Attorney Profile

Ms. Stouffer strongly believes in clients having all the information they need to make a well-informed decision.  She strives to help  clients know and understand their rights in terms of the ever changing and complex immigration laws. 

Ms. Stouffer decided to be a lawyer because she had the sense that she could "translate" law so that her clients would feel they have access to their rights in order to make informed decisions. Years ago she needed the help of an attorney and was relieved to find a person with whom she could relate on a human level.  This attorney, who was a great role model, painted a clear picture of her rights in terms easily understandable that felt like a path out of a difficult situation.

Ms. Stouffer cites a variety of experiences in several different careers over the years that led her finally to immigration law. She has traveled extensively and spent time living abroad in Morocco and France.  To her legal practice, she brings her past experiences interacting with many different types of people and her ability to manage pressure-filled situations with grace.  Ms. Stouffer's mother is an immigrant in the United States and she has been an immigrant overseas. For these reasons, it means a lot to her to give back to the immigrant community.  She loves having the chance to meet people from all over the world and finds it an honor to work with clients and get to know their histories.
