Ohio and Nationwide Immigration Law Firm

Firm Overview

Dear prospective client,

Thank you for visiting my website. I established my immigration law practice in 2005 with the goal of assisting clients from all over the world with their immigration needs. Since then, I have successfully counseled hundreds of clients from over 100 different countries. The secret behind my success is very simple: personal care and compassion for every client.

I take each client's case very personally. My wife and many of my closest friends are immigrants. Having lived, worked, studied and traveled abroad extensively, I understand the challenges and difficulties that people in other parts of the world often face. This is why I have devoted my career to helping clients secure better futures, living and working in the U.S.

Unlike many immigration attorneys, I do not delegate my clients' cases to paralegals, secretaries or other staff. I personally handle each case from start to finish. Communication is the most important part of the attorney-client relationship. If you call or e-mail me with questions or concerns about your case, I will do my very best to answer within 24 hours, unless it is a weekend or holiday. I speak fluent Russian, as well as conversational French and German.

I help clients with a wide variety of immigration matters, ranging from family and employment-based cases to asylum and naturalization. If you are looking for an immigration attorney who will truly care about you and your case, I encourage you give me a call or send me an e-mail. It will be my pleasure to assist you.

Here's what some of my past clients have to say about their experiences in working with me:
