Widely esteemed by legal professionals and the general public for over 40 years, inclusion in The Best Lawyers in America is considered the ultimate testament to legal integrity and distinction in the United States. This prestigious recognition is determined through an extensive peer-review survey, which collected over 13.7 million confidential evaluations from peers within the legal community this year. With nearly 25,000 participants in this edition’s survey, being recognized by The Best Lawyers in America signifies unparalleled professional distinction and serves as an important validation of an attorney’s expertise and skill set.

Jacqueline, Immediate Past Chair of The Florida Bar International Law Section, has also garnered various recognitions throughout her career, including being selected as a Florida Rising Star attorney, as well as being included in the 29th edition of The Best Lawyers in America for her high caliber work in Immigration Law — ranking among the top 5 percent of attorneys nationwide, as determined purely by her peers.

Jacqueline is a Board-Certified Specialist in Immigration and Nationality Law and has extensive experience in the areas of business and family-based immigration. She represents clients before U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (“USCIS”) with regard to non-immigrant visa petitions, extraordinary ability, national interest waiver, and professional worker petitions, labor certifications, family-based immigrant visa petitions, and applications for naturalization. She also practices before the Executive Office for Immigration Review, representing clients in removal proceedings concerning asylum requests, applications to adjust status to permanent residence, cancellation of removal, bond hearings, and other forms of relief.
