Why Did You Decide To Become An Immigration Attorney?

I gravitated towards Immigration Law because I truly believe that it is a field that humanizes the global community.  I am rewarded on a daily basis in helping our clients achieve their immigration goals and feel that our work makes us a stronger nation.  The practice of ‘Immigration’ is based in the ideals of diversity, cooperation, and accommodation, all of which contribute to creating a more harmonized and socially responsible society. – Layla Panjwani
