“I represent high-performing professionals who say they value my ability to provide what very few lawyers can offer: a deep well of knowledge and broad skill sets in both immigration law and corporate law. They know that’s a rare combination. I navigate them through two complex and stressful processes – obtaining a visa and setting up a business. As a business owner, I understand the challenges my international clients face, and I do all I can to help them achieve their hopes and dreams.”
