Claimed Lawyer Profile

I consult with noncitizens, their families and counsel to determine the best course of action to avoid the serious consequences a criminal history may have on immigration status. My office can either represent noncitizens directly in immigration court and on appeal, or work with already retained immigration counsel.

I also assist criminal counsel to identify safe haven dispositions for those facing criminal charges or seeking post-conviction relief. If post-conviction work in criminal court is necessary, I will work closely with criminal counsel to obtain a satisfactory alternative disposition.

Additionally, I provide a full range of immigration services for noncitizens and their families, including visa applications, adjustment of status, consular processing, relief under the Violence Against Women's Act, naturalization and asylum.

Professional Experience
Law Offices of Norton Tooby
With with the Law Offices of Norton Tooby, I co-authored several books, including N. Tooby & J. Rollin, Criminal Defense of Immigrants (4th Ed. 2007); N. Tooby & J. Rollin, Aggravated Felonies (2d Ed. 2006); and N. Tooby, J. Rollin & J. Foster, Tooby's Crimes of Moral Turpitude (2008). After five years working with Norton Tooby, I am well-practiced at identifying and making arguments why a criminal conviction should not trigger removal, and establishing eligibility for immigration relief. I can also help counsel identify safe haven dispositions for those facing criminal charges or seeking post-conviction relief.
