It has been an honor to learn how this process works and be able to help lots of these families.

I’m USC and although I really never lived there, most of my family did, and some of them had trouble getting their documents, so I have seen the difficulties this could be in order to have a normal life.

My main motivator in this work is being able to help families, who I haven’t met in person but have told me their stories through the phone. Being so vulnerable and trusting in us, gets to my heart and makes me want to do the best I can to help them out. No one should be suffering when they are looking for the best for their future and their families. It breaks my heart hearing some of their difficult situations. It makes me really happy when I know I could help them in some way.

I love that we can give honest and sincere consultations, we give accurate information of their process by doing our best. Most of the clients tell us their stories through the phone without meeting us and that kind of trust to get from them is difficult to see, they are so brave for everything they have been through that they deserve nothing but the best; the best service, the best consultation, the best attorneys to help them out. I’m really happy and proud to work here.

I was born and raised in Guadalajara, Mexico. I enjoy listening to music, playing video games, and watching sports — especially European football and Formula 1. I have spent almost every weekend of my life with my family watching every Formula 1 Grand Prix.

I used to work in retail and customer service. While I was happy to be able to help people, it was exhausting to hear all of the complaints about the poor services offered and I used to feel ashamed to work for places that provided such bad services.

Here at Lincoln-Goldfinch Law, I can proudly say that the client care, service, and attention is amazing. When an error happens, the team works to solve it. It is very amazing how all of the people that work here take the mission of the firm — to bring peace of mind to our clients and a fresh start to their families — very seriously.

Watching how seriously everyone takes our mission motivates me to put my best effort forward and help every client as much as I can. I’m so happy to work here.

I was born in Torreon, Mexico in a very loving family. At a very young age, I moved to Ciudad Juarez because my father’s job required it. I lived there for seven years, then I moved back to Coahuila where I graduated from law school in 2009. After this, I moved to Monterrey, Mexico, a city that has a very special place in my heart.

Since I was little, I’ve always dreamed of traveling around the world but as a female lawyer in my country, I realized it was a little bit difficult to do. However, I managed to start traveling and fulfilling my dream. While traveling in different countries, I met more travelers from completely different backgrounds, from which I learned a lot about the diversity of this planet. I learned about other people’s problems that were unimaginable to me, different ways to solve things, mutual respect, and, of course, I gained amazing friendships! Luckily, my husband and I share the same love for traveling!

Getting out of your comfort zone gives you a different perspective, it makes you stronger, and gives you power to achieve new things, it also makes you wiser and more empathetic. I’m glad I can use some of my skills to do what I love the most, which is helping others by doing my job. I’m very moved by the ideals of Lincoln-Goldfinch Law.

My favorite movies are Gladiator and Lord of the Rings. My favorite hobbies include drawing and outdoor activities.

Hello! My name is Cat and I’ve lived in Texas my whole life. After graduating from college, I started working at LGL as an administrative assistant, but I joined the legal team soon after. I miss seeing all our clients face to face, but I’m proud of the work I do in the legal team. I love our work and our team! It’s an honor to have our clients trust me with their pasts and with their futures, and I want to continue this work for as long as possible.

From my earliest days growing up in the vibrant city of Miami, Florida, I was blessed to be raised by the rich cultural tapestry woven together by my Chilean and Cuban immigrant parents. Each summer, a journey to my abuelita’s home in Chile granted me the privilege of immersing myself in the embrace of delicious homemade meals and a beautiful culture that I am immensely proud to call my own. Now, as a devoted mother of two and happily married to a Cuban immigrant, I hold steadfast to the belief in the significance of preserving and celebrating our roots in this adopted land. Guided by this belief, I find great joy in teaching the Chilean heritage to my children through crafting delicious homemade dishes, just as my cherished abuelita once did for me.

I graduated from Florida International University, where I earned a Bachelor of Arts degree in International Relations with a focus on the Middle East. My journey in immigration began in Seattle, Washington, where I worked as a Legal Assistant for a few years.

However, it was during my time at Lincoln-Goldfinch Law that I truly comprehended the power of family-based cases. Witnessing families triumph over adversity and secure their rightful places in this great nation ignited a profound sense of fulfillment within me. To be a part of easing their struggles and assisting them in securing their foothold in this land of promise is a privilege I hold in the highest regard.

I am a proud daughter of immigrants, born in the US but raised in Mexico since I was just a few weeks old. My parents moved to the US in 1999 when I was about 7 years old to give me and my brother that so-called “American Dream.” I remember it like it was yesterday. I remember feeling sad as I had to say good-bye to the place I sometimes still call home. I remember feeling angry at my parents for taking me away from my family, from my friends and from everything I’d ever loved and known.

My parents have never been the type of people who hide their status. They were not ones to live in fear, I was raised knowing what it was to be undocumented and that it was never something to be ashamed of. The one thing my parents never taught me and what they did a great job of hiding was what it actually meant to be undocumented until December 15, 2011. My family received a call from Mexico at early hours in the morning, my grandpa died of a heart attack in his sleep. As soon as I found out, I packed my bags and met my family in the living room, but as soon as I walked in I saw that no one else was ready to leave and that’s when it hit me. In 2011, the cartels had already taken over the Mexican side of the Rio Grande River, and if my dad decided to go to his father’s funeral it meant that there was a possibility he might not make it back alive to his family.

For many years I had been angry at my parents for being selfish and taking me away from my home. It wasn’t until I saw my parents sitting in our living room discussing if it was worth going to my grandfather’s funeral that I realized that everything my parents had done up to that point had been a great sacrifice. After that winter, I knew that I owed it to my parents to do something — I honestly did not know what exactly that something looked like, but I did know that it would probably look something like an American Dream.
February of 2012 is when I started my journey as a community organizer and activist with a small student organization called Minority Affairs Council (MAC). Thanks to them I had the opportunity to work with undocumented youth led organizations at a local, state and national level. It was then I discovered that the way to help my parents and my community was by giving and being their voice. I learned that the power of the immigrant community came from their stories and struggles that they’ve faced in their journey coming to and living in the U.S.

Since February 2012, I have worked with many great organizations all over the country. I’ve met many immigrants and heard hundreds of stories and to this day those stories are the ones that have kept me in the movement. The Lincoln-Goldfinch Law gave me the opportunity to work for them as their Client Outreach Specialist. I can say that so far I’ve had an amazing experience working at this Austin immigration law firm. My position has allowed me to listen to people’s stories and pass along their information to our family based immigration attorney, Kate, in preparation for her consultation with them. Due to a broken immigration system not every story leads to immigration relief, but those stories remind me that the fight is not close to being over. I will continue to fight for my community, and most importantly for my parents because I would not be the woman I am today if it weren’t for all the sacrifices they’ve made and I know that one day their story will end as an American Dream.

Hello! I am Jessie. I was born and raised in Dallas, Texas. A proud daughter of two immigrant parents, I have learned and loved being part of both the U.S. and Mexico. With family in Michoacan and Tamaulipas, I have made many memories that have allowed me to truly appreciate both cultures.

Being born in the U.S. has taught me that the immigrant community has made our country what it is today. I did not know how tough it was to immigrate to the U.S. until I saw my own family go through the different steps of the process. In 2007, immigration law sparked my curiosity, and I began to work in the field to learn as much as I could to better help the immigrant community. I knew that it was my mission to make sure they knew their rights in this country, no matter their status. It has been an incredible, humbling, and inspiring journey that has led me to do this work.

I joined Lincoln-Goldfinch Law to continue with this journey. It is the greatest feeling to see our clients granted their status, whether that is a legal status, residency, or citizenship. Lincoln-Goldfinch Law’s mission is to bring peace to immigrant families.
