Creative Immigration Solutions

We’re not just a bunch of immigration lawyers. We’re creatives, too. Prior to law, many of us have worked in the arts, in film, in human rights. Some of us are green card holders and children of immigrants. At the core, we’re a diverse group—ethnically, religiously, in gender and in race.

While we’re mostly female, it’s not intentional. Yet, it does make for an amazing work environment in which we all have different viewpoints and use them in creative ways to resolve cases. This gives us a deeper understanding of our clients needs and a strong connection to their cases.

We work as a team on all cases and the support and collective thought allow us to provide our clients with top notch service and care. It’s a winning combination.
