While attending Texas Tech University School of Law Marissa clerked for a Family Court Judge in Dallas, Texas and participated in the Family Law and Housing Clinic as a student attorney.

“I wanted to be in a position where I could establish a personal connection with my clients and really help people. Immigration law is a field where you have the opportunity to help a community of people with something that has a very significant and personal impact on their life.”
