Maribel is not only excited about learning more on immigration but can also relate to our immigration clients on a personal level. She knows of the difficult journey a family goes through when a family member is deported. Maribel’s parents were both immigrants who arrived from Mexico and later became U.S. citizens; she also understands the high stress an individual goes through during deportation proceedings since her husband faced the same problem.

In her spare time, she enjoys reading, watching movies, documentaries, and spending time with family.
