I graduated from the University of Washington School of Sociology in 2009. My parents are Mexican immigrants, as I am. I came to the US at age four, and know first-hand the struggle to obtain legal status. My parents persevered in their quest, and are now US citizens. I am privileged to serve other immigrants, and to do my best to help ensure that they win legal status.
As a legal assistant, I focus my work on family-based petitions with both USCIS and with the immigration court. I work closely with clients to prepare their documentation and applications for all USCIS processes, including petitions for family members, adjustment of status to permanent residence, citizenship, and petitions to lift conditions on residence for those married to US citizens. I am motivated by the great difference legal status makes in our clients’ lives, and in their families. We have had great success in our work. This includes gaining legal residence for clients who should have gotten their legal status many years ago, but for not having had an experienced attorney. I also manage our firm’s financial and administrative departments.
