As a first-generation American born to Mexican immigrants, Brianda is passionate about assisting foreign nationals through the immigration process. Through her family’s experience with the complex immigration system, she is able to understand the needs and expectations of clients and is dedicated to providing the highest level of advocacy.
After obtaining a Bachelor’s degree in Spanish Literature from the University of California San Diego, she went on to attend the University of San Diego School of Law. While in law school, she served on the San Diego International Law Journal, volunteered at the USD Immigration Clinic, and worked part-time at a local private firm. It was during this time that she gained valuable experience in family-based and employment-based immigration matters, in addition to asylum, naturalization, and removal proceedings.
Upon passing the California Bar, Brianda has been dedicated to helping clients in a variety of immigration matters, including securing various nonimmigrant employment-authorizing visa classifications and representing clients before U.S. immigration-related agencies.
In addition to the above, Amanda also routinely counsels corporate clients on various compliance issues, including I-9, E-Verify, and Public Access File regulatory requirements. She conducts mock audits of corporate records to assist in client compliance in these areas, as well as assists clients in developing best practices to aid in regulatory compliance.
