Josefina Louis earned her Bachelor of Arts in Political Science from the University of Texas in Arlington in 2010. She first became interested in immigration law in 2012, through her internship at a large nonprofit in Fort Worth, Texas. Because of her tireless work and dedication to the nonprofit’s DACA program, that same year she was hired on as a part-time caseworker. During this time, Mrs. Louis was studying at the Texas Wesleyan School of Law, now known as the Texas A&M School of Law, where she received her Juris Doctorate in May 2014. In November 2014, Mrs. Louis was licensed by the Supreme Court of Texas.
Before joining the Law Offices of Veronica Garza, PLLC, Mrs. Louis worked for nonprofits and private law firms. She was the Senior Attorney at a nonprofit in Houston, Texas where she provided immigration guidance to her staff and the general public through numerous Know Your Rights presentations. Mrs. Louis’s immigration experience includes family-based and humanitarian cases, such as Family Petitions, Waivers of Inadmissibility and Unlawful Presence, Special Immigrant Juvenile cases, applications for Naturalization, Asylum claims, and Nunc Pro Tunc cases.
Mrs. Louis continues to be committed to immigration law, and her main goal is to provide exceptional service, honesty, and care to every case she works on. She understands the importance of family unity and is dedicated to advocate for her immigration clients by helping them navigate a very complex area of the law. Mrs. Louis is a first-generation Mexican-American, born and raised in Texas, and she is fluent in English and Spanish. She is a member of the Dallas Bar Association and the Hispanic Bar Association. In her free time, she enjoys spending time with her husband, family, and friends.
