About
For the past year, I have practiced as an immigration litigation defense attorney. I have represented numerous clients in immigration court and won status for many of them. Before that, I worked a clerk for Judge Jane B. Stranch of the Federal Court of Appeals for the Sixth Circuit. In that clerkship, I work in incredibly complex and important cases, a couple of which have since reached the Supreme Court. I also have worked for the war crimes courts for the Yugoslavian wars and for the Rwandan Genocide and managed a women's rights organization in Tanzania.
