Your Immigration Lawyer. Compassionate. Competent.

Why Choose Me?

How am I the Right Lawyer for You?

The overwhelming majority of my immigration law practice derives from repeat business and a very strong referral base of “happy customers” and a large supporting professional network. As such, it is important to me that my clients report back to me frequently with feedback.

To me, there is no substitute for a happy referral by my clients and contacts to others who may need my services or advice.  I welcome all referrals.

While there is no substitute for a face-to-face meeting with me, in order for you to decide if I am the right lawyer for you, you may consider a number of different factors, such as my experience, past results of actual cases, client referrals, referrals from other lawyer and other professionals, and other third-party sources.


The nature of my representation and work as an immigration lawyer can be summarized as follows:

  • Solid experience in U.S. Immigration Law
  • Individual attention to every client
  • Sophisticated, competent and efficient representation
  • Reliable, straight-forward legal advice
  • Work product delivered timely
  • On-Site, ‘house-call’ consultations may be available (by agreement)
  • Native speaker of English and German

Having spent about 20 years in Germany, I am a native-speaker of German. I am a 1998 graduate from the University of South Florida cum laude with a B.A. in Political Science and Int’l Affairs and a 2000 graduate from Stetson University College of Law. I run and oversee a very busy immigration practice which is located in St. Petersburg, Florida, in the greater Tampa Bay metropolitan area.

Over the years, I have authored many articles (online and in print) on various aspects of U.S. immigration law, including visa strategies, legislative and regulatory updates, de-mystifying government agencies, and providing insight into Homeland Security and State Department practices. I have also maintained a Blog on immigration law and related topics.

I also serve as an Adjunct Professor at St. Petersburg College in the Paralegal Studies department, teaching an introductory immigration law course to paralegal students seeking a Bachelor’s Degree.

While my practice originates from the greater metropolitan area of Tampa Bay, Florida, I represent clients (individuals and businesses) worldwide
