I have always focused on Immigration and Nationality Law since I started to practice law in early 2005. I opened my own practice in 2008, and I focus on all aspects of Immigration Law. I have been successful because I work tirelessly to help my clients. My first case, was the case of my father who raised me, and I was able to successfully win his case. After living first hand what so many Immigrant families have to go through, I understand all of the issues and emotions that surround the process and what it takes to be successful.
