As an attorney licensed in the State of Massachusetts, Jennifer is authorized to practice immigration law in Maine under Maine state law and by the Rules of Professional Conduct issued by the Board of Overseers of the Bar in Maine. Immigration is a matter that is governed by federal law. Therefore, an attorney licensed to practice in one state can represent immigration clients in any state.
Jennifer deliberately limits her law practice to immigration and nationality matters in order to provide the best possible representation to her clients. Should a client need assistance in matters involving Maine state law, such as Family or Elder Law, Real Estate, Business, Bankruptcy, Estate Planning or Probate law, Jennifer will collaborate with the other Attorneys at GVD Law to ensure her client is served by an attorney who is both licensed in Maine and has expertise in the matter in question.
