I have spent a lot of time working with immigrants and people coming to the United States for many various reasons. I learned a lot about their personal circumstances and got to understand their cultures. Working as a District Adjudication Officer in West Palm Beach was very rewarding for me. I learned a lot about U.S. Immigration laws, and my greatest satisfaction came when a difficult case resulted in the grant of the immigration benefit of an applicant. Now I hope to share my knowledge and experience to help our clients through the immigration process.
