I have been practicing immigration law since 2012. My legal practice is focused on helping immigrants obtain legal status in the United States and defending those who face removal (deportation).


I am extremely passionate about my work because I believe our Government should treat all people equally regardless of where they were born and that our laws should not be construed or enforced to result in the senseless separation or destruction of immigrant families. I was born and raised in New York City, a city built by immigrants, and one that proudly displays the 305 foot-tall Statue of Liberty welcoming immigrants in our harbor. So I fight hard for my clients in the hope that they may have an opportunity to pursue the same American dream through which so many earlier immigrants have prospered.


I volunteer with the Safe Passage Project, providing legal assistance to unaccompanied minors that were arrested by immigration authorities entering the US. These brave young children, fleeing narco-violence and extreme poverty, journey for months, alone, through hundreds of miles of mountains and deserts to get to be reunited with family in the US. PPID generously provides pro bono legal representation to children in these situations when possible.
