As I progressed through law school at the University of Houston, I gained exposure to immigration law and the difficult plight of immigrants to the U.S. Few areas of law affect people to such a degree as immigration, and it became clear to me this was the way I was meant to serve others. I participated in the school’s immigration clinic and interned with the Phoenix Immigration Court as well. I began my career after law school clerking for the Dallas Immigration Court. During my two years in this position, I advised the Court’s immigration judges on a wide range of complicated immigration cases. After leaving my clerkship at the Dallas Immigration Court, I practiced for five years at a respected immigration firm in Dallas, before starting a solo immigration practice in 2017.
I have dedicated my career to assisting immigrants from all walks of life, regularly defending immigrants from deportation in immigration court and on appeal with the Board of Immigration Appeals, and I have also represented hundreds of families seeking permanent residence for loved ones through adjustment of status and consular processing, including cases involving complex waivers of inadmissibility. Additionally, I have a great deal of experience in the field of trade and investor visas, having assisted many companies at all stages of development in procuring E-1 trader or E-2 investor visas for their employees. I also have experience procuring L visas, TN visas, and other temporary employment visas for employers and employees.
When not at work, I enjoy spending time with my wife and son, participating in church activities, barbecuing, and watching football. I have been on several mission trips, including to the South Texas colonias region, and to Guatemala.
