Ms. Monroy is a product of her parents’ sacrifice and dedication to provide their family with a better life in the United States. She joined SD Immigration Lawyers to help other immigrant families achieve this same goal. Ms. Monroy’s desire to serve the immigration community stems from her own experience as a native Colombian who had to go through the entire immigration process to build a life in this country. Having arrived with a B-1 tourist visa, Ms. Monroy knows first hand the procedure for visa application and renewals, green card application, adjustment of status to permanent resident and the naturalization process.
As a first generation college graduate, Ms. Monroy obtained a Bachelor of Science in Psychology and Political Science from the University of Houston. Ms. Monroy went on to pursue her law degree at Thurgood Marshall School of Law. As part of the legal training for her J.D., Ms. Monroy studied international law abroad. She lived in France, Switzerland, Italy, and Greece for months at a time. Ms. Monroy’s exposure to different nationalities offered her the opportunity to immerse in the various cultures and become familiar with multiple languages. Today, Ms. Monroy’s understanding of cultural nuances in other countries, allows her to effectively communicate with our international clients abroad who seek immigration services in southern California.
After receiving her Juris Doctorate, Ms. Monroy was determined to become the best advocate for her future immigration clients. To do so she knew that she would have to master the crossover between criminal and immigration law. This specialty area of the law is complex and requires specialized legal training to address the technical aspects involved. In search of this specialized training, Ms. Monroy moved to San Diego to pursue a Masters Degree in trial advocacy in the area of federal criminal defense at California Western School of Law. This experience led Ms. Monroy to join SD Immigration Lawyers to serve the immigration community in Southern California, preserving and defend immigrant’s rights in the U.S.
