What is Legacy Immigration?
Legacy Immigration is the manifestation of my desire to help people from a grassroots level.
In choosing the name, I thought, “What makes this country great?” The answer was the same
reason my parents came: Opportunity and freedom to create a lasting legacy.
Immigration Law is extremely challenging due to ever-changing statutes and regulations.
Each case requires an in-depth understanding of the INA and CFR and how they’re intertwined. I advocate vigorously by presenting new and persuasive interpretations of preexisting
law based on a meticulous examination of my client’s case.
What sets you apart?
I come from a scientific and artistic background, which enables me to think logically, yet
creatively. I include a lot of “heart” in my filings because my clients are more than “just a
number” or “case file.” My aim is to put the adjudicator in my client’s proverbial shoes, and
in doing so, I can often persuade the officer to approve the case.
To me, knowledge is power. I empower my clients by educating them about their case and
immigration law. This area of law is deeply personal. My clients place their trust and faith in
me, and because I hold their lives in my hands, I devote myself wholeheartedly to each filing.
I work on each case until I know I’ve done my best.
My clients are often surprised by my spirituality. I pray for every client, regardless of his or
her religion. I pray over every petition sent and attribute most of my success to God, with the
remainder going to my amazing husband, mother and brother.
