Thomas Jefferson School of Law
I specialize in complex employment-based cases and have successfully prepared and filed high level petitions for world-renowned scientists whose work is seminal in leading the way for breakthroughs in finding cures for diseases afflicting millions of people in the U.S. and throughout the world. I have also effectively assisted both large and small businesses in the U.S. in bringing in qualified people to play key and managerial roles in these organizations which are providing U.S. jobs. In addition, my pro bono work in filing VAWA, U and T visa applications have brought hope to many victims of crime and abuse.
I graduated from the University of Cape Town with a bachelor’s degree in social anthropology then worked for The Cape Argus following journalism training within the national newspaper group. I also worked for other major South African publications including the Financial Mail. After immigrating to the U.S., I ghost wrote various books for immigration attorneys, which peaked my interest in studying law. I graduated cum laude from Thomas Jefferson School of Law in 1996 and joined my current firm in September 1999, following a freelance appellate writing career. I have been practicing and been stimulated by immigration law since then.
I am a member of the San Diego County Bar Association, the American Immigration Lawyers’ Association and Lawyer’s Club of San Diego, where I served as a Board Member.
