Biography

I pride myself in providing an honest and compassionate service to everyone who seeks immigration representation. I graduated from Regis College with a Bachelor of Science in Political Science and Criminal Justice. I then earned my Juris Doctor from Massachusetts School of Law.

I was born in Boston, Massachusetts. My passion for immigration law is traced to my parent’s former positions in politics and their constant commitment to the city of Boston’s immigrant communities. Another major reason for my love for immigration was my father’s heroic fled from Cuba to the United States – I compare his resilience to the resilience exemplified by the immigrant communities in Massachusetts. I knew from a very young age that I too would serve the immigrant communities with the same love and compassion.

I have served as an AmeriCorps at the Massachusetts Immigrant and Refugee Advocacy Coalition, one of the leading immigration non-profit organizations in Massachusetts. During my last year of law school, I interned at the Harvard Immigration and Refugee Clinic, where I first-chaired an asylum case as a student-attorney in immigration court, which resulted in a pathway to citizenship for the client.

I am admitted to practice law in the Commonwealth of Massachusetts, and I am a member of the Boston Bar Association, Women’s Bar Association, and the Massachusetts Association of Hispanic Attorneys.

I am always at your reach and committed to all your immigration needs.

Legal Answers
Q. what are the requirements to sponsor my wife, for her eventual citizenship? is is different for her children?
A: Thanks for your question!

The requirements to sponsor your wife vary depending on whether you are looking at completing the adjustment of status process or the consular processing routes.

Other financial documentation includes paystubs, W-2’s or 1099’s (If applicable); Employer verification letter; Income verification letter; and Bank statements to show recent employer statements - to name a few.
Q. Hello, Im over 21 and I was wondering if it’s possible for me to be adopted to get citizenship!
A: Hi,

This would depend on state-specific law and your individual circumstances.

I would suggest you speak to a family law attorney first (depending on where you reside) and later look into any immigration relief you may be eligible for.
Q. My girlfriend and I currently want to get married. She is twice divorced She is an American she can help me to my green
A: Hi - Thank you for your question!

Generally, the asylum process could take years to get to the final stage. If eventually, you do in fact get married, you should maybe consider the marriage-immigration process. However, I would have to ask a few follow-up questions regarding your entry and other inadmissibility screening questions in order to give you a better answer.

I would recommend that you consult with an immigration attorney to get a better sense of your situation and your options.

Hope this helps!
