Kimberly is a legal adviser to the Mexican Consulate in Philadelphia, providing consultations to detained and non-detained Mexican Nationals, as well as direct representation in removal proceedings and affirmative applications.
Her primary practice focuses on removal defense. She litigates cases before the Immigration Court, the Board of Immigration Appeals (BIA), and Federal Circuit Courts. Some common reliefs from removal that Kimberly litigates are Cancellation of Removal for both Permanent Residents and Nonpermanent Residents, 212(c) Waivers for those Permanent Residents with old criminal convictions, Waivers of Inadmissibility for criminal or fraud grounds, Asylum, Withholding of Removal, and Relief under the Convention Against Torture (CAT).
In addition to her removal practice, Kimberly represents individuals and families applying for affirmative benefits with U.S. Citizenship & Immigration Services (USCIS). Some applications include family-based I-130 Petitions, Adjustment of Status, Special Immigrant Juvenile Petitions (SIJ), VAWA Petitions for Victims of Domestic Violence, U Visa Petitions for crime victims, Naturalization and Certificates of Citizenship, Consular Processing, Fiancé Visas, Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA), and Temporary Protected Status (TPS).
Kimberly obtained her Juris Doctorate at Temple University, Beasley School of Law in January 2011. She received her B.A. in Political Science and Spanish from LaSalle University in 2007. While attending LaSalle University, Kimberly participated in an exchange program which allowed her to spend a semester studying at LaSalle’s Mexico City campus. This experience allowed her to travel through much of Mexico and enhance her Spanish language fluency.
The immigrant experience is personal to Kimberly, as her mother was born in Scotland and she witnessed first-hand a loved one navigate the U.S. immigration system on their own. Her personal experience drives her to be a dedicated and compassionate advocate for her clients.
Kimberly is a member of the American Immigration Lawyers Association (AILA), The Independence Business Alliance (IBA), and the Philadelphia Bar Association, where she is on the LGBT Rights Committee. Kimberly is fluent in Spanish.
