My Philosophy

Ever since I was a child, I have been fascinated with the places, people and cultures of the world. When I decided to go to law school, my desire to help people, combined with my world interests, made immigration law the ideal specialty for me.

While I enjoy meeting and working with my clients, I never forget that my clients’ well-being and even their personal safety may depend on the outcome of their cases. For this reason, I work very hard to prepare thoroughly for all filings, interviews and hearings.
