Alison graduated from the University of New Mexico School of Law in 2003 with clinical honors. Since then, she has exclusively practiced immigration law. In 2009, she opened her own practice to focus on family-based immigration, helping victims of crime and domestic violence, consular processing, and naturalization cases. She also prepares applications for religious, performance, fiancé and cultural exchange visas, as well as waivers for clients who have left the United States in order to gain lawful status. Securing a legal return to the U.S. for these clients is her most rewarding work. She also represents clients who are facing deportation in Immigration Court.
Alison is a member of the American Immigration Lawyers Association and the New Mexico State Bar’s Immigration Law section. She has been a consultant for the University of New Mexico School of Law’s Clinical Law Program for five years. She is also a fluent Spanish speaker.
