Mission Statement

My goal is to provide my clients with the highest level of immigration legal representation possible at competitive rates with an emphasis on customer service and results.

Motivation

My very first immigration client was a young man from Togo who had flown into the Dulles Airport in early 2008 and claimed political asylum. At that time, such asylum seekers were routinely detained by the Department of Homeland Security. When I took the case, my client had been sitting in a county jail outside Richmond, Virginia for about three months. A non-profit immigration organization had found the young man and I agreed to represent him pro bono. The young man spoke West-African French and Ewe, but he did not speak English. I had heard that the young man was having a tough time because he was being picked on by the other inmates. It must have been a bewildering experience for this young man to came to the United States seeking refuge, but then end up in a county jail in semi-rural America with no English language ability and getting picked on by the other inmates. I had arranged an interview with my client and I brought a volunteer interpreter, a young woman who was a law school student at American University who was originally from Morocco and also spoke West-African French. When I arrived in the attorney conference room at the jail, the young man was sitting at his chair with his head drooped. His entire body language conveyed frustration and defeat. Right away the interpreter started conversing with the young man in West-African French. My interpreter must have sounded like an angel from heaven to that young man. The young man immediately started to perk up and by the end of the three hour interview, we were all laughing and joking around. I promised the young man that I would help him with his case and try to get him released. Two months later, I got the young man released on humanitarian parole and two years after that, the young man was granted political asylum. That day in that jail, I realized firsthand the incredible power that lawyers have to positively affect a person’s life.
