Caring and Competent Immigration Services

We care about you and your immigration matters. An immigrant myself, I understand the anxiety involved in the immigration process, whether you have legal status or not. I brings her years of experience, in depth knowledge, and empathy to every case I handle. My goal is to help you achieve yours.

How did your firm decide on the primary area of practice(s)?

When I decided to start my own law firm there were so many areas of practice open to me. I chose an immigration law practice because I like and care about people and wanted to make a difference in their lives. I have never regretted the choice I made.

What experience or education distinguishes your lawyers from others?

I am an immigrant myself and understand the pain and anxiety of starting life anew in a different country. I bring to my law practice the experience and emotion of my personal immigration journey; my years of experience as a lawyer in other countries and cultures; my knowledge and understanding of complex laws and legal issues; and my compassion for others. I have over 35 years of legal experience working in England, the United Arab Emirates and the USA.

What distinguishes your law firm from others?

We are a small law firm with a big heart. We care about people and the situations they find themselves in. We do not judge and we do our best to help. We care about justice and we fight for the underdog. Our goal is to serve and we will give you an honest assessment of your case - even if it is painful at times to be told there is nothing that can be done.
