I grew up in a small town in the middle of the United States. 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. In addition, I was fortunate enough to work on cases, including asylum appeals, before U.S. Courts of Appeals.
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, including asylum matters. 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. Doing so gives me the flexibility and control required to achieve the best possible results for my clients and I enjoy working directly with everyone I assist.
