“Stop crying,” were my mother’s words as we crossed the Rio Grande River in one of our last and desperate attempts to climb above the pit of poverty. I clearly remember the long and heartbreaking journey of entering and remaining in this country and I have nothing but compassion for those going through that journey.
I grew up on the border, in El Paso, Texas. There, I witnessed firsthand the injustices resulting from a complicated and unfair immigration system. This inspired me to pursue a career in law. After acquiring a finance degree from the University of Texas in El Paso, I pursued my dream of going to law school and becoming an immigration attorney.
Since graduating from St. Mary’s School of Law in San Antonio, I have dedicated my career to doing humanitarian work and to helping those who usually don’t have a voice. It is an honor to be able to help not only my Mexican people but people from all over the world. Helping people accomplish their dreams and remain together with their families is meaningful and fulfilling for me. I do this work because I have been there. I do this work because I care.
I currently live in beautiful Boulder, Colorado and give free consultations in the surrounding areas. Here in Colorado, I am part of the Board of Directors for El Comité de Longmont. I work hand in hand with El Comité to help the Immigrant Community of Colorado. From citizenship drives to free immigration consultations on Wednesdays, our work never stops. Please contact me for a free consultation in person or over the phone.
