ME HELP GUIDE YOU THROUGH IT.”

As a native of western Canada, I eventually moved to the United States to study law. After becoming a U.S. citizen, I decided to serve my country and join the U.S. Army in 2008, completing two tours of duty in Iraq and Afghanistan. Having gone through the immigration process, I now hope to assist others, as well as provide estate planning services and legal counsel in other areas.

Case Results

Immigration - Obtained Green Card

Client filed for permanent residency without hiring an attorney. His petition was denied after the interview with USCIS where USCIS found that he had misrepresented his intentions to immigration officials when he arrived. He hired our firm and we successfully argued for USCIS to grant him a waiver of inadmissibility and approve his green card.

Immigration - Granted Green Card

Client petitioned for permanent residency based on marriage to a U.S. citizen. He had overstayed his visa and had picked up drug charges. After USCIS denied the initial petition, we successfully argued to reopen the case and argued that USCIS had wrong information regarding the drug charges. The green card was subsequently granted.

Trade Secret - Restraining Order Lifted

Client’s former company accused him of stealing trade secrets and obtained a temporary restraining order against him to prevent him from taking a new position with a competitor. After a three-day hearing, the restraining order was lifted and Client was free to pursue his livelihood.

WHATEVER ISSUE YOU MAY BE FACING, YOU’RE NOT ALONE.

Legal issues can be stressful when you don’t have someone to provide guidance. Let me help see you through.

When it comes to legal issues, half the battle is finding someone you can trust to provide sound legal advice. For over a decade I’ve been helping people across Huntsville and Chattanooga with issues of immigration and naturalization, estate planning, military law, and other legal issues — and I’m proud to continue serving the people of these great cities.

PROVIDING INNOVATIVE SOLUTIONS THAT CAN GET RESULTS AND MEET YOUR LEGAL NEEDS.

I got into the legal profession because I genuinely wanted to find a career path that would allow me to use my knowledge and skills to help others in need. As someone who went through the immigration process, I witnessed first hand the number of people who were in desperate need of legal counsel to guide them through the process. After receiving my citizenship, I knew that I could use my knowledge and experience to help other individuals just like myself who were looking to come to America and create a better life.

After earning my citizenship I was also fortunate to serve my country in 2008 as a member of the U.S. Army. Doing so provided me with a whole new appreciation for the freedoms that this country provides, and I aim to help protect those freedoms for all of my clients. I strive to be a strong advocate for my clients because I’ve seen how unjust this world can be, especially when someone doesn’t have the legal support and guidance they need to help them through whatever legal issues they may be facing.

That’s why I always make the needs of my clients my number one priority. Whether you need someone to guide you through the immigration process, sound legal advice for an estate plan, or a strong advocate for a military or criminal law issue — I’m here to help you find success against any legal challenges that lie ahead.
