She Loves What He Does And It Shows

“Pamela is a lawyer’s lawyer. She has worked for the Service and has a great gut feel for where Immigration is coming from and what will happen with a case. He loves what he does and it shows. She cares about clients and will fight for them in court-something some are afraid to do. She is knowledgeable about the law and has an intellectual curiosity and flexibility to look outside the box at legal issues. She has drafted legislation that has been enacted and become law. His office is well run and the people working for him are happy, professional and thorough in their representation-this is no small task for attorneys who are never trained in law school about how to run an office. It also matters for clients-they get better service from a happy, professional staff. All in all, I highly endorse Carl”
