About Jessica


Jessica is an immigration attorney with an extensive background in employment immigration.  Jessica has worked with large international corporations to move their employees across borders and to secure working visas for highly skilled employees who wish to come work in this country.

Jessica also regularly advises employees who are here working with a visa about their rights and options once their employment in this country ends (whether it be a planned ending or due to a wrongful termination).  

Jessica assists her clients in securing H1-B and other related work visas and, if eligible, in realizing their dream to become US citizens.



Understanding Your Ethical Duty: What Every Criminal Attorney Needs to Know, March 2020, Author.  In her debut book, Jessica addresses the additional ethical duties implicated when representing an undocumented client in criminal proceedings and how to avoid common pit-falls that could negatively affect a client's immigration status.
