, and juvenile dependency matters. I clerked for the Multnomah District Attorney's Office while attending Lewis and Clark Law School.

My passion for immigration law comes from living several years abroad and being the son of immigrants, I understand the importance of seeking legal assistance when applying for immigration benefits and realize the nuances in working with different government agencies. I enjoy representing clients from all over the world and from different walks of life.

I believe in providing competent, cost effective legal representation. I am often sought out by former clients to advocate for them again in other areas of the law. I am a Senior Associate at Hillsboro Law Group PC.

Outside of the office, I enjoy the outdoors, spending time with my family, ethnic foods, music and sports.
