Shelly assists attorneys in preparing, filing, and monitoring all types of complex immigration cases, including asylum, deportation, family/employment-based immigration petitions, consular processing of non-immigrant and immigrant visas, waivers of inadmissibility, and naturalization applications.
Shelly is currently attending Frederick Community College to earn her degree in Paralegal Studies. She plans to use her knowledge to advance her growth with Sentelle Law.

Shelly’s family is everything to her, and that is part of the reason she brings so much to Sentelle Law, because she enjoys helping people as much as the rest of the team.
