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. My sister i-130 priority date is 10/18/2011. Can a lawyer help to find out the case status? Thank you!
A: Hi - thank you for your question. The case status would depend on who petitioned for your sister and the country. The below links might be helpful for you: 1. 2. Hope this helps! Giselle R.
Q. K1 home situation
A: Hi - Truthfulness in immigration is key. If at the time you submit the 'DS-160: Online Nonimmigrant Visa Application' your fiancé is still living in the same address you refer to above, then that address would suffice. Every case is different and there may be a lot of other important details to consider in your case, so I would strongly recommend speaking to an immigration attorney who has dealt with these types of matters. Best of luck!
Q. Could I face issues while renewing 10yr E19 GC, if I get divorced before 2 yrs of receiving it? I had a 10 yr+ marriage
A: Dear Sunetra, If I understood your question correctly and based on what you have described, because you currently do not have conditional permanent residence (a Green Card valid for 2 years), it is unlikely that you will face problems when applying for green card renewal or applying for U.S. Citizenship. If you had a conditional permanent resident card, that might be a different scenario, but it does not seem like that is the case in your situation. I would recommend setting up a consultation with an immigration attorney to further explore this topic. Hope this helps!
