Rosie Renteria joined Fry & Elder in 2015 and has been an important member of the acclaimed Oklahoma law firm’s immigration law department’s team ever since.
Rosie began working in the legal industry in 2007 but said it wasn’t until she joined Rivas and Fry & Elder that she discovered her true legal calling.
“Lorena gave me the opportunity to show my skills without me knowing a lot about the immigration process,” Rosie Renteria said. “She had a lot of confidence in me, and I am forever grateful for that. The moment I started working in this field, I knew that it was for me. It’s a job I am very passionate about because I’ve always dreamed of being able to give back to the Hispanic community.”
Like several other members of Fry & Elder’s highly-regarded immigration law team, Rosie has been directly affected by immigration law. Her parents and her successfully navigated through the immigration process as Mexican immigrants, allowing her to have a deeper understanding of what clients in need of immigration law services are going through.
“I do my best to try and build a personal relationship with each client in order to create trust and comfort,” Rosie Renteria said. “I strive to make a change in the community through my work with the firm. No matter what type of immigration needs a client may have, my goal working at Fry & Elder is to make sure each client understands their options, as well as the process. I help guide cases and clients smoothly and efficiently through the complex immigration process, gathering and reviewing all necessary information from clients for their petitions.”
Fluent in Spanish, Rosie is one of several Fry & Elder employees who are multilingual. She has been a public notary for the State of Oklahoma since 2014 and grew up in Tulsa, attending East Central High School. Rosie is happily married and is a mother of three who likes to cook, shop and spend time with friends and family when she is not at Fry & Elder hard at work.
