As an immigration attorney in Las Vegas, I am highly motivated to assist my family and employment-based clients to navigate the complicated US immigration laws successfully. It is very meaningful to me to hear “you did a good job.” At the same time, my practice is about delivering excellent service. Client A, for example, an Australian national and an IT manager on an E3 visa came to see me after the USCIS denied his case for a renewal of his E3 status. His business and his children's schooling hung in the balance. Though the US consulate in Melbourne Australia found that Client A fulfilled the degree requirement for an E3 visa, the Department of Homeland Security was not persuaded by the same evidence. The further twist, in this case, came from the fact that Client A had been an employer or self-employed for the past two decades. I was able to diagnose the issue, and quickly we refiled his petition with new evidence that proved that client had the equivalent of a degree by experience and meets all requirements for E3 status. In a few weeks, the Department of Homeland Security approved the case without a hitch. Just five years after becoming a permanent resident Client B, was arrested and charged with 40 counts of theft from his employer. He was convicted on most counts and served six months in jail. His goal was to become a citizen after serving his time, completing probation and going on to live an exemplary life. I was able to assist him to argue that his crimes did not make him deportable. I also successfully argued that even if they did make him deportable, the law does not prevent the Department from approving his citizenship at their discretion. I am a member of the Florida Bar and AILA, the American Immigration Lawyers Association.
