VISION 

Inspired by excellence, innovation, and the pursuit of knowledge, I strive to be one of the most recognized independent immigration lawyers within the Colombian expat community. This leadership is synonymous with quality and trust for the various expat groups in Colombia for which I consult, and the many domestic and international clients I have advised over the last decade.

ABOUT ME

Navigating the immigration system alone can be challenging because immigration laws and procedures are constantly changing. It is a myth that immigration practice is only about filling out forms. It is a far more complex process that involves a deep understanding of the law and strategic decision making. Having an attorney by your side is essential.

 

I am an independent professional whose goal is to provide excellent legal services to my clients for fair and reasonable compensation. I seek to earn and maintain the respect of my clients, my colleagues, and the legal community, as well as enhance self-respect by providing outstanding professional services to you.

 

I make a difference in my clients’ lives by providing solutions to their immigration problems. What differentiates me from other lawyers or firms is that I am : 

  • Authentic.  Honest and upfront about your legal rights and responsibilities. No confusing legal jargon, just the information you need to make sound decisions.

  • Available.  Legal matters can be stressful. I will be available to answer your questions throughout your case, as they come up..

  • Attentive. As an independent Attorney focused solely on immigration matters I am small and focused enough to offer personal attention. 

  • Resourceful. With a single point of contact, and low overhead I am able to be cost-conscious, focusing my resources on your case. I am also careful to never over-lawyer a matter.
