I started my legal career in immigration law, an area of law close to my heart. As a young child, I went through the process myself when I immigrated to the United States. I enjoy bringing families together and helping businesses get started while navigating complex immigration issues. Immigration law is constantly changing and I make sure to keep up to date with the latest to ensure your immigration needs are met. Immigration law can be complex and highly confusing. There are specific laws that dictate which visas are available, the qualifications for getting those visas, and the procedures that must be followed to get the visas approved. Understanding the differences between all the visas and properly filling out the application can mean the difference from you receiving an approval or denial of your visa. Let me help you so that you have the best chance possible to get your visa approved.
My practice also focuses on estate planning and special needs planning. Through personal life experience, I felt compelled to help families plan for their future. I am a mother to a special needs child, and I understand the struggles and confusion involved in navigating all the different pieces of care for your loved one. I still have many days where I feel so helpless as a parent. I worry on a regular basis fearing that one day my little girl won’t be safe, loved, comforted, and looked after. My world changed when the doctor called me with the results. Whatever I had planned or thought of planning completely changed and there was no looking back.
I know where you are because I’ve been there. This journey can be exhausting and overwhelming. However, it is not hopeless and you can do this. Let me help you make a plan so that your loved one will have the best life possible even when you’re not there to take care of them. Let’s not leave it up to someone who doesn’t know them to make important life, financial, and medical decisions on their behalf. You can still have a long, lasting voice in their care with proper planning.
It’s never too early or too late to make a plan. This is your family and your legacy. Let’s make sure your voice is heard.
