About me

I solely practice Immigration law in California's Inland Empire.  Since beginning my practice we have helped thousands of families and individuals enter or remain in the United States legally.  I love helping my clients!


Prior to private practice, I achieved the rank of captain in the U.S. army's Judge Advocate General's Corps (JAG) during the Iraq War.  Prior to departing military service I was awarded the meritorious Service Medal.


I have worked as an appointed Part Time Military Magistrate and also as a Special Assistant U.S. Attorney.  I am currently an active member of the bar of the Kansas Supreme Court, the federal 9th Circuit Court of Appeals,and the United States Supreme Court.
