July/August President's Message

Greetings fellow members of the Washtenaw County Bar Association!  It is such an honor to be writing to you as the President of this amazing organization. I intend my stewardship as President of the WCBA to follow the fine examples all of the past presidents have set for me, including those of Elizabeth Jolliffe (from whom I am taking the gavel this year).  I want to expressly thank her for all she has done – not just for all of her hard work with the WCBA, but also for all the advice she has given me as a mentor and as a friend.  I cannot wait to continue the terrific programs she spearheaded this past year –not to mention team-up again as two-time defending champions at the 2020 Annual Trivia Night!

I started working in immigration law as an undergraduate at the University of Michigan in 1992, and I have been hooked ever since. Before, during, and after my law education at Wayne State University Law School (1999 graduate), I have worked in various environments (law firm, university, government), which has allowed me to develop a broad perspective on immigration law issues.

It is hard to articulate all of the things I love about immigration law. First and foremost, it is my clients, their drive to succeed and to better their new country while providing the best possible lives for their families. We understand that everything is on the line, and I value the trust that each client has placed in me in order to make life plans fall into place. I want to use my knowledge, attention to detail, and professional skills to put clients' minds at ease as they navigate through a very difficult legal process.
