All Esther Salas needed was an opportunity to prove she was a difference maker. Esther received that opportunity when Fry & Elder immigration law attorney Lorena Rivas offered her the chance to be a part of the firm’s accomplished immigration law team in 2016.
Esther plays a vital role in the day-to-day operations of Fry & Elder’s immigration law department as one of the firm’s many accomplished legal assistants. Fluent in Spanish, Esther is one of several Fry & Elder employees to be multilingual.
“I was always interested in working in the legal industry; I just needed an opportunity to begin a career and Fry & Elder gave me that opportunity,” Esther Salas said. “I think one of the most rewarding aspects of working at Fry & Elder is that I am able to be a part of some of the most important events in people’s lives. I am able to help people better themselves through our immigration law services. It’s a very rewarding job.”
“I think the most challenging aspect of working in immigration law is that you cannot always give every client what they exactly want or need for some reason or another,” Esther Salas said. “But we do everything possible and as much as we possibly can to help them out in whatever situation they are facing. It’s quite an honor to work for Lorena and be a part of the Fry & Elder team.”
A native of Pomona, California, Esther moved to Tulsa at 10 and has resided in the area ever since. Her family is originally from Guatemala, and she regularly travels back to visit. When she’s not at Fry & Elder, Esther serves as youth leader at Cornerstone Hispanic Church (Iglesia Piedra Angular). She also enjoys cooking and spending time with friends and family and recently married.
