As a Seattle immigration lawyer for many years, I bring people together by using successful strategies to unite families and to help employers hire top foreign talent. I also help US citizens and would-be citizens with applications for naturalization or citizenship and passports. I also work with military families. I am a member of the Washington State Bar since 2003 (and the California State Bar since 1984, inactive since 2011). At the start of my career, I had the honor to serve as a legacy INS Trial Attorney. This government experience helps me see cases from two points of view. My firm offers affordable legal services, whether we handle a portion of your case or all of it. I am a tireless advocate for clients because I am passionate about working hard for you so you can achieve your dreams. I provide straightforward, honest and candid analysis of your case, even if nothing can be done or the road will be difficult. You will receive personal service and direct communications from your attorney. I really enjoy being a tireless advocate for fair and just immigration reform legislation, and am actively involved in government liaison, as well as state and federal legislative advocacy. As a former Chair of the American Immigration Lawyers Association (AILA), Washington Chapter for two years, I had the honor and pleasure of managing and leading a terrific immigration specialty bar association. I have also served on the national AILA-USCIS International Operations Liaison Committee and the Military Assistance Project Task Force and the AILA national Business Committee. I am available to speak before your community, trade or professional group.
