Attorney Laura Báez Torres

Meet the Attorney

When I opened the doors to my law practice, my very first clients were none other than my own parents. As an immigrant who obtained U.S. citizenship at the age of 18, helping my parents transition from green card holders to U.S. citizens wasn’t just a professional milestone—it was a continuation of my own personal journey.

"The day my parents took their oath of citizenship was one of immense pride and joy. It marked the culmination of their long journey to full membership in the American tapestry."

This experience didn’t just change their lives; it redefined the course of my own. Witnessing the peace and happiness that enveloped them as they finally felt ‘at home’ inspired me to continue to dedicate my career to immigration law.

This personal connection to immigration fuels my dedication to each of my clients. I understand on a profound level what it means to live in between worlds, to build a life in a new country, and to finally feel the solid ground of belonging under your feet. Each client’s case is a reflection of my own family’s journey, and I approach it with the same care, dedication, and commitment that I did with my parents’.
