Immigration

When did the American Dream start for you? Were you in interested in the country from a young age? Searching for a more open life? A new opportunity?

Many immigrants started here with such dreams, and I consider it my professional duty to help you achieve them. I represent clients applying for green cards, work visas, citizenship and asylum. I accept 50 clients per year, and limit my representation to these clients in a thoughtful, cost effective manner. When I quote you a fee for your case, I will not raise it or change fees absent a significant change in the circumstances in your case. 

I will continually be available to my clients, and once I accept your case, I am a phone call away. I provide my clients information and access to their case at all times, and I believe service to them is my number one priority. I am currently accepting new clients in the San Francisco and Tampa Bay Area, contact me today to learn more about our work.

Litigation

The billboards are always advertising 'aggressive and tenacious' attorneys. I'll turn on the radio or the TV, and there they are again, soliciting for medical malpractice and auto insurance cases. I gotta be honest, there's something about it that doesn't feel quite right.  I'm not saying that people who are injured don't deserve to be made whole. I'm saying that the way we're doing it doesn't feel right. Does that make sense?

If you're looking for an attorney who bills themselves as aggressive and tenacious, that's fine. I think it's better, however, if you're looking for a lawyer who cares about clients and their needs. I want to be that lawyer.  I'm not looking for an aggressive and tenacious professional life. I'm looking for a life that helps my clients get the best possible outcome for their case.

If you're involved in an accident, have a question, or just need help. I'm here. I work with a team of lawyers I respect, and will advocate to get the best possible outcome for all clients that contact me. I believe in doing the right thing by my clients. Period.

I never avoid litigation, and I never take a case to court to hurt or harass another. If you contact me for help, I will do my personal and professional best to help you. If you have questions, please contact me.

Fees

Before clients call, I think information is key. I want people to have a sense of me, and I also want them to know what to expect in terms of cost. This way, from the very beginning they'll know the type of advocate I am, and what costs they can expect.  

When you contact us, we'll set up a time to talk through your legal questions. I'll take the quotes I have below, and I'll look through any paperwork you have. If your legal matter fits one of the categories, and does not have any outstanding issues to address, I'll quote you just as I have below, and, if nothing changes in your case, you will not receive another price later in the process.
