Our Attorneys

Attorney Maria I. Lopez

“I have known I wanted to be an immigration attorney for a long time. I lived in Monterrey, Nuevo Leon, Mexico, for several years where I was able to improve my Spanish, but also learn about another culture, which provided me with a new perspective. Later, through my early work experiences, I learned there were many opportunities which I had, but many immigrants did not have. I saw the need for legal assistance and felt I could provide value to the community through my services.

The best part of my job is the people I work with. I love hearing my client’s stories and being able to help them achieve their immigration goals.

When I am not working, I enjoy running and serving my community, whether through work-related activities or through my church.”
