My passion for immigration law stems from my interests in travel and learning about other cultures, in addition to my family's personal past history. My grandparents were originally from Hungary, and after surviving the Holocaust, they eventually immigrated to the United States without more than a dollar to their names. Their dream after surviving World War II was to make a life for themselves in the United States. I have a great appreciation for their story, as well as all of the stories of immigrants who come to America to fulfill their dreams.
I started my career in immigration law working as the Immigration Coordinator at Action for Boston Community Development (ABCD), the largest non-profit organization in Boston. At ABCD, I provided legal assistance for hundreds of low-income immigrants in the Boston area. I also spearheaded the expansion of neighborhood sites where we provided immigration services, from Roxbury to Dorchester, Jamaica Plain, and East Boston.
After working at ABCD, I worked as an Associate Attorney at FitzGerald & Company, LLC. At FitzGerald & Company, I represented clients in Immigration Court and in front of United States Citizenship & Immigration Services (USCIS). At FitzGerald & Company, I successfully represented clients with motions to terminate proceedings, cancellation of removal, I-601A Unlawful Presence Waiver, I-601 Waiver, U-Visa, Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA), Adjustment of Status, Violence Against Women Act (VAWA), Family Petition, and Naturalization proceedings.
I moved to Boston in 2011 after graduating from the Temple University Beasley School of Law and became licensed to practice law in Massachusetts and Pennsylvania. I was excited to move back to the home of my alma mater, Tufts University, where I received my bachelors degree in international relations and Spanish. I have a great passion for sports, including a love for soccer which I developed in my time studying in Barcelona. However, I am from Philadelphia originally, and my primary allegiance is to Philadelphia sports. I am also fluent in Spanish, proficient in Hebrew, and have a basic understanding of Italian.
