Please describe a case in the last year or two where you made a big difference.

Recently, we won a case of an immigrant boy from El Salvador who was waiting for a green card for five years. We represented him in both Family court, before USCIS and Immigration court. Initially, he was not aware of his chance to receive a green card in the United States, and only after our consultation he learned about US government program for foreign children that lead to a green card. We were honored to represent him and make a different in his life.

Emotional intelligence, professionalism, dedication to the cause, willingness to advance and hard work; as well as honesty and openness for discussion.
