Success Stories

NOTE THAT CASE RESULTS DEPEND UPON A VARIETY OF FACTORS THAT ARE UNIQUE TO EACH CASE. PREVIOUS RESULTS DO NOT GUARANTEE OR PREDICT A SIMILAR RESULT IN ANY FUTURE CASE THAT I UNDERTAKE.

 
I know that getting a better understanding of the types of cases I’ve handled in the past can be very helpful to deciding whether you’d like to schedule a consultation appointment with me. With that in mind, I’ve included summaries of some of my past cases so that you can get a feel for my law firm and the types of cases that I accept.
 
Please keep in mind that immigration law is complex and even very small changes in facts can have a very big difference in the outcome of a case. In addition, neither I nor any other immigration lawyer can guarantee the outcome of your case.
