Summary

For many years I served as a federal prosecutor, an attorney supervisor and a project manager, working for the U.S. Departments of Justice (INS) and Homeland Security (ICE). Now I am pleased to serve the needs of the immigrant communities in Pennsylvania, New Jersey and beyond. I offer a broad range of immigration services, including family-based immigration, naturalization, deportation and removal defense, political asylum, waivers of inadmissibility, non-immigrant visas and deferred action. I believe that the United States has achieved its greatness, first and foremost, because we are a nation of immigrants. Our country is at its best when each person makes his or her own unique contribution, and together we celebrate the diversity of our great nation. I am proud to be able to use my background and training to help enable people to achieve the American dream.
