This area of law chose me. When I was graduating from law school, there were hardly any attorneys practicing in immigration law in our area of the state. There was a great need for someone willing to specialize in this area. Our business clients needed this expertise as well. They had foreign employees that were in need of job transfers and our world was becoming much more international. Globalization was beginning to take place. My initial years of practicing law in Florida were also conducive to this body of law. It has a diverse workforce with many international cultures that are represented across the state.
I am always providing clients with books, websites, and resources to educate themselves. It makes our jobs easier. Nolo provides excellent materials including web articles and legal books in this area of law.
I am always willing to review documents prepared by clients. This is often in preparation for filing a large or complex application, or in preparation for a U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services interview.
Yes, but because of the complexities of immigration law, I think clients should always seek some kind of legal assistance (even if it is just document review or attendance at U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services interviews).
Our caring attorneys, our genuine staff, and our commitment to success. We are highly selective with our client base, so we can provide only the best, personalized service. We are also a Christian organization and our calling is to our service of others.
I LOVE my job and it is our clients that make my life wonderful! Since my graduation from law school in 2000, I have only practiced in immigration law. Our main offices have been located in Jacksonville, Florida for 14 years.
Our new offices in Marietta, Ohio were opened in 2008 and serve the mid-Ohio Valley, including Parkersburg, Wheeling and Huntington, West Virginia and Athens, Cambridge, St. Clairsville, and Zanesville, Ohio.
I am married to a first generation American, who also happens to be a military officer. Together, we travel extensively and are always eager to learn other cultures in our world.
I am extremely efficient, detail-oriented and personable. I get work done quickly and effortlessly and am able to put my clients at ease with their situation.Personal interests:
