After graduating from Covell, I worked for several years as a career counselor and teacher with “HEP” (High School Equivalency Program) on the UOP campus.  HEP was a residential program for high school drop outs from farm worker families in California’s central valley.  In 1975, I returned to my hometown of Santa Cruz and worked as a grant writer with La Coalicion, a social service program serving the low income Latino and mostly farm working population in Monterey and San Benito Counties.  Later, I joined the State of California Employment Development Department as an unemployment insurance adjudicator.  Unhappy with the life of a government employee, I decided to realize my lifelong dream of going to law school and I moved to San Francisco where I still reside with my wife of nearly 30 years.  


Attending Lincoln Law School in the City in the early 1980’s, I walked into an Immigration Clinic and discovered my strong interest in immigration law.  As a law student, I represented pro bono many Centro-americanos with their requests for asylum in the United States.  After a long, hard fought battle in immigration court, I am proud to say that our Clinic won the first asylum case on the West Coast for an El Salvadoran young man who avoided being forced to return to his civil war torn and very dangerous home country.  


As an immigration lawyer for the past 26 years, I have continued to represent asylum seekers and 100s of individuals from around the world assisting them to achieve their goal of coming to the U.S. and realizing their own “American dream.”  I also represent employers who sponsor highly skilled foreign nationals for temporary and permanent employment visas in occupations including high-tech engineers, outstanding scientists and researchers, tenured track professors, bi-lingual high school teachers and international managers.   I am a State Bar Certified Specialist in Immigration & Nationality Law and have been a frequent speaker at legal seminars with professional organizations such as the American Immigration Lawyers Association.  I invite you to visit my website at


My wife, Linda, and I are the proud parents of 4 children, ages 19 to 27.  Todavia no tenemos nietos but there’s plenty of time!
