About Ms. Saucedo

  I immigrated to the United States at the age of sixteen and soon embraced the opportunities this country offers including education and the ability to excel professionally.  I completed my undergraduate studies at St.  Mary’s University in San Antonio in 1996, graduating with a Bachelor’s degree in Economics, and was then admitted to the same university’s law school program.  I obtained a Juris Doctor in 1999 and was licensed to practice law in Texas that same year.

Since the commencement of my career I have focused on international law, and in 2001 I completed a Masters in Legal Letters in European and International Law from the University in Geneva Switzerland.  I have always been passionate about diversity and assisting individuals in making their pursuit for happiness and financial improvement a reality. Practicing immigration law has allowed me to combine my experience, passion, and legal training to offer to my clients not only advice, but a genuine understanding of their goals, motivations and personal or business needs.

Throughout my fifteen years of experience I have helped hundreds of individuals with affirmative administrative proceedings to obtain legal status in the Unites States, defended families from deportation/removal, represented businesses to secure the legal employment of qualified foreign professionals and skilled workers, worked with investors in order to start or expand their companies in the United States, and represented battered women and victims of crime to emerge from fear and oppression by helping them obtain legal permanent residency.

Loving my job has also allowed me to be at peace and maintain a balanced personal life with my three children and husband.  In my free time I volunteer at a clinic, teach religious education, and participate in community projects that empower women and immigrants.
