Before practicing law in Lynnwood, WA, Steven had the opportunity to live and work abroad in other countries including Japan and Canada where he had to obtain working visas for himself. Steve met his Canadian wife while working in Japan and helped her obtain her own green card and eventually become a US Citizen.
Because of his time abroad, Steve understands and empathizes with the challenges that can arise when beginning any kind of immigration process. He finds fulfillment in helping his clients cut through the legal clutter so they can confidently enter the US and begin living and working here.
Historically, the United States has always been welcoming to others, which is one factor that contributes to making it one of the best countries to live and work in. Steve wants to help more people enjoy the many opportunities this nation has to offer.
Acquiring visas or immigrating to the United States is a complex legal process. If the correct procedure isn’t followed, applicants risk losing time, money, and could be penalized from future entry into the country. Steve is an experienced lawyer who will inform you of your best options, help you understand your rights and will guide you through potential obstacles and challenges of immigration.
