I am a practicing immigration lawyer for more than 32 years and every case is handled personally by me. I work with all types of immigration cases from family and work visas; residency and citizenship to removal defense.
I offer telephone consults for free and then meetings in either my office in Brookline, MA. or in my office in Lowell, MA.
I speak Spanish as well, with interpreters to assist always welcome!
I have families and individuals come back to me over the years to handle new cases for them and I have received a number of awards for my work in defending and helping immigrants from all over the world in family, business and immigration defense work.
