Rob believes every immigrant brings something unique to the United States. He knew he wanted to be an attorney even as a child and often thinks about how immigration procedures have changed since his mother submitted a naturalization application and obtained citizenship without the help of an attorney. Today, Rob has a particular passion for helping clients with rapidly evolving needs navigate the tangle of immigration laws and regulations that are often slow to respond to emerging trends.
