Why do you do what you do?  What motivates and inspires you?

I am a Christian; Methodist, specifically.  I am an immigration attorney because I believe that’s God’s plan for my life. Every day when I wake up, I know that God is going to send me people who desperately need my help with their complex immigration cases. I am blessed to do God’s work every day and love doing it!  

Advocating for my clients is what motivates me. What inspires me is that, although my job is extremely difficult, with God’s ultimate wisdom and guidance, I know I can submit winning arguments. I have won countless cases that are nothing short of miracles. 

 

What do you look forward to when you go to work every day?

My clients are the reason that I look forward to going to work—I love them and want to help them. I believe that God gifted me with the skills and talent to advocate for what is right and to help those who cannot advocate for themselves.  

 

What qualities do you think a successful attorney should have?

I try to be compassionate by remembering that, unlike my parents who endured deportation proceedings in the 1970s, I was lucky to have been born a U.S. citizen.  
Second, creativity, or the ability to think outside the box, is crucial to being a successful immigration attorney. Every client has had different experiences that have brought him/her into my office. I delve deeply into my client’s life to find those unique circumstances that will help me submit a winning case.
