As an immigration attorney at the Schaefer Law Firm, I help Virginia residents navigate the immigration process. I am a member of the American Immigration Lawyers Association (AILA), a national association of over 11,000 attorneys and law professors who practice and teach immigration law.
I have completed intensive consular officer training offered by the Department of State at the National Foreign Affairs Training Center in Arlington, Virginia and have provided consular services in Lagos, Nigeria. I have an international background and have lived or worked in the United States, Europe, Asia and Africa.
Prior to law school I served as a communications officer in the United States Marine Corps and worked in both the private and public sectors. I previously worked as an associate attorney at Cleary Gottlieb Steen & Hamilton LLP in Washington, DC.
I am a graduate of Georgetown University Law Center. I graduated magna cum laude and was granted Order of the Coif recognition for graduating in the top 10% of my class. During law school I was a member of the American Criminal Law Review and served as the Notes Development Editor.
