I began studying abroad and learning languages when I was fourteen years old. I took part in a program in Switzerland where I quickly fell in love with French and made it my endeavor to become fluent. I have studied at Université de Genève, Sorbonne Université & Jönköping University. I further completed my undergraduate studies at the University of Central Florida where I majored in Economics and minored in French.
As of today, I speak, read and write English, Spanish and French fluently. My love for languages arose from an incredible need to give back by working in Immigration. During the Summer of 2019, I participated in an Immigration Law and Border Enforcement Program in San Diego, California. I visited the San Ysidro Port of Entry, met with U.S. Customs and Border Protection (“CBP”) and crossed over to Tijuana, Mexico where I visited the U.S. Consulate. Subsequently, I became a volunteer intern with the U.S. Department of Homeland Security, Office of the Principal Legal Advisor in Orlando, Florida (“ICE”). I further participated as a student representative at Barry University Dwayne O. Andreas School of Law Immigration Clinic where I represented non-citizens seeking immigration benefits and defending against removal proceedings. As of today, I am a founding partner at Quintero Fortich Legal where I handle multiple immigration matters and represent clients before several federal agencies. I can now openly say I have achieved one of my life long dreams and will continue to immerse myself in cultures and languages while practicing Immigration Law so that I can give back to a community that has already given me so much. I look forward to working alongside you and your loved ones so that you may achieve your own personal dreams in this wonderful country.
