I graduated from Florida A&M University College of Law in the top ten percent of my class. I continued my legal studies at American University Washington College of Law where I studied International Business Law. I launched my legal career in Washington D.C. as a legal consultant for International Centre for Settlement of Investment Disputes (ICSID) in the World Bank Group. I practiced law and worked in international political analysis in Washington D.C. until joining the Department of Homeland Security and worked in the intelligence sector as a political analyst.
I practiced law as an Assistant Chief Counsel for the Department of Homeland Security in Los Angeles and San Francisco. I tried hundreds of cases in immigration court including criminal and unlawful presence waivers, asylum, convention against torture (CAT) and Withholding of removal cases, cancellation of removal 42A, 42B adjustments, among others.
As a first-generation American, I am passionate about immigration and decided to apply my expertise in immigration to advocate for migrants. I am licensed in the State of Florida and can assist immigration clients across the United States.
Our attitude towards immigration reflects our faith in the American ideal. We have always believed it possible for men and women who start at the bottom to rise as far as the talent and energy allow. Neither race nor place of birth should affect their chances.
