Her passion in immigration law deeply ingrained in her because she was one of them and personally underwent the same immigration process herself. Having a full understanding of how difficult, challenging and complex the entire immigration process can be based on her personal experience, her goal is to help each of her clients, both corporate and individual clients, to expand into new opportunities, overcome obstacles, and ultimately achieve their immigration goals in the U.S. She truly believes in helping her corporate clients move around/hire talented foreign national employees to work on their critical projects in the U.S. as well as individual clients achieve their American Dream just like she did.
She represents both corporate/business clients and individual clients on all aspects of immigration law, including business, investment, and family immigration as well as immigration litigation.

She also advises her corporate clients about the immigration consequences of mergers, acquisitions, corporate restructuring, employer sanctions, and immigration law audits including labor condition applications and I-9 verification.
