Featured Lawtina: Maria A. Oviedo

Thank you for sharing part of your story with us, Maria!

Maria A. Oviedo is a law graduate from Texas Tech University in Lubbock, Texas where she also earned her Bachelor of Arts in Political Science. Congratulations on your graduation! 

Maria shares this part of her story with us: “I immigrated to this country from rural Mexico at seven years old with my mother and sister. We were reuniting with my father, who lived and worked in the United States since before I was born. My father worked and saved every penny he could for over 20 years for my siblings and I to be able to attend college. My sister is now an Associate at a major auditing firm, and I have just sat for the Texas Bar Exam and begun my first post-graduate job as an Associate Attorney (pending bar results) for an immigration law firm. My youngest brother will graduate from high school and begin his own journey into higher education in 2 years. 

We wish you the very best, Maria! You’re making your family and community proud.
