I am an immigration attorney currently operating out of Moscow, Idaho. In my time practicing the law, I have had the opportunity to learn from and work with some of the greatest immigration lawyers in the country. I have a strong belief in the importance of immigration defense, and work hard to ensure that my clients secure the right outcomes in their cases.

My experience includes a broad range of case types, including, but not limited to:

  • Asylum

  • Cancellation of removal

  • Bond

  • U Visa

  • DACA

  • Naturalization

  • Adjustment of Status

I have worked with immigrants since the age of 16, when I worked as a translator at a Latino center in Eugene, Oregon. I enjoyed my work with the immigrant community from the outset. As a college student, I continued my education with a Spanish major and an international studies major, learning more about Latin-America, Asia, the Middle East and Africa.

In law school, I kept up this dual focus, specializing in immigration law as well as public international law. I learned about the challenging conditions in countries with high rates of immigration to the United States, about the unique challenges behind immigration cases, and the sensitive nature of these cases as they impact family, employment, and all aspects of a client’s life.

As an attorney, and as a person, I do not judge my clients, their circumstances or their status. I can promise you will be treated with respect and dignity, and that all immigrants are welcome, regardless of whether they have lawful status in the United States. If I do not have the capacity to assist you, I will provide referrals to attorneys who do.
