Our Team

Nancy Azpeitia

Nancy has been with Lopez Immigration Law for several years assisting clients with a variety of tasks. She is fluent in English and Spanish and helps with anything from incoming phone calls and scheduling appointments to preparing applications for submission to immigration. Nancy is a commissioned Notary Public and has completed the Catholic Legal Immigration Network’s Comprehensive Overview of Immigration Law course, both of which allow her to better serve our clients.

Nancy was born in the state of Guanajuato, Mexico, but grew up in Milwaukee, Wisconsin. Because she is from an immigrant family, she easily identifies with the immigrant community we serve. She understands the sacrifice required to leave your home country behind and face adversity as a result and enjoys knowing her work helps our clients achieve their immigration goals. In her free time, Nancy enjoys spending time with her family.
