A second generation immigration attorney, Ms. Hill grew up spending afternoons in her father's immigration law office. However, it was her experience as a U.S. State Department intern with the Consular Section in Manila, Philippines, that inspired her to pursue an immigration law practice herself. She was moved by the challenges visa applicants faced, particularly at a high volume, high fraud post, and was intellectually drawn to supporting clients in navigating our complex immigration process. Ms. Hill is a New Jersey native who relocated to the Bay Area in 2007. She currently lives in San Francisco with her husband and daughter.
Ms. Hill represents fast-growing, mid-size corporate clients counseling them on how to establish competitive programs and scalable systems. Her practice covers both U.S. nonimmigrant (H-1B, L-1, TN, E-3, H-1B1) and immigrant (PERM, I-140 EB-1/EB-2/EB-3, AOS) petitions. Ms. Hill has helped her clients develop business traveler compliance tools and batch recruitment programs for PERM labor certification. She has also managed I-9 self-audits and electronic conversion projects from paper I-9s. She has worked with her clients' HR, Legal, and Finance teams to complete M&A due diligence, onboard employees, and forecast/monitor immigration budgets. Ms. Hill has been recognized by The International Who's Who of Corporate Immigration Lawyers 2013 to present.
