A New Year brings new beginnings, new opportunities, and new adventures.

As we begin 2018, Mehlman Barnes has some exciting news to share with our clients, friends and colleagues. As of January 1, Sharon Mehlman and the MB staff have joined with partners Alan Tafapolsky and Tony Smith (of Tafapolsky & Smith, LLP), and the new firm is now known as Tafapolsky Smith Mehlman, LLP (or “TSM”).  Sharon has known Alan and Tony for many years, and they and their firm have distinguished reputations in the field. With offices now in San Francisco, Los Angeles and San Diego, TSM will continue to provide a wide range of immigration services and will also have specialties in compliance and global (outbound) immigration. We are thrilled about this new venture, and we know that it will provide many benefits for our clients and staff. We will be in touch shortly and in the meanwhile, everything will remain the same with pending cases.  We are enthusiastic to discuss all the details with you.

The San Diego office is also happy to announce the addition of two experienced attorneys to our existing attorney staff ­- Teodora Purcell and Kimberly Nguyen. Additionally, MB Partner Shannon Barnes will be embarking on a new adventure of her own.  Shannon has accepted an in-house position with a leading Bay Area company and we are excited to continue working with her in her new role.

If you have any questions, please feel free to reach out to me directly.  Our phone numbers and address will remain the same.  While our emails will be changing, our old email addresses will continue to be active. 

Wishing you health and happiness in the New Year!

Best regards,

Sharon Mehlman
