Allyn is an Attorney on our Business Immigration Services Team and High-Skilled Immigration Services Team, working primarily with the healthcare and scientific communities. She develops O-1 visa and green card applications for scientists and researchers in the extraordinary ability and outstanding researcher categories. What really sets Allyn apart is her acumen for recognizing what makes a client truly special in their field. She conveys highly complex information in a way that can be easily understood by the reviewing officer; the winning formula for success in these challenging cases.
Allyn's personal experience at the intersection of immigration and the law is that of her parents. They immigrated from Honduras where her grandmother was an attorney and judge. Inspired by her grandmother, Allyn says she’s wanted to be an attorney for as long as she can remember. We think she made the right career choice!
Raised in the Pacific Northwest, Allyn admits that her driving skills are much better in the rain than the snow. That doesn’t deter her from traveling frequently to Northern Michigan, one of her favorite hobbies.
Allyn’s college sports passion fits right in at Ellis Porter. She even got married on the campus of the University of Michigan. That’s taking team dedication to a whole other level!
