Mario Orozco Vazquez

I was born in Guadalajara Mexico. Raised in Los Angeles and lived there most of my life. I started working in civil law protecting worker’s rights since the age of 18. I then became a paralegal working in immigration and family law. I helped over 200 people with their citizenship process during that tenure. I knew first hand what the process was like being first a DACA recipient, then a legal permanent resident and then a US citizen. I recently moved to Denver and look forward to helping the community there as best as I can.

Adriana Garcia

My name is Adriana, I was born in Ciudad Juárez, I am in the Accounting area, I really like what I do because it gives me the opportunity to help clients and understand the situation they are going through, I am the first person they have contact and I can see that sometimes they arrive with many fears. I am the person who is bothering them a lot, calling them constantly, and I understand how hard they work to achieve the American dream, and that is very satisfying since I know that it is a sacrifice that is worth it.

In my free time I really like to walk with my family, go to the movies, listen to music and dance.
