In 2009 I became a fellow as certified legal consultant of the NYSBA, a New York association of practicing attorneys who are recognized as the most experienced and skilled attorneys in their respective countries.

Almost two decades of legal practice I have represented my clients from all over the world: the Russian Federation, the United States, Canada, Australia, UK, Switzerland, China, Ukraine, and, I guess, a much more.

Major part of my work as Russian attorney sees me as a consultant specializing in international matters and providing top tier family law firms in the United States advice on cross-jurisdictional matters with a connection to Russia. I acted and continue to act as an expert in Russian law, and provide my expert witness reports to American courts and many other jurisdictions in Russian legal matters, which became landmark cases in relevant jurisdictions.

I am helping Russian citizens in their requests for asylum in the United States. The majority of my clients are ordinary people who would like to immigrate to the United States.
