With respect to employment-based immigrant petitions, she advises and represents clients in all employment preference categories (1st, 2nd and 3rd), as well as adjustment of status.

She has also practiced in the areas of commercial and tort litigation. Her experience in these areas include cases involving product liability, personal injury and real estate disputes.
