Former Government Attorney

As a former Government attorney for the U.S. Department of Justice and the U.S. Department of Homeland Security, I learned from the inside what is necessary for case approvals - whether it be for matters before the U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Service, U.S. Consulate and Embassies abroad, or before the U.S. Immigration Courts. This knowledge, along with the experience of prosecuting hundreds of cases, has given me a unique advantage over competitors and ultimately leads to satisfying results for my clients. There is no case that I shy away from, as I have seen the toughest of client matters.

Winning Complex Cases

My success stems from my ability to think like the interviewing officer or opposing Government lawyer and remain three steps ahead of them. My team has been trained on how to prepare client cases and represent clients the same way I always have. Trusted with the U.S. Government as my first client, I ensure, I can be trusted with yours.
