I am an immigration attorney with over 14 years of experience representing both individuals and corporate clients in US immigration law matters. As an immigrant myself, I understand the importance of making the process smooth and efficient for foreign nationals and their families. I believe the key to successful outcomes is not only a thorough understanding of immigration law and procedures, but also a close, collaborative relationship with clients.
