I grew up in a small town in Kansas. Doing so laid the foundation of hard work that guides me even today. After graduating from law school, I worked for a year for a federal Judge in NYC. This gave me the skills and discipline necessary to thrive in the legal world and to successfully navigate legal complexities.
Following that, I worked for an immigration law firm in New York City. There, I was given the opportunity to dive in and handle all aspects of a wide-variety of immigration cases. I also came to know and appreciate more of the many, many countries and cultures that people in the United States come from. After gaining a sufficient level of knowledge and experience, I decided to open my own practice, and ultimately returned back to Kansas where I practice today.
