Lorena Rivas has already developed a reputation as an elite Oklahoma immigration law attorney.
She is now establishing herself as a sought-after speaker on the important and controversial legal issue. Earlier this year, Rivas presented at a Tulsa County Bar Association CLE event and also gave her compelling personal account of what inspired her to become an Oklahoma immigration law attorney at the University of Central Oklahoma.
Rivas most recently collaborated with fellow immigration law attorney Michelle Edstrom for a Family Immigration 101 CLE presentation during the Immigration & Nationality Law & Your Practice Seminar. Co-sponsored by the Oklahoma Bar Association Immigration Section, the presentation was one of seven featured sessions during the day-long event which took place in Oklahoma City.
The other presentations were:
- Overview of U.S. Immigration Law
- Nonimmigrant Visas – Alphabet Soup of the U.S. Visa System
- Employment Immigration 101
- Removal Proceedings
- Refugees, Asylum Seekers & Other Vulnerable Immigrant Populations
- Executive Orders and Immigration Policy (Ethics)
Rivas and Edstrom’s Family Immigration 101 CLE presentation focused on the “growing intersection of immigration law with Oklahoma family law and adoption law.” It also provided a compelling “overview of how U.S. companies may sponsor certain family members to immigrate to the U.S.”
“It truly was a pleasure to be able to work and present with Michelle,” Rivas said. “She’s extremely knowledgeable and is very highly-respected, as were all the other attorneys and presenters. It was a great CLE event that offered a variety of important sessions on immigration law.”
Rivas’ further enhanced her reputation as an elite Oklahoma immigration law attorney when she visited our nation’s capital this past April and met with Oklahoma lawmakers to discuss and advocate for necessary reforms to America’s immigration system and to prevent policies that would hurt Oklahoma like mass deportations during the annual American Immigration Lawyers Association’s National Day of Action.
Rivas is one of several Fry & Elder attorneys who have developed a reputation and following as being an informative and engaging presenter on an array of legal issues. Fry & Elder partners Aaron D. Bundy and M. Shane Henry received the 2017 Earl Sneed Award for their significant and outstanding CLE contributions at the OBA Annual Meeting in Tulsa this past November.
