Biography

I am a first-generation immigrant. I was born in a small village in Guanajuato, Mexico. I immigrated to the United States when I was a toddler and was raised in Wilson, North Carolina. My first exposure to the Immigration System was when my family and I had to go through the Deportation Court process. Thanks to immigration options, my family and I were granted Lawful Permanent Residence and able to remain legally in the United States.

Before attending law school, I was employed as a paralegal at a prominent immigration law office for a few years, where I developed a passion for Immigration Law. With this employment history, I took this knowledge to my law school career.

I attended law school with the goal of further pursuing my immigration career. During the three years of attending law school, I was active in the local immigrant community and focused my studies to immigration. I frequently volunteered at Naturalization Clinics to help contribute something to the local community and to build legal connections.

I graduated from North Carolina Central University School of Law in 2017, and immediately immersed myself in Removal Defense Immigration and many other areas of Immigration Law. I also practice Criminal Law, since it is generally the initiating factor to someone’s detainment by ICE.
