Jessica has dedicated her life to our immigrant community. In high school, she taught the first English classes in her area. She studied Spanish in Chicago and México. When she returned to Kansas City, Jessica worked for an immigration lawyer and as a community organizer. Soon, she decided to become a lawyer herself.
While at the UMKC School of Law, she started the immigration process for her husband. Her family expected a four-month separation while he waited in Mexico for his waiver to be approved. Their children cried daily for their father while Jessica continued her studies alone. Eleven long months later, their waiver was finally approved, and their family was reunited.
Jessica continued serving immigrants as a lawyer for non-profit organizations before starting her own firm in 2016. The firm has grown to over 30 team members across several countries!
