Ms. LaCombe also handles nonimmigrant visas and permanent residence sponsorship, as well as extraordinary ability cases in the arts, sciences and business, outstanding professor and researcher matters and all types of waivers. She earned her J.D. from Columbia Law School and her B.A. from the University of Michigan.
