Fighting the good fight with bloody knuckles.
Introduction

I am admitted to practice in the courts of the State of New York, the United States District Court for the Western District of New York, and the United States Court of Appeals for the Second Circuit. I am a member of the American Immigration Lawyers Association (AILA).

I have appeared on CNN American Morning, have spoken at AILA's annual conference on grounds of removability, am the author of the Deportation and Removal Blog on ILW.com, and I'm listed as one of the most influential people on Twitter in the area of Immigration Law.

Practice Areas:

Deportation defense before the Immigration Courts throughout the United States, appellate practice before the Board of Immigration Appeals, the U.S. District Courts, and U.S. Courts of Appeals, as well as the immigration areas of business development, family petitions, asylum, waivers, and labor certification.
