I remember my first year of law school we had an Immigration attorney visit our class to talk about her career. She was raising children and managed to build a career as well. She had a lasting impact on me and I still speak to her from time to time! I realized then, practicing immigration would allow me to have a powerful positive impact on people’s lives while also raising a family.
I grew up south of Dallas, TX in a community so small that it’s not actually a town. Forty years ago it was pretty far from anything; we would have to drive about 30 minutes to the nearest grocery store as well as to my school!
