Magdalena Lopez

Immigration Paralegal

Magdalena “Maggie” Lopez joined the firm in July 2012 as receptionist and moved on to immigration paralegal in February 2013. She graduated from Boston University in May 2012 with a degree in history and political science. While in college, she was president of the Undergraduate History Association, as well as an intern for a political campaign.

Maggie was born and raised in East Los Angeles to immigrant parents from Mexico. As a first generation Mexican-American, Maggie knows firsthand how immigration policy affects everyday people, which gives her a more personal connection to the work she does at the firm.
