More About Brenda

Brenda J. Orozco was born in Mexico City, and came to the United States at the age of 6 with her family and has lived in Durham, NC ever since. She enjoys taking mountain trips with her family as well as hiking in local trails with her furry baby and her husband during her time off.

Brenda received her Associates in Applied Science as a Paralegal from Durham Tech in 2015. She is also a Notary in NC as well as a member of the NCAJ and has been a legal assistant and now a paralegal for about four years now. She started as a volunteer at a youth group in Durham called Jovenes Lideres in Accion/ Youth Leaders in Action at El Centro Hispano as well a member of the Youth group at the Immaculate Conception Church during her High School years. During this time, she was involved in activism, lobbying and protesting at local places as well as in Washington, DC, to help improve immigration laws. The programs opened a new opportunity for her to internship with an immigration attorney who helped the community with deportation orders and DACA Applications in North Carolina. After two years, Brenda found a job in Wake County with another attorney who specialized in traffic, criminal, and family-based immigration petitions. During this time she focused all her energy on immigration and learning new material to prepare immigration petitions. After three years of working on immigration cases, she decided to learn something new and started a new challenge at another law firm, where she learned more about criminal and traffic law. After a year and half, Brenda decided to go back to what she loves most, that is to help people with their immigration cases.
