Cindy Esquivel, Associate Attorney

I was born and raised in the Rio Grande Valley. I graduated with a Bachelor’s degree in Political Science and a Double Minor in Legal Studies and Philosophy. I believe giving back to my community is important. That is why I have a strong foundation in volunteer work.

During undergrad, I volunteered with Mothers Against Drunk Driving (MADD) by helping gather data in the criminal county courts to fund resources for victims of drunk driving. During law school, I was recognized by the Houston Immigration Legal Services Collaborative (HILSC) for my volunteer work of more than one year with Tahirih Justice Center in helping asylum seekers prepare their asylum applications for Immigration Court.

During law school, I was the President of the Institute for International & Immigration Law where I co-directed a certificate program that allows law students to graduate with a concentration in international and immigration law. During my tenure as President, I co-hosted and participated in the most Naturalization and Asylum pro-bono workshops in the history of the organization. This enabled me to obtain the experience necessary and help the most needed in Houston’s minority community.

Prior to working for the Law Office of Norma Sepulveda, PLLC, I worked for two solo firms and a law firm in Houston. While working there, I gained extensive experience in family-based petitions and asylum cases.

As a daughter of immigrants, I can assure you that your case will be in the hands of a person who cares about the outcome of your case.
