“Immigration law is compelling to me because it’s both intellectually challenging and emotionally fulfilling. I love that each day brings a new challenge that needs a creative solution, and I enjoy bringing clarity to the complexity of U.S. immigration law. Even more fulfilling are the relationships I have the opportunity to foster with our clients, their employees, as well as BAL’s talented team, and the impact I see my work have on their work and lives.”
