I represent individuals in immigration proceedings before U.S. Immigration Courts as well as before U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) for family-based petitions, naturalization, and humanitarian relief such as asylum, Special Immigrant Juvenile Status, U visas, VAWA and T visas.
I have significant experience representing individuals in humanitarian immigration claims, including asylum, withholding of removal, and relief under the Convention against Torture. I have represented political activists, those fleeing from forms of gender-based violence, those fleeing gang violence, and members of the LGBTQ community from all over the world. I am particularly skilled at representing unaccompanied minor children and teenagers. My practice also includes family based immigration claims, bond for detained individuals, and immigration assistance for those with criminal records, and advising small businesses and entrepreneurs in business immigration matters.
As the mother of a twice-exceptional child, I have first-hand experience negotiating and navigating the special education process. I have represented parents and their children at IEP meetings, due process hearings and settlement negotiations.

I have represented sellers and purchasers of all types of real estate, whether residential, commercial or condominium properties. I also have experience representing clients who are facing foreclosure.
