Less than one week after child support attorney Amy Page was featured in the Tulsa Business & Legal News, another Fry & Elder trial lawyer was profiled by the widely-read Oklahoma media publication. Fry & Elder immigration attorney Lorena Rivas, who has become no stranger to the media spotlight, was the subject of a feature story in the Tulsa Business & Legal News last week. The article, which you can READ HERE, was written by long-time legal reporter Ralph Schaefer and focused on Rivas’ thriving and growing Oklahoma immigration law practice from inside the Fry & Elder Tulsa offices.
The article highlights the impact Rivas’ Oklahoma immigration law practice has already had on Fry & Elder since joining the prolific Oklahoma firm in the fall of 2015.
Rivas was quoted in the article saying:
“I have helped because while the firm attorneys knew of immigration law, they really didn’t understand it. Now I have exposed them to the trials and complexities — whether it is difficulties with paperwork or the cultural barrier with clients. From a minority perspective, I think it has brought more of a cultural awareness because I was one of two females in at Fry & Elder when I joined the firm.”
A rising star in the world of immigration law, Rivas’ work provides a shining example of how many different legal realms – immigration law and criminal law included – can intersect with family law. Rivas now has a staff of five, which includes new associate Fry & Elder immigration law attorney Ruth Calvillo.
Much of the reason why Rivas’ immigration law services have been in such high-demand and often land her in Dallas courtrooms is because of the immigration policy changes the Trump administration seeks to implement and has already made.
Rivas visited Capitol Hill and met with Oklahoma delegates, including U.S. Representative Tom Cole, during the annual American Immigration Lawyers Association’s National Day of Action. She also held the featured speaking position at a recent Tulsa County Bar Association seminar this past April.
