Nicole specializes in cases that require processing through the US Consulate in Ciudad Juarez and other consular posts abroad. If you must depart the U.S. to become a Lawful Permanent Resident, Nicole has assisted hundreds of families in completing that process by provided counsel before, during, and after your departure from the U.S.

If your case can be processed inside the U.S., Nicole will be able to advise you how and assist you with your filing. Sometimes small things make a big difference and if there is a way to keep your case in the U.S, Nicole will find it.

Nicole has attended hundreds of Naturalization interviews with her clients. She knows exactly what the adjudicators will ask, and how they will ask it. She will practice with you on your case and prepare to fight for you on any issue that might come up that would prevent you from becoming a U.S. Citizen.

If you are currently awaiting a Removal hearing or have been deported in the past, Nicole can provide you with thorough, accurate and honest advice. She has been successful in researching and reopening dozens of old Removal orders and has been litigating active deportation cases on the Boise docket since 2007.

Have you or a loved one suffered a crime in the U.S. where you were helpful in its reporting to police? Nicole works closely with law enforcement to get the Certification required by law and submitting your full application in order for you to receive protected status as soon as possible.

Have you suffered serious harm in your journey to the US, in a domestic relationship, or at the workplace? Even if this occurred a long time ago and you haven’t spoken to anyone about it before, if someone forced or coerced to you to perform services of any kind, you might be eligible for a T Visa.
