Melba is a first-generation immigrant from Ecuador. She came to the United States with her family at a young age and grew up listening to her father’s immigration stories. Like many of our clients, her family came to this country in pursuit of a better life. As a result of her own immigration experience, Melba has always had a desire to work with immigrants and strive to treat each and every client with care and respect. She has extensive experience with visa applications, citizenship applications, petitions to remove conditions on permanent resident status, and family-based petitions.
Prior to joining J&K Law, she worked at reputable law firms in the New York Metropolitan Area and the University of Delaware Research Center. Melba received her B.A. from the University of Delaware and majored in Political Science. Melba is fluent in Spanish.
